The Super Bowl bet between Captain America star Chris Evans and Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has raised nearly $15,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital and almost $12,000 for Christopher’s Haven. Boston native Evans and Seattle resident Pratt had a fun wager – If New England won Super Bowl XLIX, Pratt would wear a Patriots jersey and make an appearance at Christopher’s Haven and, if the Seahawks won, Evans would dress as Captain America and visit Seattle Children’s while carrying a 12th Man flag. Both also tweeted links to the charities’ fundraising pages. In a statement, Lisa Brandenburg, president of Seattle Children’s Hospital said:

“We are grateful that real-life superheroes Chris Pratt and Chris Evans are turning their sports rivalry into an opportunity to support kids in their communities. We are delighted that patients and families at both Seattle Children’s and Christopher’s Haven will benefit from these generous donations.”

As we know, the Patriots won. Evans and Pratt announced they’d be visiting BOTH Christopher’s Haven and Seattle Children’s Hospital. The fun wager also inspired the folks at Tee Fury to make this gem with proceeds benefiting Christopher’s Haven:

Joyce Duvall, executive director of Christopher’s Haven, said in a statement:

“The generosity of Chris Evans and Chris Pratt is overwhelming. They turned a simple, friendly wager into something very significant for both Christopher’s Haven and Seattle Children’s. The fun and goodwill that they have generated will stay with the children a long time.”

You can donate to Seattle Children’s and Christopher’s Haven through their fundraising sites, or by texting TEAMPRATT (for Seattle Children’s) to 501501. Go ahead. DO IT!
