Do you want to appear in “Star Trek Beyond”? Omaze and the “Star Trek” film franchise have partnered together to create “The Star Trek: To Boldly Go” Campaign to give a lucky winner the chance to appear in the upcoming film as well as support the cast’s selection of nine global causes, each of which will receive equal portions of the money raised by the campaign.
The campaign is running live now and will continue until 11:59 p.m. PST Sept. 1. To enter, visit the Omaze fundraising platform and make a $10 contribution, which will enter you into the drawing. The grand prize winner and a guest will be able to fly to to Vancouver and stay in a 4-star hotel, visit the “Star Trek Beyond” set, have fun with the cast, and transform into their on-screen character by the film’s costume and makeup department for their walk-on role.
Even though there’s one grand prize, there are tons of other prizes up for grabs! Six other winners will be selected randomly throughout the campaign to create the honorary “Star Trek: To Boldly Go” crew. The crew will be able to travel to Vancouver, visit the closed set, meet the cast and crew, and be some of the first in the world to see scenes from the film.
Ryan Cummins, the co-founder and co-CEO of Omaze, said how excited the organization is to provide fans with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “We are proud to give fans the chance to live out their dream experience while simultaneously helping nine great causes,” he said. “By allowing anyone to enter for just $10, we are seeing the power our community has in making an impact around the world.”
The money Omaze raises from the campaign with go towards these nine global causes:
Also, fans who donate more than $10 can receive perks for their generosity. These donors can receive limited edition prizes, such as posters, t-shirts, a red shirt autographed by the cast, a replica of the Captain’s chair and an advanced private screening of “Star Trek Beyond.”
If all of this didn’t convince you to enter, then maybe the cast themselves can convince you in their own words. Cho, Pegg, Pine, Quinto, Saldana, Yelchin, Elba and Urban recorded a message on the Enterprise bridge set.
