You Can Win Two Nintendo Switch Consoles While Donating to COVID-19 Relief
By Alvin Ward
Since its debut in March 2017, the Nintendo Switch has been one of the most popular video game consoles on the market, selling more than 52 million units worldwide in just three years. But with that type of success comes scarcity—and if you’re looking to pick up your own Switch, well, good luck.
The console has seen supply problems for the past few months due to the coronavirus pandemic, and used and third-party Switches are selling for well over the sticker value online. But with a little luck on your side, you could win two brand-new Switch consoles, thanks to this sweepstakes from Omaze.
Your first entry into the sweepstakes is free, but if you want to increase your chances, you can donate $10 for 100 entries, $25 for 250, $50 for 1000, or $100 for 2000. Those donations will then go to support International Medical Corps’s Epidemic Response Team—made up of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals—in their worldwide efforts against the coronavirus outbreak. This support includes everything from essential training for healthcare providers and equipment deployment to the administering of medicine and community outreach.
Along with the two Switch consoles, the winner will also receive two Ring Fit Adventure bundles, two Mario Kart wheels, and $600 to spend on more games. The deadline to enter is June 16, with the winner being announced on or around July 1. You can enter for yourself here.
