for a good cause: addressing poverty in nicaragua

hi all, it was brought to my attention that a one of a kind timepiece from Girard Perregaux has been donated for a raffle to a worthy charitable cause to address poverty in Nicaragua. More details can be found on both their site click here and will be found on's GP forum site soon (link will be up for this once its available)

Everyone can participate, no matter what country they reside in so do contribute if you are inclined to do so or looking to possibly win this piece unique.

Girrard-Perregaux Virtus White
Support us by participating in this special raffle!

“Virtus White” is an utterly exclusive piece handcrafted by Girard-Perregaux for ANF. The only one ever manufactured of its kind, this extraordinary watch was created to strengthen ANF’s efforts of providing hope and relief to children and families such as those affected by Hurricane Felix. Through the Foundation’s “Bright Future Reconstruction Fund” and relief operations, ANF seeks to rebuild lives and create new sources of opportunity. All suggested contributions of $100 made to the Foundation will merit participation in this historic drawing for Girard-Perregaux’s “Virtus White.”

The winner will be announced at ANF’s Annual Gala on the night of
December 1st, 2007.

Virtus was born from the collaboration of two distinguished organizations, Girard-Perregaux and American Nicaraguan Foundation. The name itself finds its roots in Latin expressing virtue, character, valor, simplicity, and strength in the face of adversity. Reflecting these characteristics in its work, ANF confronts the day-to-day obstacles of working to eradicate extreme poverty in
Nicaragua, never faltering, and always providing dynamic solutions to dynamic problems.

Few names in the rarefied world of Swiss “Haute Horlogerie” are as evocative and historical as GIRARD-PERREGAUX. The activities of this “Maison” trace as far back as 1791, giving it more than two centuries of heritage and uninterrupted operations. GIRARD-PERREGAUX is one of the last, few, true Swiss watch “Manufactures” (from the Latin, “Hand Made”), taking a holistic approach to watch-making and building an authentic product with its own genuine identity, rather than an anonymous assembly of components.
