LOS ANGELES - “Star Wars” fans have the chance to attend the premiere of “The Force Awakens” in Los Angeles or London. According to a video released today, director J.J. Abrams announced the campaign in partnership with Omaze which gives anyone who donates $10 charitable donation the chance to the film's premiere.
“A year and a half ago, we launched production with a brand new charitable initiative called ‘Star Wars: Force for Change’ that aims to inspire all of us to make a positive difference in the world,” Abrams said in the video now on YouTube. “And since then, with your help, we’ve raised nearly 7 million dollars to support UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children around the world.”
Two grand prize winners will be chosen and will be allowed to bring three guests. They will receive flights and a stay at a four-star hotel for the red carpet premiere in either Los Angeles or London and have the opportunity to meet the cast, walk the red carpet, watch the film and attend the movie premiere's official after party.
The proceeds for the campaign will benefit 15 different charities chosen by the cast and filmmakers. For the list of charities, visit www.omaze.com/starwars.
