TLDR: With your donation, you can earn up to 500 entries into a contest for a brand-new PS5 and an Xbox Series X, plus a prize package worth over $5,000.
Maybe it’s because of COVID-19. Maybe it’s because people love the frenzy of hunting uber-elusive prey. Or maybe it’s just because a pair of mega-corporations planned it this way all along. But no matter why it’s happening, there’s no doubt that the supply of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles available this holiday season will come nowhere close to satisfying demand.
We’ve known for months that the long-anticipated launch of both Sony and Microsoft’s next generation gaming consoles would be met with shortages, anxiety and some absolutely insane scalper prices. But now that it’s coming to pass, that’s small consolation for those trying in vain to get their hands on these almost mythical boxes. Or worse yet, for those parents trying to get hold of the one and only item that will make their kids Christmas morning a happy one.
Look, we had our own Rachel Kaser check ‘em out. We know the PS5 and Xbox Series X are both pretty great. And while we can’t get one to you in time to be under your tree, we can do one better. We can give you a PS5 AND an Xbox Series X along with literally everything else you’ll need to enjoy both systems. And in addition to winning this over-the-top prize in our Ultimate Gaming Giveaway contest, you can even put your thumb on the scale and boost your odds of winning this crazy package of stuff, all by helping a fantastic cause.
Yes, for filling out the free entry form, you could be the lucky winner who takes home both a brand-new PlayStation 5 as well as a brand-new Xbox Series X. No console is complete these days without multiplayer functionality, so this package also includes 5 year subscriptions to both PlayStation Plus and the Xbox Game Pass services so you’ll always have an opponent to challenge for friends to battle alongside.
The systems and services are stellar, but since you need more tech as well to fully enjoy them, this collection is rounded out with a Sony 65-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV, a Bose QuietComfort 35 Series 2 Gaming Headset, a Corsair Optical Gaming Keyboard and a Secretlab TITAN Gaming Chair for the ultimate home gaming experience you could imagine.
That’s a prize collection that would cost over $5,100 to buy. And of course, right now, these systems are tough to buy anyway.
Considering how overwhelming this collection is, you know the pursuit of this prize package will be fierce. Thankfully, you can actually help improve your odds by making a donation to the Playing for Change Foundation. Right now, the non-profit Playing for Change organization runs impactful music education programs with over 2,000 marginalized and at-risk children in 10 different countries.
From Bangladesh to Morocco, from Argentina to Thailand, the foundation is sparking both personal and social change in these homegrown programs — and with your donation, you can help keep their dreams alive.
And you might just get a little something out of your donation beyond the satisfaction of helping needy kids. For a $10 donation to Playing for Change, you’ll get an additional 100 entries for the prize package. For $15, they’ll bump that up to 150 extra entries. For $25, you get 250 chances to win, and for a $50 donation, you’ll get a whole 500 opportunities to be the ultimate sweepstakes winner.
You can either enter for free right now or get serious about winning with your donation. Either way, get your entries in by Feb. 26, 2021 for a shot to win. Good luck!
