You Too Can Die in the New 'Game of Thrones' Novel If You Donate to a Wolf Sanctuary and a Food Bank
If you ever dreamed of meeting a grizzly end in the land of Westeros, here is your chance. George R.R. Martin is auctioning off an opportunity for a lucky Game of Thrones fan to appear, and get murdered in, the upcoming installment of the series. That prize goes to the first person to donate $20,000 to his joint fundraising campaign for both the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and the Food Depot, a New Mexico food bank that provides hundreds of thousands of meals a year to locals in need.
Even if you can’t afford the $20,000 price tag or you are dubious of Martin actually finishing his next novel (don’t rush him guys! Westeros wasn’t burned in a day!) you can still get some Game of Thrones merch. For $350 you take home a signed map of Westeros. For $600 you get a signed Game of Thrones cookbook and for $7,500 you become the proud owner of a hat that sat upon the head that contained the brain that created white walkers. Even if you just contribute a few dollars you are automatically entered to win the chance to visit the wolf sanctuary with Martin via helicopter. Maybe he’ll even let you take home your own direwolf.
