Hanging on the beach with friends and some puppies is a pretty sweet way to spend an afternoon. But when you throw Orlando Bloom into the mix, it’s a downright dream. Read on to hear all about our winner Jen’s Bloom-tastic beach day.
So what was it like when you first met up for lunch?
I knew he was coming, but I was trying to be surprised. So while I was waiting, he showed up with his friend and his dog Mighty. It was so amazing! We talked for a little bit and then we went to get some food at SoHo House. The food was delicious! He told us some details about his life and my friend and I told him about ours. It was fun!
What did you talk about?
We talked about my college life, and we talked about how I met my friend Drew (who I brought with me).
Is Drew also a fan of Orlando?
Yeah, we both love Lord of the Rings!
After lunch you went to the beach, right? How was that?
It was good! We played cornhole. I beat him! And I met a couple of his friends and his son. There were some other dogs there too—in addition to Mighty—which was just so cute!
Orlando posted a video with you during the experience on his social media. What was that like for you?
I was so excited to see that! I was like, “Oh my gosh, I’m on his social media!”
What would you say the highlight of the experience was for you?
I think the highlight was meeting Orlando and just enjoying the day with him. And getting some hugs from him, that was really special.
Thanks, Jen! And thanks to all of you for supporting UNICEF’s efforts to save and protect the world’s most vulnerable children.
