EA Sports Gives Amazing Gift To 10-Year-Old Lions Fan From Amarillo
The story of Roman, a 10-year-old boy from Amarillo who was cheated out of a video game after winning a contest at a recent Dallas Cowboys game has gone viral. He won a game of musical chairs for which he should have won a brand new Madden video game for PS4.
Well, after the people running the contest (which was NOT Kiss FM 96.9) saw that he was a Detroit Lions fan, they called for a redo that he ended up losing. This did not sit well with people across the country. The people over at EA Sports got wind of this and took redemption into their hands. You can see by the tweet below that Roman is going to have a big smile on his face very soon.
They went above and beyond by not only getting him the game (Madden NFL 15), but also a brand new PS4. They even gave him some other goodies that you can see here at ArcadeSushi.com.
We at Kiss FM also set up a GoFundMe account to see if we could help hook this little boy up with a little something and YOU came up big. I mean really big. The response by our visitors was huge and there has been a total of $2200.00 in just two days! Every penny of this money will go to Roman and it's thanks to all of you who donated.
We'll be posting a follow up when we give Roman his big fat check.
Here's the video that started it all.
