Chris Pratt tours the set of 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' to entice fans to enter a contest to spend a day on set. This is part of a charity effort from a company called Omaze which frequently offers a chance to win a cool experience to encourage entries that raise money for a charity, in this case, Lake Stevens Boys and Girls Club. 

The video description provided a link and an explanation of what kind of prize the winner will receive:

All donations of $10 or more help the Lake Stevens Boys and Girls Club build a new teen center.

This past weekend I played through Pokémon Yellow with the goal of completing the Pokédex in 24 hours or less without using a cheating device or using glitches (other than the Mew glitch). I'm no famous speedrunner or anything, I just wanted to play the game as it was meant to be played, though I did use Pokémon Stadium to increase the speed (in my opinion, using all available legitimate resources) because I would also have to play through Red and Blue to get the mons unobtainable in Yellow. It's a good thing I did too because it took me a whopping 23 hours and 40 minutes to catch all 151 Pokémon and we managed to raise $380 for the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital. However, it's not too late to donate and help out some kids in need (and be entered in a raffle for some cool Poképrizes!) All info is here. Thanks guys

Kids from both Big Brothers/Big Sisters of New York, and SAY were surprised with a special screening of Marvel's Ant-Man hsoted by the hero himself, Paul Rudd. SAY was a personal choice for Rudd, as he's been on the board since 2007. It's a charity that provides speech therapy and after school programs to children who suffer from stuttering.

He made sure the kids stayed for both end credit sequences, because you don't want a miss a thing.

The cast of Star Trek Beyond has teamed up with charity organization Omaze to offer one fan (and their guest) a walk on role on Star Trek Beyond. Six slightly less lucky winners will get to visit the set to see the actors do their thing. A $10 donation gets you 100 chances, while a $100 donation will get you 1,000 chances and a t-shirt. For your chance to win, check out the campaign here.

JJ Abrams offered a similar opportunity with Star Wars: Force for Change, which raised 4.26 million dollars for Unicef.

With any luck, a trip to the Star Trek set will look a little like this:

Dave Goldblatt, a Facebook employee from San Francisco, California is one of two people who donated $20,000 to George RR Martin's Prizeo campaign benefiting a wolf sanctuary in New Mexico. His prize? He'll be turned into a character and killed in Martin's upcoming book. Speaking to ABC News, Goldblatt said "I'm just lucky enough to be in a position to do this. Obviously, the money is going to charity, so it's an added bonus. I didn't immediately seek to help wolf sanctuaries, but the more I read about the charities, I learned it was a worthwhile cause." Goldblatt has chosen to be Valyrian, because he thinks they're cool and hopes to see more of them in the series.
