Lin-Manuel Miranda has teamed up with Prizeo to support the “Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition,” a group of non-profit organizations working together to improve the lives of immigrants. According to a video Miranda posted on Twitter, the prize for donating at least $10 and performing the challenge — singing a song from the musical “Hamilton” and posting it online — is an all-expenses-paid trip to see the opening of “Hamilton” in Los Angeles. For $10 and an Instagram video, you could win a flight to Los Angeles, hotel accommodations, tickets to the opening of “Hamilton” and get to hang out with Miranda at the after party. It’s a pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
Star and creator of Broadway musical “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda, is using his social media power to start the #Ham4All challenge, to raise funds for non-profits who help immigrants.

He teamed up with Stephen and Ayesha Curry to get the first couple of videos started.
@stephencurry30 and I are collaborating with Lin-Manuel Miranda to raise money for a coalition of immigration organizations. We all feel strongly about supporting these important organizations fighting to protect immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers who want to make a better life for themselves and their families. The grand prize winner will join us and Lin-Manuel at the LA opening on August 16th. We think that this will be the biggest Hamilton sweepstakes yet, but we need your help… Head over to prizeo.com/Hamilton for more details. #HAM4ALL @oliviamunn @therock
“Hamilton” actors Lexi Lawson and Mandy Gonzalez followed suit.

This social media challenge seems like it’s going to be huge and it’s for a good cause, it doesn’t get much better than that.
