Let’s face it: Fundraising videos — even when they’re for a great cause — can often be a little dry. Still, even the most exciting fundraising video would seem a little boring compared to Avengers: Age Of Ultron star Robert Downey Jr.’s pitch for a new contest to attend the upcoming superhero movie’s red-carpet premiere — and help some kids battling illness in the process.
In the video, Downey introduces a contest run through Omaze that will give donators the opportunity to attend the Age Of Ultron premiere and hang with the franchise star, who promises to “awesome the crap out of you.” (This proclamation is followed by a massive fireball effect that just serves to make the video even more, well… awesome.) All proceeds from the contest go to Julia’s House, a hospice in England for children with terminal conditions.
Anyone wishing to enter the contest can do so on Downey’s Omaze page, which offers various pieces of Age Of Ultron and Avengers swag for different levels of donations, starting at $10 and up.
Not only is Downey’s monologue fairly epic, the winner’s prize is also impressive. Along with the red-carpet premiere experience, the grand prize package includes indoor skydiving, a helicopter tour of L.A., a four star hotel, and a stop at Randy’s Donuts — the local landmark where Tony Stark took a mid-flight break during a memorable scene in Iron Man 2 — with Mr. Stark himself. The contest ends in early April.
