Rick_NickelHarrison to donate a nickel for every download with a goal of 1 Million downloads

Rick Harrison, co-founder of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop and star of HISTORY’s “Pawn Stars” and “Pawnography,” announced today that he will personally donate a nickel to the Epilepsy Foundation for every free download of his new app, “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge.”

Harrison wanted to kick off this fundraiser as he gears up for the 9th Annual National Walk for Epilepsy he is participating in on April 11 in Washington, D.C. He is a national spokesperson for the Epilepsy Foundation. Harrison is hopeful he can gain 1 Million downloads, or the equivalent of a $50,000 donation towards research, by the end of the month as part of what he affectionately refers to as “my appilepsy campaign” in his on-going support of the foundation.

“I have a passion for three things: The Epilepsy Foundation and the work it does for those with the condition, trivia and knowledge of all kinds and making money.  So this campaign really allows me to marry all of those together for a great cause,” said Harrison.

In “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge,” a speed trivia game, players encounter thousands of questions in upwards of 15 categories ranging from scholarly to pop culture, including many brain-bending questions personally included by Harrison. The game starts players at the front entrance of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, greeted by Harrison who serves as a mentor throughout the game. Players are challenged to answer ten trivia questions within a set time period. Level to level throughout the game, players will encounter the likes of the Old Man, Corey and Chumlee, offering advice and opportunities for level advancement.

Like many app-based games, “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge” is free to download and play. What makes “Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge” exceptionally different: players can also earn “gold coins” as reward for completing various levels of the game. These virtual coins can be collected then exchanged for swag such as T-shirts, key chains and other items and one-of-a-kind experiences from the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

“Rick Harrison’s Trivia Challenge” is available now on Facebook, the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for free. For more information, visit www.rickstrivia.com.

When a person has two or more unprovoked seizures, they have epilepsy, which affects nearly 3 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. This year, another 150,000 people in our country will be diagnosed with epilepsy. Despite all available treatments, four out of 10 people with epilepsy continue to experience uncontrolled seizures while many more experience less than optimal seizure control.

The Epilepsy Foundation, a national non-profit with 48 affiliated organizations throughout the United States, has led the fight against seizures since 1968. The Foundation is an unwavering ally for individuals and families impacted by epilepsy and seizures. The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to stop seizures and sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy through efforts including education, advocacy and research to accelerate ideas into therapies. The Foundation works to ensure that people with seizures have the opportunity to live their lives to their fullest potential.

    Thanks for helping my daughter

  5. Thanks Rick. I was diagnosed with a seizure disorder in 1981 and they are controlled by taking Dilantin. I have seizures about every 9 years. Last year I had 5 . I had a CT scan and they discovered massive tumors in my brain from breast cancer. I am going through treatment since September 2014. I have stage 4 so I will never be rid of these tumors. But I fight and have tons of support.
