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 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 along with singer Bruno Mars and band Kings of Leon. The actor will offer a prize for one lucky winner and a guest to attend the fest as VIPs. The winner and guest will also meet 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. George Clooney did something similar and raised $1.2 million for his satellite project in Sudan by inviting fans to purchase a $10 raffle ticket to win a date with himself.
