Are you a “Rick and Morty” fan? What if I told you there’s a chance you can go beyond just watching it and actually be a character on the show?! Wubba lubba dub dub!
The team behind the popular Adult Swim cartoon is offering fans the chance to appear as a character in the show (in cartoon form, of course) with a simple $10 donation to charity. Each $10 donation will earn you 100 entries into the contest, but giving more will get you extra entries and “Rick and Morty” merchandise such as T-shirts, portal guns, a Pickle Rick plush and more.
The grand prize winner will win a trip for two to Los Angeles to meet creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon and tour the “Rick and Morty” production studio. Then, you’ll get drawn into a future episode and take home some “Rick and Morty” merchandise. Airfare and hotel are included.
The money raised will go to support Next for Autism and Bergen County’s United Way in New Jersey, both which help people with autism.
According to the contest page, Next for Autism “transforms the national landscape of services for people with autism by strategically designing, launching, and supporting innovative programs.” The organization helps create and support educational, clinical and vocational programs.
Donations to the contest through Bergen County’s United Way will benefit Prevail NJ, which offers alternative residential options for adults with autism to combat the lack of housing available for them.
These are causes that hit close to home for the show’s creators. Harmon has talked openly about living with Asperger’s syndrome; he was diagnosed when he was working on another show he created, “Community.”
The contest runs until Oct. 1, so you have plenty of time to make a donation or two or three. To enter, just go to fundraising website Prizeo and follow the instructions there.
Will you be entering for your chance to meet the creators of “Rick and Morty” and be drawn-in to a future episode?
