What you see above may look like just any painted custom Groper figure, but there's something special about Eddie Ortega's custom. It's being auctioned off to benefit the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., and 100 percent off the profits from the sale will go to the United Way of Western Connecticut. Triplikid's little guy has been painted in a very bright color scheme, and Triplikid himself is very supportive of this effort. That's in no small part because he lives near Newtown and has young children of his own.
To bid on the one-off piece, visit the eBay auction page for it. You have until about 9:30 a.m. Eastern on Christmas Day to get your bids in. Right now, the price is at about US$41 in case you were wondering, and if you'd like to give directly, you can do so through the United Way of Western Connecticut's special fund for the shooting's victims.
