Online dating can be exhausting, like searching for a needle in the haystack or a diamond in the rough or some other equally frustrating metaphor. But this particular online Valentine’s Day contest, put on by fundraiser/dream fulfiller Omaze.com, has just one diamond: Idris Elba. And he wants to give you the Valentine’s date of your life.
Your eyes do not deceive you; you could win a Valentine’s date with British actor and super hunk, Idris Elba. Believe it!
One lucky winner (and a friend, if they’re into it) will be flown out, put up in a four-star hotel and accompany Mr. Elba himself to one of his favourite restaurants for “delicious conversation and a great meal.”
Like the rest of Omaze’s initiatives, it’s for a good cause. The contest—though it does have a free entry option—is raising money for the W.E. Can Lead, an education and leadership development program for young girls across Africa. They create safe spaces for girls to learn, grow and build the skills needed to become leading members of their communities.
For your chance to win the big prize, just enter your email on this page. You can then increase your chances 100 fold by donating just $10. Or by 500 times for donating $50! And if you’re feeling even more generous, go for a bigger donation—you could also win an Idris t-shirt (wicked cool), a signed headshot (swoon), tickets to the premiere of his upcoming film Dark Tower and more. It’s a pretty playful way to raise funds and awareness, and it makes us love Idris even more.
Go ahead and share this with your friends, but only if they promise to make you their plus one should they win.
