For $20,000, You Could Get Killed in New Game of Thrones Book
J Thoendell stashed this in Game of Thrones
The author of the "Game of Thrones" books, George R.R. Martin, is crowdfunding for a good cause: he's asking for donations to the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot, two Santa Fe-based organizations.
He's asking for donations to the two organizations through a Prizeo campaign, and there are 60 days left. But feeling good about donating money to a good cause is only half the reward.
For $20,000, Martin will name a character after you in an upcoming "Song of Ice and Fire" novel. You can choose what your character does, and, perhaps best of all, your character will "certainly meet a grisly death."
I would like to be Jeeje, the first MISTRESS of Coin.
However I am killed, I would like access to Milk of the Poppy aforehand.
Death by Milk of the Poppy?
$20k seems a small price to pay for a role in Game of Thrones!
People are lining up to pay 10-100 time that for a change to go to outer space...
Sigh, yet another pop culture reference whose importance I miss while I am in my own world...
Richard Branson is taking reservations from people to go to Outer Space once he gets clearance.
