If you’ve ever dreamed of meeting Hollywood heartthrobs Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, today is your lucky day! For only $10, you can enter to win a trip to Los Angeles to hang out with the two stars in person. And, even if you’re not the lucky grand prize winner, you’ll still be helping to support two great causes.

This hangout session from heaven was made possible by the charitable organization Omaze, which raises money for social missions by putting together almost too-good-to-be-true packages for adoring fans. This time, the charity has something special in store. According to Omaze, “[y]ou and your BFF will be flown to Los Angeles to hang out with Ben and Matt at an exclusive Hollywood event as their personal VIP guests! You’ll mingle with the stars and learn what it’s like to act, write, win Oscars, and just be awesome.”

Proceeds from the contest will go to two worthy international causes – the Eastern Congo Initiative and Water.org. Omaze was excited to share some info on the two chosen charities. “The Eastern Congo Initiative envisions an eastern Congo vibrant with abundant opportunities for economic and social development, where a robust civil society can flourish. Water.org pioneers innovative, community-driven and market-based solutions to ensure all people have access to safe water and sanitation; giving women hope, children health and communities a future.”

The Eastern Congo Initiative is a cause near and dear to Ben Affleck’s heart. He spearheaded the organization himself and has been involved with charitable work in the Congo for many years.

It always seems to come back to a confused juror deciding when animal use is justified.
