The actress and philanthropist Tweeted:
Whoever wins will get two tix to the LA premiere and after-party of “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” which will be happening on May 15. You’ll get to meet Charlize, and Charitybuzz explained to MTV Act in an email that you’ll also be able to “party with Seth McFarlane, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and the rest of the cast at the after-party.” (Hey, small Charitybuzz world! We were just writing about Neil Patrick Harris also using the auction site to raise funds for a cause.)
You have until May 7 to bid, and the proceeds go to the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, an org that fights HIV/AIDS. Charlize explained, “As a native of South Africa and a UN Messenger of Peace, I have seen firsthand the devastation HIV and AIDS have inflicted throughout sub-Saharan Africa. I founded CTAOP to help shed light on the magnitude of the problem and support the efforts of African communities to battle a disease that continues to kill millions each year.”
She continued, “In Zulu, there’s a word, ‘Ubuntu,’ which translated means, ‘I am because we are.’ It’s the idea that to be human is to be interconnected with one another. As we are united, I believe we all have a responsibility to help each other. Together, standing in solidarity with those on the front lines in Africa, we can make a difference.”
Whether you bid in the auction or help out her org in other ways, it shows that solidarity!
