During the Coronavirus, celebrities all over the country have come together to help provide for families in need and frontline workers. The All In challenge allows people to bid on experiences from having lunch with Barry Bonds to flying on AirDrake and spending the evening "partying with Drizzy."
Patriots owner, Robert Kraft has joined the cause auctioning off his fifth Super Bowl ring. The All In website states that "the winning bidder will be flown to Boston on Robert Kraft's private plane from anywhere in the continental U.S. and taken to Gillette Stadium, where they will receive the Super Bowl ring from Kraft himself in the team's trophy room." The bidding for his Super Bowl ring started at $75,000 and has now been increased to $1,000,000.
Robert Kraft spoke about his decision to auction of his fifth Super Bowl ring.
"What could I do that would be special? I've been thinking about it for weeks," Kraft said in a video posted on social media. "I finally thought about our experience in Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons. We were down 28-3 [in the third quarter] and had 99.6% [odds] to lose. And we came back, and we won. And I thought about what is going on at this time and wanted to give something of extreme value in support of our health care workers. So I thought it would be good to give this ring, our fifth Super Bowl win, because it showed how we came back."
Here is the full video of Kraft announcing his auction.
This is such an awesome contribution from Kraft. Most, if not all news about Coronavirus is negative. Whether it's more people being infected or losing their lives to this virus or people fighting over the country opening up, it is always negative. The All In Challenge is bringing some positive to the situation. The Super Bowl against the Falcons is my favorite Super Bowl win because I rememberer tension in my house and as the Patriots were being blown out. So tension that the people there didn't even want to blink wrong without fear of maybe getting scolded. For the Pats to come back and win made it that much sweeter. I can't imagine that he doesn't hold that ring with just as much gratitude as anyone else. For him to auction it off is amazing to me.
