What better way for celebrities to raise money for a good cause than by harnessing their own famous name. Fame is exactly what Tom Brady is banking on in his latest efforts to raise money for AIDS research.
The famous NFL quarterback shared a video of himself with his dog encouraging fans to enter a contest with a grand prize of a private football lesson for two from none other than Brady himself. “Wanna hang with Scooby and me?? Thanks to (RED), someone (possibly you?) and a friend will have the chance to come throw the ball around with me [sic],” he added in the caption.
(RED) is a non-profit organization that raises money to help eliminate the spread of AIDS in today’s world. The Tom Brady contest offers fans a variety of packages set at different price points with proceeds going to (RED). The more you spend, the more chances you get to actually win the lesson with Brady—a $10 base donation gets you 100 chances, while a $5,000 donation gets you 50,000 chances to win.
Brady isn’t the only celebrity who’s teaming up with (RED). There’s also the George Clooney experience, where you can make a donation for a chance to share a champagne toast with the Hollywood heartthrob and have him compliment you non-stop for 45 seconds. The package also comes with a paid trip to L.A. and accommodations in a swanky four-star hotel.
If Matt Damon is more your type, (RED) is offering the opportunity to hang out with the actor in the green room before his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Here are a few other very cool prizes you can win by making a donation to the organization:
- Game of Thrones: A behind-the-scenes tour of the show’s set and costume department in Belfast, Ireland
- Steve Aoki: Party with the iconic DJ at his VIP table in Las Vegas’ Hakkasan nightclub, plus a private screening of his horror movie, The Hive.
- Shaquille O’Neal: Star in a personalized holiday photoshoot with the NBA legend, followed by a meal together
- Star Wars: Win four tickets to attend the London or L.A. premiere (and red carpet) of the highly anticipated movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, plus a chance to meet-and-greet with the cast.
