Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s fans have just been given a good reason to donate to charity. According to a Jan 30 story published by E! Online, the pair has partnered with Omaze to give a fan the experience of a lifetime. Omaze is a well known charity that has earned a reputation for giving anyone the chance to win a life changing experience.

The rules of the contest are extremely simple. Individuals must donate $10 to be eligible to win. According to sources, the winner will be chosen by a random drawing, and they will be flown to Hollywood to hang out with the Hollywood power duo. The trip will be all expenses paid, and the lucky winner will join Damon and Affleck for a day of acting, writing and hanging out.

For this particular charity event Omaze is donating the proceeds to Eastern Congo Initiative and Water.org. These two organizations are working to address many of the problems that are plaguing the African continent. While the Eastern Congo Initiative is geared towards creating opportunities for those living in the Congo and surrounding areas, Water.org is striving to create solutions for addressing the growing water crisis that is afflicting many developing communities.

By donating $10, you can help solve these issues and maybe win a day of hanging out with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. That sounds like a pretty good win-win.
