Listen up and let me hit you with some knowledge! Everyone knows that, if you can dodge a wrench then, you can dodge a ball but, did you know that you could enter for a chance to play in the most epic game of dodgeball ever? And it’s all for a great cause!
Ben Stiller announced on Wednesday that he and the cast of the movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story have teamed up with Omaze in an effort to raise money for the Stiller Foundation.
The Stiller Foundation was founded by none other than Ben Stiller (who plays White Goodman in the movie Dodgeball) in an effort to help improve educational opportunities for children, particularly in Haiti. According to the foundation website, “Based on the idea that all children deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential, Ben Stiller founded the Stiller Foundation in 2010. The Foundation seeks to promote the well-being of children worldwide through initiatives that support education.”
Stiller reprised his role as White Goodman in order to make the announcement in the hilarious video below. As White is explaining that YOU could play dodgeball on team Globo Gym, he’s interrupted by Peter La Fleur (Vince Vaughn), Kate Veatch (Christine Taylor), and Justin (Justin Long) who counter offer with a chance to play on team Average Joe’s. White calls for reinforcements from his Purple Cobras team and he is then joined by Me’Shell (Jamal Duff), Blazer (Brandon Molale) and, of course, Fran Stalinofskivitchdavitovichsky (Missi Pyle).
Once these old foes meet, the game is on but, you can actually be a part of it! By donating through Omaze, you can receive some super cool prizes and be entered for the ultimate prize, a chance to play dodgeball with Ben Stiller! According to the Omaze site, the grand prize includes the following:
- Dodge, duck, dip, dive, dodge with Ben Stiller and his friends (spandex not guaranteed)
- Take a team picture in your custom dodgeball jersey
- Celebrate your victory (or wallow in defeat) over pizza with Ben after the game
- Get flown out and put up in a 4-star hotel
A mere $10 donation will get you 100 entries for the ultimate prize and you get to support the amazing Stiller Foundation. Sounds like a win, win deal to us.
