New York, NY – Comedian Pete Davidson and CrowdRise by GoFundMe 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, to benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).
Davidson announced the launch of the campaign in a video posted to social media: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bu_320HH5ML/

“Climate change is no laughing matter, but I hope that through comedy we can inspire action,” said Pete Davidson. “NRDC has been at the forefront of this fight for almost fifty years, making it its mission to protect the wellbeing of this planet and everything in it. That’s why I am excited to be supporting NRDC and hope that you’ll do the same.”
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 April 13, and the chance to attend the afterparty with Pete. Contestants can enter as many times at they like before it closes on April 4.
"There is a strong push for climate action right now, but the growing momentum to confront the problem needs even more voices to join the chorus,” said NRDC President Rhea Suh. “By bringing his unique voice to the fight, Pete is broadening awareness and building support at this critical moment in time.”
