Read this story by Vic Carucci at nfl.com about Je’Rod Cherry. Great story. Cherry was a relatively anonymous player for the Patriots earlier this decade and helped them win 3 Super Bowls. The short of it is that he has decided to donate what to him may be his most valuable material possession: his first Super Bowl ring. It is for a raffle prize. The raffle will benefit several charities that are important to him. It is already estimated that his doing this has helped raise more than $100,000. All you need to put in is $10 for a chance to win a Super Bowl ring. He chose not to go the auction route even though he knows he could have generated huge money for the charities, because by going with the raffle, anyone (not only the super rich) who can put in $10 can have a crack at winning the ring.
This guy may be the opposite of the recently reinstated Pacman Jones.
