The All In Challenge was launched last week by Philadelphia 76ers owner Michael Rubin and has already roped in names like Leonardo DiCaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow, Drake, Ryan Reynolds and Justin Bieber.
“Together what we want to do is literally build the largest movement with all the best entertainers, celebrities, athletes, business titans, coming together to make a real impact on this issue,” Rubin said on Twitter when launching the initiative. The goal is to encourage celebrities to offer one-of-a-kind experiences and items in an “auction” that people can enter to win, with a donation as low as $10. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry and America’s Food Fund, which directly benefits World Central Kitchen and Feeding America.
Some of the items up for auction include a hand-beaded Calvin Klein dress that Gywneth Paltrow wore to the 2000 Oscars. “I’m donating a dress I wore to the Oscars (and that holds great sentimental value!) which I will personally hand to you over a cup of tea or a glass of wine,” wrote Paltrow on Instagram.

In an effort to focus on organizations providing food assistance, I have joined the #allinchallenge which is raising money for @mealsonwheelsamerica, @nokidhungry, @wckitchen, @feedingamerica and @americasfoodfund. I am donating a dress I wore to the Oscars (and that holds great sentimental value!) which I will personally hand to you over a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Go to allinchallenge.com to bid as 100% of funds will go to help Americans currently experiencing food insecurity. I love you @garyvee for being part of this. I now challenge @drewbarrymore @camerondiaz and @lakebell.
The Friends cast has also joined in on the action, offering a chance for fans to come and view the taping of their upcoming reunion special. “Your Friends from FRIENDS want you to know something… We are all in!!,” posted Lisa Kudrow on Instagram. “You may have heard about the reunion special we are doing for HBO Max, well… WE ALL want YOU and five of YOUR friends to join the 6 of us on Stage 24.” The winning group will get to have coffee with the cast on the Central Perk set in addition to free airfare and one night’s hotel accommodation.

According to Forbes,” a walk-on role with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro in Martin Scorsese’s next film, plus lunch with Leo and the cast, has raised the most money so far.”
