With the #Right2Game campaign, we’re looking to emphasize the notion that gaming is not only worthwhile and socially acceptable, but is also an important activity that’s deserving of more support from people who might not fully understand gaming.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 22, 2015
Historic video game scorekeeping entity Twin Galaxies has received the 3 NBA Championship Rings of former Los Angeles Laker team captain Rick Fox who is donating them in support of the Right2Game Indiegogo campaign (http://www.right2game.org). The rings are being offered up as prizing for the highest donation tier.
For a sports collector, these rings hitting the market represent an unprecedented event: a collection of this nature—three back-to-back-to-back championship rings rewarded for one NBA team’s consecutive wins—has never been made available for public purchase. Rick has stated that the rings are only ever going to be made available as part of this campaign, and if unclaimed, will never be offered again.
Among other valuable items offered by celebrities from their personal collections in support of the campaign are a pair of original 1982 Nikes worn by director/writer/actor Christopher Guest as character “Nigel Tufnel” in This is Spinal Tap, and Jamie Lee Curtis’s little black dress that was featured and made famous in the striptease scene in True Lies.
Helmed by Twin Galaxies, the #Right2Game movement encompasses the organization’s efforts to elevate video game players worldwide, and to positively inform public perception of video game playing while diminishing the societal anxiety and discouragement that surrounds the activity. Proceeds from the sale of the rings and other prized items will go directly toward Twin Galaxies’ initiatives. The movement has special significance to Fox, who is strongly invested in video game culture—and who has been setting his entrepreneurial sights in significant ways over the 3 years on the world of eSports.
“With the #Right2Game campaign, we’re looking to emphasize the notion that gaming is not only worthwhile and socially acceptable, but is also an important activity that’s deserving of more support from people who might not fully understand gaming,” said Fox.
Twin Galaxies, founded in 1981, supports and recognizes the achievements of gamers, serves as an official video game world record and player ranking authority, and celebrates video game enthusiasts and their achievements with published recognition online, national magazines and books, award ceremonies, broadcast events, and by maintaining a public database of video game leader-board accomplishment.
The #Right2Game campaign is accepting contributions ranging from $5 to $1,500,000, and is hosted on crowdfunding site Indiegogo.
