Fascinating fact:

Game Of Thrones author George R. R. Martin’s fundraising initiative for a wolf sanctuary in his native New Mexico has become a huge success – prizes including the chance to become a character in his next book and one of the writer’s signature hats were snapped up by fans and helped Martin raise $350,000 (GBP219,000). The highlight was the chance to become a literary character for a $20,000 (GBP12,500) donation to the Prizeo campaign. Facebook employee Dave Goldblatt was one of two fans who snapped up the offer.
