The holidays are a time of giving; for helping others and taking care of the less fortunate. This year, a handful of celebrities are putting a fun spin on the spirit of the season by participating in a fundraising competition.

Mozilla Firefox has lined up 12 celebrities to compete in a fundraising challenge. The winner of the one-month competition will receive a $25,000 award for the charity of his or her choice. Participating celebs include actors Zooey Deschanel, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd and Jason Bateman, model and activist Christy Turlington, superstar Barbra Streisand and more.

Each celebrity’s cause has already received $5,000, and the grand prize will be awarded to the charity that raises the most by January 11th.

Deschanel’s charity of choice is the Innocence Project, which aids people wrongly convicted of crimes and imprisoned on death row. Hill is supporting Nothing But Nets, an organization that provides mosquito nets in Africa.

According to the Huffington Post, each cause “is raising funds on the Crowdrise platform and is offering weekly prizes and giveaways to entice donors to get involved.”

And as for Mozilla, the company says that the contest is entirely selfless. The website states, “We’ve brought together thousands of people to build a better web. Not for profit, but for good. This holiday season, help us take it one step further.”

For one lucky charity, this will be a very happy holiday, indeed!
