Donors have a chance to win a Hawaiian trip for four to spend time with Pratt on the set of the Jurassic World Sequel
CrowdRise, part of GoFundMe, announced today that actor Chris Pratt is teaming up with 14-year-old Makenna Schwab, a patient of Seattle’s Children’s Hospital, to start a fundraiser benefiting the hospital’s orthopedics department. Donors will have an opportunity to win a trip for four to spend time with Chris Pratt on the set of the Jurassic World Sequel in Hawaii.
Chris and Makenna met a year and a half ago, became fast friends, and decided to work on a project to help kids like her. Makenna suffers from a rare connective tissue disorder called Larsen Syndrome. Over the course of her life, she has been treated at Seattle Children’s Hospital and received over 15 life-saving surgeries. Together, Chris and Makenna are launching this fundraiser to build awareness and help others.
“[Makenna’s] wish was to raise money so she could help other kids in her similar situation... she’s extraordinary,” said Chris Pratt in a video posted on his CrowdRise campaign. “She’s the kind of young, wonderful kid who one day is going to run this world..she’s so strong, so wise, and her spirit is so vibrant, so pure and full of life.”
Each donation of $10 to the fundraiser is an entry to win; for example, if someone donates $50, they will be entered five times. The winner of the contest will receive a trip for four people to Hawaii, including roundtrip airfare, accommodations for four nights, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a sneak peak of the Jurassic World sequel with Chris Pratt, all while helping a great cause and making Makenna’s wish come true.
