LUNCH WITH GEORGE CLOONEY (REALLY)!


I am amazed and enthralled with this Utterly Fab company out West, called OMAZE!
They actually give away a chance at Experiences like Hanging out with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck! A role in the MOVIE STAR WARS VII! Play Cricket on the Set of Downton Abbey with the CAST! Ride in an RV with Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad, etc. etc. etc... Yes, every prize is staggeringly swoon worthy! And, best of all with NO STRINGS ATTACHED and ALL for Worthy Causes.

I have been in the running for some of these Wow-factor experiences (like lunch with George) and its thrilling. I may not have won (yet), but, I think it's the MOST FUN and EXCITEMENT ten dollars can buy!  Not to mention the money raised goes to very good causes like UNICEF, Women's Cancer Programs, and, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. They have set it up perfectly so we are helping each other.

Let's be real.....somebody is going to win. It could be me. And, it certainly can be YOU!
 
          In their own words (the two savvy geniuses who came up with all this)..

 A little while back, we went to a benefit that Magic Johnson hosted for the Boys & Girls Club of America, where he auctioned off the chance to sit with him courtside at a Lakers game and join him for dinner after. We could barely contain ourselves. We are die hard Laker fans and Magic was our childhood hero. Hanging with him for a night would literally be a dream come true.
But this dream was not to be. As a couple of broke grad students, we could only watch helplessly as the bids escalated until the experience ultimately cleared for $15,000.
Driving home we couldn’t let it go. Why should life’s most amazing experiences only be available to a select few? And worse, how could a prize which, in our minds, was priceless only raise $15,000 for the Boys & Girls Club?
And that’s when a simple idea hit us. What if we made these same types of opportunities available online, and for a $10 donation everyone could have a chance at winning? We could help generate significantly more money and awareness for deserving causes, and all people could share the chance to live out dream experiences.
And that’s how Omaze was born.
Picture yourself as a REAL Jedi!

They should offer "Dinner with Renee". The lucky person would leave that dinner feeling on top of the world! You have a way of lifting people's spirits.

It sounds great! But usually these things descend into greed, just like Boston's One Fund--their initial promise, which everyone forgets, was to collect money and disperse it within a year, not be greedy b---ds and suck high salaries, get free leased cars and rent posh offices while making the thing hang on for several years, like the spring-up charities after 9-11 did. Sadly, the One Fund succumbed to the same greed and won't give up the gravy train.

What eventually happens is the amount that goes to the charity shrinks from 80% to 50% to 10%--the latter is the percentage the places that take automobile donations actually give to the named charity--and the celebrities get wise and avoid it. Pretty soon their offerings are Donny Bonaduce will come to your party and an autograph from Cher.

That said, at first there will be some great offerings and possibly 50% will find its way to a charity. Do it not because it's a charity but as a gamble for the prize.
