Pass the salt, Idris Elba.

Red alert!

Idris Elba will spend Valentine’s Day with you—for charity. So you’re doing some good and also getting a chance to eat a candlelit dinner with the sexy “luther” star.

Idris is working with charity site Omaze to raise money for W.E. Can Lead, for better education for girls across Africa.

“Idris needs a Valentine and he thinks you’re just his type. No, this isn’t a dream,” says the charity’s donation page. “Pinch yourself if you don’t believe us. You (and a guest, if that’s your thing) will join Idris for a candlelit meal at one of his favorite restaurants, where you’ll enjoy delicious conversation and great food. You can talk about anything you want to: movies, music, your deepest desires. Idris is a great listener. He’s also a great talker. He’s pretty much great at everything. I mean, have you seen Luther? We’re just over here pretending not to be bitter. Flights and hotel included.”

The money donated to enter goes to W.E. Can Lead, which is committed to ensuring young girls receive the educational opportunity, leadership development and mentoring support necessary to become the new generation of female leaders across the continent of Africa.

“Safe spaces are created for girls to learn critical life skills, build self-esteem and defy the cultural norms that hinder them from fulfilling their full potential. W.E. Can Lead strive to empower girls to become influential leaders and decision-makers in their homes, communities and eventually, their country.

“Join Idris Elba for some quality time over the most delicious meal of your life.”

You’ll also get flown to the city of his restaurant choice and put up in a 4-star hotel should you win.

Interested parties have until Feb. 14 to make a bid.
