Want to Hang Out with George Clooney at Disneyland? First, Chip in $10 for Sudan Relief
The Cloon, line one ...
Walt Disney Pictures
Last year, George Clooney invited one winner drawn from a pool of folks who donated $10 to South Sudan relief to join him at the premiere of his film The Monuments Men at New York's Ziegfeld Theater. He's doing the same thing May 9 with his new movie Tomorrowland, only the venue has changed to Disneyland.
That's because Brad Bird's Tomorrowland comes from Walt Disney Pictures and the original Tomorrowland in Anaheim came from Walt Disney.
Here's the movie trailer:
Clooney is said to be preparing for his biggest initiative in Africa to date. "We want to follow the money and find out how mass atrocities are funded, who enables them, and what the smart tools are to counter these activities more effectively," he explains in a statement. "Genocide and other human rights crimes are never just spontaneous events."
This is where those donations come in. Give just 10 bucks to his Not On Our Watch charity at Omaze.com/Clooney, and you have the chance to be put up in a 4-star hotel, spend the day at Disneyland, meet Clooney at the Tomorrowland premiere, watch the flock and then attend the exclusive after-party. The last day to enter is May 4 and, oh yes, if the winner is outside SoCal, s/he will be flown in. (I'm sure they'll pony up for a limo if you're within SoCal.)
George Clooney works with partner organizations Not On Our Watch and the Enough Project to prevent genocide and crimes against humanity in areas of urgent crisis across Africa. Omaze, which was founded by writer/filmmakers and friends from college Matt Pohlson and Ryan Cummins, is an online social good platform that gives anyone the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime experiences that also support social missions.
