Fergie Hands Over Her Hummer For A Good Cause
Rock diva Fergie Duhamel recently sold her not-so-eco-friendly Hummer on eBay. The earnings were donated to a noteworthy charity, Global Green USA. It’s a cool environmental group founded by former Russian President Mikhail Gorbachev; which works globally to secure sustainability on the planet. Although, the cynics out there may be spouting out that the Black Eyed Peas singer probably had just grown tired of the gas guzzler in her driveway…Fergie’s donated auto is a generous contribution.
There’s no doubt about it- over the past several years, since it’s inception in the 1990’s, Hummers have been considered a top-notch SUV.

Compared to many top-of-the-line foreign made SUVs, it’s an auto that stands head and shoulders above the crowd- cost-wise. Priced at around 55,000 MSP…today’s Hummer is at least more than 10,000 dollars less than it’s competitors.
