Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling successfully raised over $200,000 for charity and also gave a few donors an opportunity they would not want to miss!
Sources revealed that the stars were able to raise $276,444 for Christopher’s Haven, Inc. That is one of the charities that Chris Evan has been supporting for a long time. It offers temporary low-cost housing for cancer patients that are seeking treatment away from home in Boston and need a place to stay.
The actors teamed up with Omaze to raise the money. To get more people to donate, the donors entered a lucky draw where the winner would get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get flown out to the premiere of their upcoming movie “The Gray Man”.
The winners are already selected. They are Lula H and her daughter Mariah from Ohio. The two will get to enjoy an all-expense-paid trip including airline tickets and 4-star lodging. But the best part is that they will also get to be a part of the Red Carpet Premiere of the movie alongside Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling!
More about Evan’s And Gosling’s Philanthropy
Chris Evans is a talented actor but he also uses his fame and money for good. He is known to frequently donate to several charities over the years. Not only that, he often commits his precious time to visit and promote organizations on a local and national stage.
In the same year that he stepped into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he took time out to visit children at the Boston Children’s Hospital. He met several children and gave them posters of Captain America. His mother also accompanied him on the visit.
The charity Christopher’s Haven, consists of seven temporary apartments and recreational areas for families of young patients with cancer being treated in Boston. Due to the name, many believe that it is his charity but it was started by a bunch of people back in 2001.
Similarly, Gosling is also big on being involved with different charities. He has been a part of many social causes like Cleanup For Hurricane Katrina, PETA, etc. Gosling also went to Chad to visit Darfur refugees. He has also traveled to Uganda and Congo as part of his partnership with the Enough Project.
Rewarding some of the fans who donate money is a noble way to give back to not only those who need it but also those who are willing to lend a helping hand.
