Pope raffles gifts for charity

 
December 3rd 2014
 

Having recently ordered the installation of showers for use by homeless people living around the Vatican, Pope Francis is now raffling off expensive gifts he has received to raise money for the poor – according to some reports, for the Vatican’s work around homelessness.

Raffle prizes include a new four-wheel-drive Fiat Panda, bicycles, an espresso coffee machine and watches.

The Pope is known for rejecting the rich trappings of his position, including ditching the traditional red cape trimmed with ermine worn by his predecessor.

Tickets for the raffle cost 10 euros ($12.50) and the winners will be announced on 8 January 2015.
