There are so many reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence, aka J-Law: her enviable movie career, haircuts, bold statements about privacy. Now we can add passionate advocate for justice to the list. She’s stepping up and using her large platform to help end political corruption. To help fund Represent.Us, the anti–political corruption organization she’s supporting, the actress announced that she is offering up a chance to taste wine with her in California.
She opens with: “You wanna stop political corruption… and drink a tonna wine?”
Yes! Yes, in fact we do. Please tell us how, Jen.
That video, which has her guessing if a description is a wine review or movie review, is pretty much as adorable as Jen herself, was it not? Sigh. We heart you, Jen!
To be able to be in Jen’s exclusive company and become besties and braid each other’s hair as you talk passionately about politics and get drunk together is a pretty simple process.
Go to omaze.com. Enter to win by donating from $25 up to $5,000. The more you donate, the your chances of seeing, sipping and swirling with Jen go up. Not only that, you get stuff back. Some really cool stuff, like Shepard Fairey posters and limited edition t-shirts. Also, while you’re on the site, search around. Omaze is a newish start-up that raises money for good causes by auctioning off ideas and people (lotso celebs). Kind of like a silent auction, but you get to bid from the comfort of your pajamas in your own living room.
If you win this wine with Jen date, you’ll get flown out to California and put up in a 4-star hotel. But you must be 21 or older to enter, ’cause you know, laws and such. And you’ll want to bone up on Represent.Us so you’ll have lots to chat about. The cliff notes version of the organization is that it brings together conservatives, progressives and everyone in-between to fix America’s broken political system. All across America, volunteers are working together to pass state and local anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money and fix our broken elections. Represent.Us is building an America where the highest quality ideas, not the biggest spenders, determine political outcomes; where the most qualified people run for office and win; where elections are competitive and equitable, and our leaders represent us. Your donation will help Represent.Us get closer to achieving its vision of an America where the government represents the people, and works for you and your family instead of special interests and lobbyists.
So what are you waiting for? Head to the site and enter. Even if you don’t win, your entry and dollars will go to help benefit Represent.Us. We can all drink to that!
