Idris Elba wants you to be his Valentine's Day date (no, really)

Jan 14 2017, 3:08 am

Have you ever dreamed of stepping out on a date with Idris Elba? Well now’s your chance…

The British actor, who is currently in BC working on upcoming survival drama The Mountain Between Us alongside Kate Winslet, is raising money for charity by offering people the chance to win a Valentine’s date with him. Or as he puts it: “That’s right love, just you and me, no one else around, just us…”

“We’ll get things started off with cocktails, or perhaps champagne,” the leading man promises. “And once you’re feeling comfortable, we can order whatever your heart desires,” he teases.

It’s not all for love, however. You see, Elba is looking for someone to pound his yams (his words not ours) this Valentine’s Day in honour of a good cause.

For a $10 donation you not only get a shot at dating the debonair dreamboat, but you also help to fund the work of W.E. Can Lead, an organization that ensures schoolgirls in Africa receive the educational opportunity, leadership development and mentoring necessary to become the new generation of female leaders.

What are you waiting for ladies? Or men…
