Robert Kraft is doing his part.

The Patriots owner -- who already has assisted relief efforts during this pandemic -- is using one of his prized possessions to raise a significant amount of money to help those in need during this COVID-19 crisis. As part of the "All-In Challenge" Kraft has offered to auction off his Super Bowl LI ring to help supply food for people in need during these coronavirus-induced trying times.

The winning bidder will also be allowed to visit the Patriots' facility, receiving the ring directly from Kraft. The owner has also volunteered to send his private plane anywhere in the United States to pick up the winner for the tour and presentation.

"What could I do that would be special? I’ve been thinking about it for weeks," Kraft said. "I finally thought about our experience in Super Bowl LI, against the Atlanta Falcons. We were down 28-3 (in the third quarter) and had 99.6 percent (odds) to lose. And we came back and we won. “And I thought about what is going on at this time, and wanted to give something of extreme value in support of our health-care workers. So I thought it would be good to give this ring, our fifth Super Bowl win, because it showed how we came back."

At this writing, the current high bid stood at $330,000.
