We love James Gunn. You love James Gunn. Excluding ridiculous internet trolls, everybody loves James Gunn. We were stoked out of our minds when the Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker had a Funko figure made in his honor, but given the limited supply, they quickly sold out before we, and most people, could get our hands on one. So basically, “You get nothing! You lose! Good day, sir!”
Not so fast.
Gunn took to Facebook today and announced that he has five Funkos to give away, with an additional five being donated by the company itself, and you stand the chance to win one by raising money to rebuild and save lives in Puerto Rico.
“It doesn’t take much to help out!! A ticket is only $1 or you can buy 12 tickets for only $10! Because there are 10 of them, you have much better changes of winning. And every single dollar used to buy a ticket will go to United for Puerto Rico to help the people there to breathe and drink and eat and LIVE.”
Unlike the figures that are selling on eBay for hundreds of dollars, you could potentially win a Funko for as little as a buck- and these are personally signed by James Gunn. The greater reward, however, is knowing that you’re helping to save the lives of those who desperately need you.
