806x806_socialFacebook_MIR_mbYep, you read that right. We are offering a deal of epic proportions—the chance to support a great charity AND have a chance to meet the charity’s founder, Brad Pitt.

Starting today, Groupon Grassroots is launching a campaign with Make It Right, the organization founded by Brad Pitt to build environmentally-friendly homes for people in need. The campaign allows you to donate directly to Make It Right, as well as enter the sweepstakes* to win the chance to travel to New Orleans and attend Make It Right’s gala, which includes performances by platinum-selling recording artists Bruno Mars and Kings of Leon.

Hosted at The Sugar Mill in New Orleans, the gala also includes a cocktail hour, three-course dinner prepared by the city’s finest chefs including Susan Spicer and Donald Link, local jazz musicians, gift bags and more. Additionally, schedule permitting, the winner has the chance to participate in a group meet-and-greet with Brad Pitt. To top off the weekend, the winner also gets a tour of the Make It Right homes with an award-winning architect. 100% of the donations from the Grassroots campaign go directly to Make It Right.
