For $20K You Can Get Violently Murdered in a Game of Thrones Book

George R.R. Martin wants to murder you.

No one is probably surprised by that, because he seems likely to kill basically everyone ever. But don't get too alarmed—he wants to do it for a good cause. He's crowdfunding for two Santa Fe organizations, the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot, via Prizeo. If you donate enough, Martin will actually put you in one of his books—and then kill you off in a totally heinous way. Via Business Insider:

For $20,000, Martin will name a character after you in an upcoming "Song of Ice and Fire" novel. You can choose what your character does, and, perhaps best of all, your character will "certainly meet a grisly death." For $7,500, you "will be sent one of George's old greek sailor caps (well worn!)."

But even if you don't have that much coin to spend, you can still win a pretty tremendous prize: all donors will be entered into a contest where the prize is to fly out to Santa Fe with a friend to spend a day touring the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary with Martin himself.

Guys. For $2 I will kill you off on my Tumblr devoted to Jezebel commenter fanfic. Be the first one to die in the next edition of my hit series "Lesbian Shitasses 3: Problematic Lentils and Diva Cups."

Proceeds go to a good Vodka cause.
