If you’re looking to get a sneak peek at Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (opens in new tab), take heed. Star Lord himself is here to take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the set, and introduce you to some friends. He’s also got a favor to ask, but I’ll let him tell you about it:
Still not sure what’s going on? My turn to explain. Chris Pratt has partnered with Omaze, an organization that helps funnel money toward designated charities by enticing would-be donors with fabulous prizes. In this case, by donating (opens in new tab) as little as $10, you’ll be entered into a raffle, the grand prize of which is an in-person tour of the Milano (Star Lord’s ship) and hanging out with Pratt. Your money also goes toward helping the Lake Stevens Boys and Girls Club, which seeks to create a positive and safe space for teens in Snohomish County, Washington.
Much like Kickstarter, donating more cash gets you better rewards. Donating $25, for example, gets you more entries in the raffle, but also a digital thank you card from Pratt. Other swag includes exclusive t-shirts, posters, and a portable cassette player with Awesome Mix Vol. 1 signed by Pratt – though that’ll set you back $2,500. But hey, such is the price for doing good deeds and meeting Star Lord.
