Jennifer Lawrence, Mocking Jay


Want to meet Jennifer Lawrence? Obviously that's a rhetorical question, because who wouldn't want to hang with J.Law?!

Well, here's your shot! For a donation of $10 or more, you'll be entered in a contest to win a trip to the L.A. premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1! You'll also be supporting the Special Olympics World Games 2015—something near and dear to Jennifer's heart.

If you win, you and a friend will travel to the premiere in style (flight and limo transport is included!) right onto the red carpet. From there, you'll join Jen "and other select cast in the VIP room" where you'll get to snap some pics with your new BFFs. Then, you'll watch the movie (before everyone else!) and join Katniss and her crew at the VIP after-party.

OMG, right? That's not all. You'll be winning even if you don't get the grand prize! Based on the amount of your donation—$10, $25, $50, $100...all the way up to $25,000—you'll get rewards. These run the gamut—from a Mockingjay Part 1 digital campaign badge to a copy of Suzanne Collins' book (signed by J.Law!), to premiere and party tickets.

The Omaze contest, which Jennifer promoted on her Facebook page Thursday, will help to fund the Special Olympics World Games, taking place this July in Los Angeles. Per the contest's website, the Games "promote equality, acceptance, and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities around the world and is one of the most powerful vehicles for communicating to the world the abilities and gifts of people with intellectual disabilities."

Jennifer and her family have a long history of supporting those with disabilities, specifically Down Syndrome of Louisville, Inc., a nonprofit serving Kentucky and Indiana. Back in 2013, the organization awarded Jen their first annual Friendship Award.

Andy Strunk, a family friend and member of the organization, described the actress as "his true friend." Although Jen wasn't able to be there in person to receive her award due to a filming conflict, her brother Blaine Lawrence accepted it on her behalf.

She has a long history of volunteering with Down Syndrome of Louisville, Inc.—including volunteering at her grandfather and uncle's annual Christmas party for the organization.
