The following is an excerpt from George R.R. Martin Wants to Kill You for $20,000
The honor is reserved for a top-tier donator on Martin's Prizeo crowdfunding campaign, raising money to support the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and Food Depot in Martin's adopted hometown of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The winner will choose their character's position in the fictional world (lordling, maester, peasant, whore, etc.) and meet a grisly death that could rival the Red Wedding.
The Hollywood Reporter explains why...
The following is an excerpt from The "Game of Thrones" author is raising money for his favorite wolf sanctuary in Santa Fe.
Martin and his wife, Parris McBride, are avowed wolf lovers and say the money will go toward improving the habitats at the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary. It will also benefit a local food pantry, The Food Depot of Santa Fe.

The following is an excerpt from A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE MIGHT BE 8 BOOKS BECAUSE GEORGE R.R. MARTIN
Listen, we’re not complaining — by any stretch — we want to stay in Westeros as long as possible.

WochitEntertainment: You Could Be A Character In Game Of Thrones
The only thing better than Game of Thrones is being in Game of Thrones. Using Prizeo, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is trading away tons of GoT-themed prizes to help out with some of the causes he's most passionate about, wolves and ending hunger. For a cool $20,000 , Martin will name a character after you, let you choose that character's station in life, and brutally murder that character in a manner befitting one of the most gruesome, blood-lustful series ever.
