Randy Pitchford, Gearbox CEO, has decided to sell his loud (read: sappy) shirts to a charity for a reason. This one appeared out of nowhere and attracted quite a lot of negative comments, causing Gearbox's official Twitter account to hide replies.
Gearbox's CEO may be able to raise funds for its own scholarship program.
The loud shirts worn by our head honcho may have been noticed by Gearbox enthusiasts over the years.
Randy is auctioning off dozens of garments, all proceeds going toward a developer scholarship.
Blind bidding is open until September 9th!

The name of the charity isn't mentioned in the tweet nor the auction site. Folks over at GamesRadar discovered that Gearbox has its own scholarship program and that the proceeds might go towards it. There are three kinds of scholarship awards given by the company, two of which are valued at $500 and one is valued at $1,500, according to the official description.
Randy Pitchfords shirts are certainly loud, but quite a few people are surprised by the auction. Each lot of shirts is valued at $400, and there are 47 lots in total.
