Comedian Pete Davidson and CrowdRise by GoFundMe today announced a chance for one lucky fan and a guest to attend a taping of “Saturday Night Live” and join the cast at the afterparty. In honor of Earth Day, the contest will benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

Davidson announced the launch of the campaign in a video posted to social media here: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bg1ZMCAH_Rr/?hl=en&taken-by=petedavidson

“This year Earth Day is more important than ever because quite frankly we’re turning our water, our oceans and our air into a garbage dump and it has to stop,” Davidson said. “No one is fighting harder to save us and our planet than NRDC. I hope you’ll join me in supporting their efforts to build a healthier future for all of us.”

By donating $10 to NRDC, participants will be entered to win roundtrip airfare for two, a two-night stay at a hotel in New York City, a pair of tickets to the taping of Saturday Night Live on May 12, and the chance to attend the afterparty with Pete. Contestants can enter as many times at they like before it closes on April 24.

NRDC is an international environmental nonprofit working to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends—for nearly 50 years. NRDC’s team of scientists, lawyers and policy experts, together with the power of more than 3 million members and activists, are creating solutions for lasting environmental change, protecting natural resources in the United States and across the globe.

“Earth Day is a reminder that every person deserves clean air, safe water and a livable future,” said NRDC President Rhea Suh. “A healthy environment should be a basic right for all of us – regardless of where we live, how we vote, or what we look like. Together, we can ensure a better tomorrow for our children, for ourselves and for future generations.”
