Groupon offers deal to meet Brad Pitt
You read that right! Groupon is offering the fans of the Hollywood star the deal of a lifetime: by donating just 10 dollars to the charity Make It Right, through Groupon, you can win an epic package that includes VIP tickets to the charity’s gala in New Orleans and the chance of rubbing elbows with Brad Pitt.
Groupon is making an offer that you won’t find everyday on their website: the experience of a lifetime at the Make It Right Foundation gala in New Orleans, taking place on May 17. All you need to do is enter Groupon’s website and make a contribution of $10 to the charity founded by Pitt. Then you wait until April 29, the last day of the offer, and see if you are the winner.
The prize includes plane tickets to New Orleans, a two-night hotel stay, a private tour of Make It Right’s 9th Ward site, two VIP tickets to the gala and, of course, “a chance for group meet-and-greet with Brad Pitt”. Groupon states that it won’t promise the winner will actually be around Pitt, as “meet-and-greet with Brad Pitt is contingent on the availability of all parties.”
If you’ve got loaded pockets and don’t want to stay in line for the winning, then shell out $25,000 and the “epic deal” is yours. Of the sum, the group discount service will only keep 10 percent, giving the rest of $22,500 to Pitt’s charity.
“Make it Right” was founded by the 50-year-old actor in 2007, with the purpose of offering eco-friendly and affordable housing for those in need. Over time the non-profit foundation has had several celebrities involved in its projects, including Ellen DeGeneres, Kanye West, Drew Brees, Aziz Ansari, Rihanna, Seal, Oprah Winfrey, Mike Holmes and, of course, Angelina Jolie.
