Bake Brownies With The Cast of Weeds For Charity
Weeds fans rejoice! The opportunity to hang out and bake brownies with the cast of Weeds has arrived at last.
Weeds actress Mary-Louise Parker, 49, tells Us Weekly how easy (and delicious!) it is to enter the Omaze campaign raffle for a chance to win. Every entry helps support the young victims of Uganda’s civil war through Hope North Uganda, an organization that Parker passionately supports.
“Omaze is an amazing organization and they've raised lots of money for charities. [The raffle] benefits escaped child soldiers in Uganda, a school I'm working with there. It's in a really tenuous place financially and I'm trying to turn it around and give the kids a chance. Kids' whole villages have been wiped out. It's harrowing and heartbreaking. They have been left with nothing and we just want to help. This is their only chance. I want to help kids everywhere."
Tickets are only $10 to enter and the winner will be flown out to Los Angeles, put up in a hotel and get the chance to bake brownies with Parker and the cast of Weeds while enjoying a best-of-Weeds viewing marathon.
“Kevin Nealon and Hunter Parrish and other people are going to come by. We’re going to bake brownies and do whatever [the winners] want to do! We’re going to make it fun and have so many surprises. It'll be a big party!” the Weeds actress tells Us.
And as for that "special" ingredient? Parker says it's up to the winner to decide what goes into the recipe for the brownies, "whatever helps raise money for the kids, I'm down to do. I'd probably make oxycontin brownies if they asked – whatever! Just kidding."
When the Red 2 actress isn’t baking brownies for charity she is busy spending time on her farm with her two kids, William (who is Parker's son with ex-boyfriend, actor Billy Crudup) and Caroline, “we have two baby goats and the kids are really happy about that. And piglets! Seriously, that’s my real life!”
