UPDATE: The auction is now live! Take a look at the items up for grabs below.
We recently assembled a team to participate in the Edmonton Easter Seal’s Drop Zone fundraiser. Our 28-story drop date is fast approaching, and our fundraising efforts are now in full force. We are incredibly thankful for all the support we’ve received so far, and we want to extend the invitation to our fans.
Enter… the BioWare Drop Zone Charity Auction! On August 19, we will be auctioning off a number of exciting items on eBay. Here’s a way to support a great charity event and also score some great BioWare swag! I’ll just say that when word spread ’round the studio about what we have available for auction… there were more than a few envious gasps.
We have numerous collections up for grabs. We have a (very) limited edition Dragon Age lore book, a collector’s edition Mass Effect art book, multiple comic book collections, copies of our games, and more. And as a special thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goals, the auctioned items will be autographed by BioWare developers. This is a one of a kind opportunity to get really cool BioWare memorabilia!
If that wasn’t enough, we are pleased to announce that Mark Meer, the voice of Commander Shepard, has been gracious enough to donate his talents to provide a personalized voicemail greeting as an auction item. Imagine what your friends will think when they call you only to find out that you are off saving the galaxy with Commander Shepard himself. You might never answer your phone again!
We’re excited to share these items with our community. More importantly, we’re excited about supporting this good cause. Easter Seals is committed to ensuring that people with disabilities can enjoy full access to all of life’s opportunities. BioWare might just make video games, but we’ve always endeavored to make our games as accessible to as many people as possible. It is with this in mind that we think that partnering with Easter Seals for the Drop Zone challenge is a great idea, and we hope you agree. We look forward to your generous participation in the upcoming auction.
