What could possibly be more exciting than the arrival of Avengers: Infinity War on the big screen this May? Why, attending the premiere in Los Angeles with one of its stars, of course! Thanks to a new charity effort, that's exactly what Doctor Strange himself is offering.

Benedict Cumberbatch has teamed up with Omaze, an online fundraising platform that offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and is encouraging fans to enter into the competition, which could see one lucky winner being flown to L.A. for the red-carpet event.

To get the message across, the British actor has done a dramatic reading of "I'm a Little Teapot," which more or less proves his unparallelled acting range and that he’s capable of tackling anything.


You can enter the competition by donating here, and if you win, your flights and hotels will be covered. It’s all happening to raise money for GEANCO, which works to save and transform lives in Africa by focusing on the health and education of those in Nigeria.

The donations will help provide life-changing scholarships to young female victims of terrorism and gender inequality, orthopedic surgeries to those in desperate need, and maternal and infant health programs.

Of course, it’s not the first time that a member of the Avengers has been involved in helping out a great cause. In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, which caused catastrophic damage to the island of Puerto Rico last year, several cast members decided to assemble and put on a play to raise some much-needed funds. Black Widow, aka Scarlett Johansson, organized the event—a staged reading of the Thornton Wilder play Our Town at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta—in tandem with the John Gore Organization, which sold over 3,500 tickets and raised an impressive $500,000.
