Ever wonder what it takes to be one of those “beetles” George R. R. Martin loves to mercilessly CUNGHHH CUNGHHH CUNGHHH with his pen. Well, if you have $20,000 that you don’t mind donating to Martin’s charities, Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot of Santa Fe, you could see yourself taken out of the game as quick as you can say, “ F–k the king.”
One female and one male out of 400 entries have the opportunity to win and depending on how many fans have $20,000 lying around the odds could be in your favor.
The winners of the contest will be able to pick the status of their character (lady, peasant, knight, prince, etc.) and will carry their name. Unfortunately, the winners will not be able to decide how they meet their fate. George is sure to develop the winners into a new fan favorite only to brutally kill them off like all the rest.
Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary is a non-profit organization that houses 60 wolves and wolf dogs and works to prevent the declining U.S. wolf population. The Food Depot is a charity that provides for tens of thousands of people and 135 non-for-profit agencies.
George R. R. Martin writes on Prizeo site, “I’ve always been fond of wolves… direwolves in Westeros, and real wolves in the real world. US wolf populations hit critical lows during the twentieth century, and finding a way for humans to co-exist with this majestic creatures is an important part of the conservation movement.”
Now, if you’re not interested in throwing down so much cash there are cheaper options. $10 gets you the title Ranger, $25 Grand Maester, $50 Kingsguard, and if you don’t quite have $20,000 you could donate $15,000 to have breakfast with George R. R. Martin. Thankfully the winner won’t have to worry about their life since this won’t be a wedding.
