I really like that folks in Hollywood are starting to use fandom to support charitable causes. We saw it last year with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and now Robert Downey Jr. is encouraging fans to donate to Julia’s House for a chance to win an impressive grand prize.
Fans who donate $10 to Julia’s House will be entered to win an unforgettable experience in L.A. From the press release:
You’ll kick things off with breakfast at the iconic Randy’s Donuts before launching into an action-packed day including a helicopter ride over the Hollywood sign, indoor skydiving, and a custom gown or tux fitting before meeting Robert Downey Jr. himself for an epic motorcade arrival at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. And yes…there will be caviar.
That’s right: You’ll be able to say you got caviar for $10. That’s what you’ll brag about. Also, is it just me or does indoor skydiving seem somehow more terrifying that outdoor skydiving?
You and a friend get all of this along with flights, 4-star hotel, and transportation. And even if you don’t win, you still donated to a worthy cause.
Also, like other Omaze promotions, you get more entries and other rewards based on the size of your donation. Click here to give to a worthwhile cause, and you may just get an awesome trip in exchange.

Here’s more on Julia’s House:
Julia’s House is a children’s hospice charity dedicated to helping life-limited children and their families. The nurses and caregivers at Julia’s house provide life-changing support for parents and their children both in the hospice and in their own homes. The majority of those children are unlikely to live beyond the age of 18, but thankfully Julia’s House is there for them year-round, offering emergency respite and overnight care during treatment and offering emotional and practical support at the end of a child’s life.
