Earlier this month, with a little help from Iron Man himself, Marvel Studios announced that the release date for the third Avengers film would be moved up from May 4 to April 27. RDJ is back at it again, this time giving two fans the opportunity to be his VIP guests to the Avengers: Infinity War world premiere on April 23 in Hollywood.
In a video posted to his Twitter account, RDJ announced that a lucky winner and a friend will get to join him at the world premiere by donating to Random Act Funding -- an organization founded by RDJ and his wife Susan -- in support of the ROHHAD Association and the Brian Ortega Foundation. In order to be eligible, contestants must make a donation of at least $10 US, with higher donations garnering a higher chance of winning. Donations can be made through RDJ's Crowdrise campaign.

The ROHHAD Association is an organization dedicated to funding and promoting research that will lead to new understandings and treatments of ROHHAD, offering support for people with ROHHAD and their families/carers, while also campaigning for and raising awareness of the extremely rare and life-limiting disease that becomes present in children after the age of 1.5 years. ROHHAD is an acronym for Rapid Onset Obesity with Hypothalamic Dysfunction, Hypoventilation and Autonomic Nervous System Dysregulation.
The Brian Ortega Foundation is a nonprofit organization created by professional MMA fighter Brian Ortega dedicated to inspiring others to be the change they hope to see in the world, with 100% of the foundations proceeds being donated back to the community and beyond.
RDJ made the video from his command post in Wales while wearing a Stark Industries hat. He also dropped a couple "nuggets" of information on Avengers: Infinity War, saying, "I hear it's the best Avengers flick yet, and I'm also told I appear in it."
