WATCH: Neil Patrick Harris Attempts Magic to Raise Money for the Fight Against AIDS
Today (Dec. 1, 2016) is World AIDS Day, and to do his part, Neil Patrick Harris is launching a new fundraiser that will send a lucky winner and a friend to the Big Apple for a night in the city with the actor! To give this new venture some razzle dazzle, the How I Met Your Mother veteran attempts to pull off a magic trick or two in a new video.
“To support RED’s fight against AIDS, I’m teaming up with Omaze and Coca-Cola to offer you the chance to join me,” Harris says in the video as a wave of his arm sends flowers crashing to the floor, “for a magical night.”
Throughout the clip, Harris lights a playbook on fire, not-so-mysteriously makes a paper airplane fly and does, in fact, make food appear in a dish while explaining how the winner’s night will play out.
By donating ten dollars, you will be entered to win a flight to New York and a night out with Harris and his husband David Burtka. The evening will include some fine dining and a Broadway show. However, as he explains in the video, don’t expect it to be Hamilton, this is a fundraiser after all and those tickets are steep! Proceeds will provide medicine for the babies throughout the world born with HIV.
Hopefully winners will also get some actual sleight-of-hand from the real-life magician during this special night.
Head over to Omaze to make a donation, and check out the clip above!
