Right now, and for the next 49 days, you can go to Omaze.com and make a donation to the WE Schools program, “which aims to empower over 100,000 students, including undeserved youth, to engage in service.” And when you do, you can enter for your chance (or, depending on how much you’re willing to spend, 100 chances, or 250 chances, or 50,000 chances) to win this cool prize:
Like an A-list star (think: Miss Piggy®), you and a friend are off to Los Angeles to join Kermit for a day you’ll never forget. You and Kermit will belt out your favorite tunes (Mahna Mahna, anyone?) and take selfies together, plus you’ll high-five flippers with the most famous frog in showbiz. Find out for yourself how easy—and awesome—it is being green. It’s going to be the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational and Muppetational one-of-a-kind experience ever! Flights and hotel included.
Still not convinced? Check out this nifty video from the Muppets’ official Facebook page!
Wow! Karaoke with the real Kermit! Do you think they’ll let the winner choose the songs? Could I sing “Islands in the Stream” with Kermit, and he can be Kenny Rogers and I’ll be Dolly Parton? And will Kermit with holding a little frog-sized microphone?
According to the website, the deadline to enter is September 20, and the winner will be announced on or around October 9. The website also says “This sweepstakes is not sponsored, endorsed, or affiliated in any way with The Walt Disney Company or The Muppets Studio, LLC,” which is interesting.
You can also enter the other WE sweepstakes for chances to meet Sofia Carson, Natalie Portman, the Property Brothers, Martin Sheen, or Paula Abdul. But who cares about those people?
Thanks to Tough Pigs pal Elise Graham for the alert! Click here to belt out your favorite tunes on the Tough Pigs forum!
