Q. Hey.... Oracle!

I was wondering, what became of the Parachutes globe? Do the band still have it in their studio, or has it been sold on eBay? Has it met some other fateful end?

Thanks,


The Oracle replies:

If you use the search option on the Oracle section and type in the word globe, the results returned will give you several answers.

The original globe* was sold as part of the End of Decade Sale with the proceeds going to Kids Company.

The final amount raised in U.S dollars for Lot 6: The original Parachutes globe was $12,968.51.


*In the End of Decade Sale video, it says globes plural, but only one was put up for auction.
