As a Registered Dietitian, and part owner of a boutique hotel, we have made it our mission to aid where the need is greatest during this COVID-19 isolation period. We decided to connect a local restaurant, Cypress Grille with the Kendall County Women’s Shelter to aid in the support of both. We wanted to shine a light on celebrities who are also getting creative with their charitable endeavors. This week, A-listers like Justin Bieber, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Ciara began posting about the All In Challenge. Basically, it’s another way to fundraise money for those facing food insecurity because of the coronavirus pandemic. They are auctioning off celebrity experiences in order to become the world’s largest digital fundraiser in history! All of us at The William are supporting and taking the All In Challenge as it has already raised more than $7 million toward that goal. Though they are thriving in this arena, we still need your help! Here’s how you can donate.
The challenge is a virtual fundraising tool where performers and athletes offer up items or experiences in an auction or giveaway. All of the proceeds go to nonprofit organizations that combat food insecurity, including Feeding America, Meals On Wheels, World Central Kitchen, and No Kid Hungry.
Fans can bid on a celebrity’s prized possession or enter to win an in-person experience with them on the official All In Challenge website. Participants may buy 10 entries for $10 and up to 200 entries for $200. There is no limit on how much money you can donate. Winners will be notified via phone or email after the drawing or bidding period has ended. Celebrities have been announcing their All In challenges in videos on social media and nominating other celebs to join the effort.
Leonardo DiCaprio, who co-founded America’s Food Fund, is auctioning off a walk-on role in his upcoming Martin Scorsese movie alongside Robert De Niro:
Please bid on these experiences now, and whether you win or not, you are helping the largest fundraiser to feed people in need. Thank you again, for being strong during this time.
