Congratulations, you’re officially a member of the Fast family! No, we’re not gassing you up. You and a guest are joining Charlize Theron, Dwayne Johnson and the rest of Hollywood’s most furious crew at the red carpet premiere of The Fate of the Furious (the eighth film in the franchise, if you’re not up to speed). You’re riding out to the red carpet, seeing the film before anyone else and joining Charlize for drinks at the VIP after-party. We’re also covering your flights to New York and putting you up in a 4-star hotel. We call it the “Fast & Luxurious” package. Fate has brought you this far, now fire up the NOS and get going.
Founded by the Academy Award-winning actor and UN Messenger of Peace, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project’s (CTAOP) mission is to invest in African youth to keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS. Primarily focusing on Charlize’s home country of South Africa, which has the largest HIV-positive population in the world, the Project supports community-engaged organizations that use innovative and community-specific programming to work with youth between the ages of 10-20 years old. These organizations provide critical resources like access to youth-friendly health care, sexual and reproductive health education, life skills, and psychosocial support—all of which empower young people to keep themselves and their peers HIV-free. Donations will be distributed through Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAFA), a 501(c)(3) public charity.
