Be a Part of ‘Game of Thrones’, Raise Money for Charity

GOT Charity

 

Game of Thrones is currently one of the hottest shows airing on television right now. Millions of viewers tune in week after week, sometimes only to find that their favorite character is on the chopping block for that episode. George R. R. Martin isn’t afraid to kill of his characters for the sake of story development, much to both the dismay and delight of fans all over the world.

If you have no problem with death, then how about staring it in the face in an alternate world–specifically in Martin’s GOT? He’s currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Prizeo to benefit the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, where one of the rewards is the chance to appear in an upcoming “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel. That’s only if you have $20,000 to fork over.

Otherwise, you can donate whatever amount for a chance to win a trip to the sanctuary with Martin himself. You can find more information on the campaign’s Prizeo page.

Want to change the world? You’re not alone. Sometimes you get the feeling that you’re insignificant, because you’re just one in several billion currently inhabiting the planet. That’s where you’re wrong. It’s a cliche, but it’s true all the same: one can make a difference, you just have to have the courage to do so.

One way to get started is with One Today. It essentially features a non-profit project by reputable charities and organizations each day so you can make a pledge and make a difference. Because while you may be too busy to go out and do something, your contributions will be able to help those who are already on the field.

Poptopia Gives You a Popcorn-Scented Gaming Experience

Poptopia

Poptopia is making a splash as the first scented mobile game in the market, although I’m not sure how the added smells enrich the gaming experience. The game itself is relatively simple enough. All you have to do is pop kernels into popcorn to feed the on-screen mouth and keep going for as long as you can.

The scent is care of the Pop Dongle, which contains enough essence of pop corn to emit the delicious scent of popcorn 500 to 1,000 times. Unfortunately, only a few people will be able to experience the game with the accompanying scents, as the dongles aren’t available for sale. The Pop Dongles are only up for bidding on eBay, with previous listings bringing in bids of up to $315.

That seems like an atrocious price to pay for a mobile gaming accessory, but it’s all for a good cause: 100% of the proceeds from the auctions will go to the American Red Cross. To bid or to find out more about the Pop Dongle, you can check out the listing here.

World’s Biggest Bra is Up for Auction on eBay for a Good Cause

World's Biggest Bra

Ladies and gents, feast your eyes on the World’s Largest Bra, which is a mega-sized 1222B! But before we talk about this ginormous piece of lingerie, let’s talk about the events that made it happen.

Bigger isn’t always better except when it has something to do with a certain part of your body–and by that, I mean your heart. (Just in case you were thinking of something else, which I totally had no intention of making you do. Snicker.)

In all seriousness, having a figuratively bigger heart opens your eyes to the plights of others and the realities of the world. Cancer takes away so many precious lives every year, especially breast cancer, and the sad thing is that some of these lives could have been saved by treatment, had they made the discovery sooner. One way to do that is by getting regular check-ups. And one way to remind men and women to do that is through an awareness campaign, like the ones that the Breast Cancer Campaign is doing.

Some people decided to help out the BCA this year and they did so with extremely huge efforts: by making the 97-foot long brassiere you see above (and after the jump!)
