It’s unclear if it’ll take place in the Matrix or not, but Keanu Reeves is giving one fan a special Zoom date for an important cause.

What’s happening:

  • Reeves has partnered with Camp Rainbow Gold — a cancer charity group from Idaho — to offer a 15-minute Zoom call with a fan who decides to outbid other fans, according to CNN.
  • The event description reads: “Bill & Ted. Speed. The Matrix. John Wick. You know him. You love him. This is truly priceless and now you have the chance to Zoom with him from home!”
  • The virtual date holds a value of $10,000. Bidding has already increased to $16,600. One anonymous bid raised the price to that amount. Now, the bid has jumped to more than $50,000 for the small date with Reeves, according to KHQ.
  • Bidding ends Monday. The date takes place during the week of July 6.
  • Interesting note about the date: “Camp Rainbow Gold and/or the celebrity has the right to cancel the call if there is threatening or inappropriate behavior. Nontransferable, no returns or exchanges, not available for resale and no cash value.”

Something similar from Jeremy Piven:

  • Celebrities across Hollywood have offered up small dates and mini-chats through the app Cameo, a social media app where people can purchase small video messages from celebrities.
  • Jeremy Piven is one such celebrity, offering a 10-minute Zoom call for $15,000, according to The Verge.
