The ? Mark Box For Charity, Help Give A Laptop To A Child

By Spencer . December 13, 2010 . 11:35am

SSPX0186We receive a fair amount of swag at Siliconera. Instead of putting these items in a display case we want these press goodies to make a positive impact.

 

So, we’re stuffing our swag in this question mark box. Yes, its an actual box that looks like a ? mark block from Super Mario Bros. It’s pretty big too! The exact dimensions are 16" x 16" x 15" and the box is packed to the brim.

 

We took a picture of it next to a Disgaea DVD for scale.

If you want the box and its delicious, but mysterious contents you have to bid on this eBay gives auction. All of the money raised will go to the One Laptop Per Child fund. Donating a laptop costs $199. I hope we can purchase at least one. On our end, we made sure there are enough valuable items to make the box worth it.

 

We will reveal some of the items inside the box over the next few days. For starters, there’s a Collector’s Edition Tron controller for Xbox 360, Disney Epic Mickey paintbrush (it’s really a nunchuck) for Wii, and a Headbanger Chat Headset from PDP.

There may be collector’s items from Japan too…

 

Here’s the link to the auction. The starting bid is $50 and there’s a week on the clock to win the box. Good luck!

      I think you’re kidding, but if someone has real questions about the eBay account I’m happy to answer them. I made it just for this so, of course there isn’t any feedback!

        I’ll leave you feedback if I win >O>!

    Must resist…temptation…and curiosity!

    But then again I don’t have a Wii and I’ve abandoned my Xbox 360 (lol).

    If only there are PS3 goodies…but those “collector’s items from Japan” sounds interesting…

    Why so multiplatform? ;)

    (yeah, I know so it can be as neutral as possible for the winnings)
