Always with a sense of humor :) 
In addition to building the cars, there was a charity component of the project. We chose to work with ArtWorks through the Armory Center For The Arts in Pasadena, and were sponsored by the Rowe & Gayle Giesen Trust. We helped students with posters they were working on for SexEd as well as screen printing. We also started a Charity Donation collection to gather supplies for the children at the Armory to use. 
One of the posters we put around Art Center to collect materials of all kinds to be donated to the Armory for children to use in creative ways. 
All of the teams from Art Center College of Design Grad ID, the Beijing University of Technology College of Art & Design, and Pasadena City College.
