Jesse Eisenberg may play the villain in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but in real life he’s a good guy. And through our ultimate Batman v Superman experience, he’s supporting SEED Project—an incredible organization that Jesse’s very passionate about (his cousin is the executive director).
SEED Project works to develop the next generation of African leaders by leveraging kids’ passion for education and basketball. Yes, basketball. Awesome, right? They use the sport as a tool to increase academic interest, motivation and success, while teaching leadership skills. In Jesse’s own words:
“I’m a lifelong basketball fan and, as Lex Luthor, I even get to take a few shots in Batman v Superman. So I’m able to combine that passion with the incredibly innovative SEED Project—which uses basketball and education to empower the next generation of African leadership. I look forward to meeting the Omaze winner and taking a few shots—with a camera, of course—at the movie’s red carpet premiere in New York City.”
When you enter for a chance to photobomb celebrities with Jesse on the red carpet, you’re supporting SEED’s youth development program, SEED Rise. They provide after-school academic, basketball and leadership programs for more than 2,000 youth, grades K-12, in Senegal. Just $10 can provide school supplies for a student for one whole year and $1000 is enough to provide full scholarships for four students! So it really doesn’t take much to make a real difference for these kids.
Check out the impact you can make:
We couldn’t be more excited to partner with these guys. After all, Omaze has basketball to thank for its existence.
