You may have already heard of the Star Trek Beyond campaign that Omaze, the company that combines once-in-a-lifetime experiences with charitable campaigns, is putting on. But in case you haven’t, Zoe Saldana (Uhura) and John Cho (Sulu) have beamed in directly from the Starship Enterprise to share just why you should contribute.
By contributing $10 or more to Star Trek: To Boldly Go, you will be automatically entered to win either the grand prize, or to join the Omaze Star Trek Beyond Crew. If you win the grand prize, you and a friend will be flown to Vancouver and put up in a 4-star hotel, go behind the scenes, meet the cast, watch the filming of the latest Star Trek movie, and you’ll even get a walk-on role in the film! If you are one of the six lucky additional crew members, you still get to visit the set, meet the cast, and see the first scenes from the film.
The best part is, that $10 entry fee for the contest supports nine global causes chosen by your favorite Star Trek Beyond cast members. In the video above, John and Zoe have shared a little bit about the charities they’ve chosen: the Koreatown Youth & Community Center, which helps support the community of Koreatown, and Brave Beginnings, an organization that ensures ventilators and essential neonatal equipment for newborns in need. (For more details on the other charities this campaign will benefit, click here.)
All you have to do is enter here for a chance to boldly go where no man (or woman) has gone before — AND help nine great causes. Win/win, we say. This is week six of the campaign and one of your last chances to contribute, so what are you waiting for? Help others live long and prosper.
