Fans can join actor Brad Pitt at his second annual Make It Right fest in New Orleans, Louisiana, by making a donation of $10 to his housing charity. The festival is reportedly said to take place in May. Pitt has teamed up with website Groupon to help boost donations to Make It Right Foundation, which provides environment-friendly homes to people affected by Hurricane Katrina, reports contactmusic.com.
On May 17, Pitt will host a charity event in New Orleans along with singer Bruno Mars and band Kings of Leon. The actor will be offering a prize package for one lucky winner and a guest to attend the fest as VIPs. The winner and guest will also get to meet with the actor. Their travel and accommodation needs will also be taken care of. Groupon has agreed to donate a $1,00,000 cheque to the foundation.
The Troy star isn’t the first celebrity to come up with such a prize. George Clooney raised $1.2 million for his satellite project in Sudan in January by inviting fans to purchase a $10 raffle ticket to win a date with himself. IANS
