You and a friend will head to Los Angeles for Lionel’s concert at the famous Hollywood Bowl, which he promises is going to be like one big party. And to get the party started, you’ll join Lionel behind the scenes to take photos and have him record “Hello” as a voicemail greeting for you. (Hope you’re ready for your friends to call you non-stop.) As for the show? You’ll be dancing on the ceiling. All night long. Truly! Flights and hotel included.

who you'll help
The Prince’s Trust helps young people develop the confidence and skills they need to realize their ambitions, so that they can live, learn and earn. Founded by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity supports youth who are unemployed, struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Prince’s Trust are in or leaving care, face issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. Their programming aims to give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilize their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. The Trust has helped over 900,000 young people to date and supports over 100 more each day. Your donation will help The Prince’s Trust get closer to achieving its vision of helping all young people fulfill their potential.

At Omaze, we believe fundraising should be about impact, not percentages. Our model allows us, in partnership with Charities Aid Foundation America (we call them CAFA), to really make a difference and disrupt the way society traditionally thinks about charitable giving.
Here’s how it works: Omaze and CAFA work together to offer incredible prizes and experiences that anyone can potentially win. You don’t have to donate to enter, but if you do, your donation to CAFA is then used to make a charitable grant to a great cause, which we love. Omaze pays for everything that’s needed to run the sweepstakes, which means the only ones taking a chance are the entrants (you!)—not the charity. The nonprofit can spend less time worrying about raising funds, and instead focus their energy on doing awesome work.
*This means that for the typical campaign, from every dollar you donate, 60 cents is passed directly through to CAFA, all of which is then used by CAFA to make a grant to the associated charity. If there are multiple charities, then grants of equal share are made to each charity. Of the remaining 40 cents, 25 cents is typically used to pay for things like advertising, payment processing and the costs of making the campaign a success—including providing the prize. Then the last 15 cents goes to Omaze and is used to cover the cost of providing and maintaining the technology and team that makes this all happen.
The result? Causes get a guaranteed grant with no risk and no overhead or investment, our lucky winners get awesome prizes, and everyone else gets to help a great cause and spread joy!
