Square Enix Holds Tomb Raider Charity Auction for GamesAid
Fans of Tomb Raider have the chance to bid on some amazing and highly collectible Tomb Raider merchandise, courtesy of Square Enix. Special items are available for sale and all proceeds are going to the UK based charity GamesAid.
If you haven’t heard of GamesAid before, they are a UK games industry charity that distributes funds to a wide variety of other young people’s charities. They act as a broker of charitable activity on behalf of the industry, and any funds raised by GamesAid are used to support charities primarily in the UK.
Square Enix have kindly donated some amazing Tomb Raider merchandise, and here’s what is currently up for grabs:
For starters there is a Tomb Raider Limited Edition ‘Courage’ Crate. This is the crate that was given to press members and a handful of VIPs, and is packed full of goodies and merchandise. In this wonderfully presented box, you will get:
– A Tomb Raider collector’s edition for Xbox 360 (PAL)
– A limited edition Xbox 360 controller
– A limited edition Brady Games Strategy guide
– A limited edition lithograph
– A Dark Horse Tomb Raider Graphic Novel
– A ‘Sisters of Artemis’ flask
– A Tomb Raider Camelbak Water Bottle
This is an amazing haul for any fan (and would also make a pretty good birthday/Christmas present).
As well as this there are two very special Tomb Raider prints up for grabs – both of which came from Square Enix’s BAFTA panel and are signed by Darrell Gallagher, Noah Hughes and Rhianna Pratchett. The right one is the ‘Crossroads’ print, and the left one (my personal favourite) is the ‘Tourniquet’ print.
All 3 of these items are available to bid on from the links below and remember, if you win one of these, the proceeds will be going to worthwhile charities across the UK. It’s the perfect opportunity to grab yourself a nice gift while donating money to a good cause.
All items will be shipped for free in the UK, so if you’re bidding from outside of the UK please remember to consider and calculate the postage/shipping costs.
