We’ve seen opportunities to support charities in exchange for chances to win various prizes in the past. Omaze, for example, has run many campaigns like that over the years. Prizeo runs similar charity campaigns, and one of their latest opportunities will be of particular interest to fans of Rick and Morty.
In it, you can donate as little as $10 and have a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles to hang out with Rick and Morty creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, tour the studio where the show is made, and, perhaps most exciting of all, be drawn into an actual episode of the hit animated comedy. And in the process, you’ll be supporting some great causes.
You can find all of the details below.
First, here’s a message from the folks who make Rick and Morty:
Wubba lubba dub dub, friends!
At the end of Season 3 of Rick and Morty, there were some important questions left unanswered â€” Is Evil Morty coming back? Whatever happened to Morty Jr.? Howâ€™s Mr. Poopybutthole doing? The gag clauses in our contracts prevent us from sharing any details. But letâ€™s just say itâ€™s really weird and about to get a whole lot weirder. Want to see for yourself?
For only a $10 donation, you and a friend could win a trip to Los Angeles, meet creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, and tour the Rick and Morty production studio. Then, we’ll get you drawn into a future episode! Youâ€™ll also get to take home a Rick and Morty merch bundle! Airfare and hotel are included as well!
Your donation supports NEXT for AUTISM and Bergen Countyâ€™s United Way, helping to transform the national landscape of services for people with autism. If you want to give more, youâ€™ll get extra entries and score some cool Rick and Morty rewards!
Itâ€™s time to get schwifty in here! We canâ€™t wait to meet you and a friend!
â€”Rick & Morty Team
And here’s some info on the charities you would be supporting:
ABOUT NEXT FOR AUTISM
NEXT for AUTISM transforms the national landscape of services for people with autism by strategically designing, launching, and supporting innovative programs. We believe that individuals with autism have the potential to live fulfilling, productive lives when supported by excellent services and connected to their communities. We continually ask, whatâ€™s next for people on the autism spectrum?
While many organizations engage in advocacy or fund scientific research, NEXT for AUTISM addresses the needs of people with autism and their families across the country, right now. We create and support exceptional educational, clinical, and vocational programs, all cutting-edge, all with an eye towards affecting fundamental shifts in current approaches to autism services.
ABOUT BERGEN COUNTY’S UNITED WAY
We believe everyone, regardless of perceived ability, deserves the freedom to make the basic choices that define their lives. And the most basic choice any of us can make is where we want to live.
Unfortunately, in New Jersey, there is a critical shortage of homes people can afford. This acute lack of housing has is a major reason the state carries one of the highest housing costs in the nation, and it is restricting the independence of hard-working families, aging adults, and individuals with developmental disabilities.
Donations to this campaign through Bergen Countyâ€™s United Way (BCUW) will benefit Prevail NJ, which offers alternative residential options to adults with autism to combat the severe lack of housing available to these individuals. BCUW is currently working closely with Prevail NJ and the Institute for Educational Achievement to open Onward, Prevail NJâ€™s first home in Northern NJ for adults with autism. At Onward, comprehensive skilled intervention services will be delivered in a beautifully designed and extremely functional residence, allowing the adults opportunities for additional skill development, independence, and a fulfilling home life. Prevail NJ believes that all adults with autism have a right to a home of their own and the freedom to experience all that their communities have to offer. Prevail NJ will change the future of residential programs for adults with autism, one home at a time, ensuring that adults with autism live with dignity and prevail over the challenges they face every day.
In addition to earning chances to win with your donations, many of the options also include an added bonus such as a replica portal gun, a t-shirt, a Funko POP! figure, and more.
You can head over to Prizeo now if interested in donating some coin to these causes and earning some chances to win.
After that, we continue the long wait for the release of Rick and Morty season four later this year.
