George R.R. Martin will have you killed for $20,000

Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin is raising money for Santa Fe organizations The Food Depot and Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, and he’s willing to kill you to do it. Violently.

Perhaps not surprising, given the way Game of Thrones tends to shake out. But now you too can be done away with in one of Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire books—if you spend enough. As per 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." 

Don’t have the coin? That’s cool, I guess. You can still get some other cool prizes, or even win something: 

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.
