Do It. Buy a raffle ticket to win Ron Artest's chamionship ring.

When the Lakers won the NBA Championship last season, it seemed like no one was more thrilled than Ron Artest. The quirky forward has become infamous for his strange but endearing acceptance speech, and that all makes his next move even cooler.

Artest has set up a "Win My Bling" raffle, where he will be giving away his actual championship ring, along with an all-expenses-paid trip to meet him and sit at premium seats at a Laker game. You read that right -- he's giving away his ring, you can meet him, and you'll be sitting at awesome seats at a Laker game. (And you'll also receive a cash prize of $13,000 to balance the tax liabilities that come with the prize. All the bases are covered!)

So what do you have to do to enter the raffle? Tickets are only $2 each. Two bucks. It's a minimum purchase of 5 tickets, but that only comes up to $10. You'll be entering this raffle for $10, and have 5 chances to win this amazing prize! And yep, the money in the raffle all goes to XCel University, which supports mental health awareness, so it'll all be charitable.

Is there a downside to this? Buy your raffle tickets now! The drawing will take place on Dec. 25, 2010, so you still have a lot of time to enter (as often as you want!). Good luck!
