George R. R. Martin, author of the hit Game Of Thrones
book series, obviously LOVES saving wolves. He saves seven in the first chapter of the first book!
But in real life he's saving wolves too! Not to mention dingos and coyotes!
And to help raise money for the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and Food Depot, George is now offering the greatest prize of all- he'll KILL YOU! In a Game Of Thrones book that is! Just like [SPOILER REDACTED]!
Wouldn't you love for your literary (and later TV) death to impact fans around the world?? It'll just cost you a few (thousand) dollars to charity!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) and go to George's Prizeo page to see all the other glittering prizes that can be yours!

You want controversy? Look no further than Pakistan's newest gameshow, where the prize you win is a real life human baby!
What the what??
Orphaned infants are being given away as PRIZES on this new game show, Aman Ramazan, which is obvi creating a HUGE split between those who are happy that these children are no longer orphans, and those who think these human beings are being treated like objects!
The biggest thing here is that normal adoption is a long process for a good reason — families are vetted thoroughly before they're able to bring a child home, and it seems like this game show just skips a lot of that very important step. Plus, how will these kids feel when they grow up? Like they were just some trophy to be won or lost?
Here's footage from the game show below!
But, that's not all…Here's what an expert with Human Rights Watch said:
