UPDATE: Here is the eBay link now that the auction has gone live. Good Luck!
Giving back to community – there is no feeling quite like it. Whether it is volunteering at a local arcade or raising money for your favorite gaming charity, the opportunities for gamers to make a difference are endless.
Starting August 11th, I will be donating some of my time, talent and treasure to give back to the community. As an avid video game collector, I’ve come across some rare finds at local stores. About a year ago, I found this ‘factory sealed’ (yes, you heard correctly) copy of Lunar 2: Eternal Blue – Complete for the PlayStation 1 system. What’s an even rarer experience – I only paid $50 for this prized possession. Fast forward to now, and I’ve decided to sell this on eBay to another avid game collector. Whoever is fortunate enough to be the highest bidder on this collector item will also have the honor of knowing that 100% of their proceeds will be going directly to the Child’s Play charity. This gaming charity provides kids in hospitals with the opportunity to play with the coolest games and game consoles the industry has to offer. As an extra incentive, I will personally match any amount, from the opening bid (which will be set at $50) to the highest bid price (up to $250). This money will also go to the same charity (Example: If final price of the game ends at $275, I will personally donate $250, with a total value of $525 going to the charity).
This product will go up for bid on eBay’s site around 4 PM Eastern Time on Sunday, August 11th. As much as gamers are competitive in nature, I also know how close-knit we can be when helping fellow gamers out. If you are reading the article, I’d appreciate everyone’s help in spreading the word to your fellow game collectors and friends about this charitable opportunity. Just spreading awareness about this event solidifies your involvement in making a difference.
