Mark Hamill Surprises Star Wars Fans

Last month we saw the announcement of another Force for Change collaboration between Star Wars and Omaze in which fans would have the chance to win the ultimate Star Wars experience while also supporting a great cause.

Now, just in time for May the 4th, a bonus prize for that contest has been revealed: the chance to have lunch with Mark Hamill in LA and see The Last Jedi before it opens to the public in a special pre-screening.

To help promote the contest and announce the bonus prize, Hamill recently shocked a handful of unsuspecting superfans when he showed up as their surprise co-star while re-creating iconic scenes from the movies. You can see their reactions in the video below, followed by all the details.

Valentines Day charitable gift ideas

Valentine’s Day is almost here. And if you haven’t acquired some gifts to give yet, then chances are you need some help. So here are some lovely stress-free last-minute charitable gifts you can give this Valentine’s Day. Even if you already have items to give, it’s always nice to add something extra that can help others.

See below for our list of Last-Minute Charitable Gift Ideas For Valentine’s Day.

Here’s what you do: Make a charitable donation online — in some instances you can do so in the recipient’s name — then print out an e-card or other message offered. You can add this to an existing gift or give it on its own. If you want, you can run a Walgreens or CVS (some kind of pharmacy type place), grab a tiny box of chocolates and/or tiny teddy bear, put it together with the charitable gift message/print-out into a pretty gift bag (add tissue paper if possible to pretty it up), which will make the presentation lovely and not make it seem like you waited till the last minute.

Oh, and these are tax-deductible! And you’ll be helping others, while giving the gift. So, it’s a win all around.

GISHWHES Interview: Supernatural’s Misha Collins’ International Scavenger Hunt!
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  

GISHWHES Header

Supernatural‘s Misha Collins (Castiel) is about as far from his stern-faced character as you can get. When he isn’t busy trailing and bailing the Winchester boys through and out of danger, he’s busy organizing and promoting the biggest bucket of international fun ever. Don’t believe me? Just ask Guinness!

G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S., which stands for “Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen,” is a worldwide scavenger hunt, where teams try to check as many items off the list as they can… a list made up of whatever Collins & friends warped minds can think of. Some of the items have been: cover yourself in whipped cream and give out hugs, make a portrait of Jensen Ackles out of Skittles, and dress up in clothing made of food. I recently got to speak with g.i.s.h.w.h.e.s. founder and crazy person, Misha Collins, right after his live Facebook sign-up drive, to talk about his unique event.

Check out the interview and the g.i.s.h.w.h.e.s. trailer below.

Harrison Ford Surprises Star Wars Fans

Omaze has done some great work with the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises to bring a whole lot of money to various charities. The most recent collaboration for a chance to win a walk on role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought in over $4 million dollars, so it makes perfect sense for them to keep the donation party going on behalf of those who need help.

A new collaboration with Omaze is underway that will see someone win a chance to meet the cast of The Force Awakens at the premiere of the movie. And to announce this, they decided to have a little fun and have star Harrison Ford show up and surprise Star Wars fans via webcam to great results. You can read more and watch the video below.

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Remembers Leonard Nimoy (Video)

Leonard Nimoy - Mr. Spock

Back in July we found out that Star Trek Beyond, the third entry in the rebooted Star Trek movie franchise, was doing a contest for a chance to win a role in the movie (similar to what former Trek director J.J. Abrams and company did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens) all in the name of charity.

That contest is in its last week, and to make the final stretch special it was decided to dedicate the week to the great Leonard Nimoy, the Star Trek legend who sadly passed away back in February. The contest benefits many charities but in order to honor Nimoy, a charity that he cared deeply for, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is being spotlighted.

A short video was released to announce the news and remember Nimoy, with current Spock actor Zachary Quinto fittingly front and center. You can watch the video below.
