While fans are understandably very disappointed that we won't be getting the Friends reunion special anytime soon, there is a silver lining in all of this. As you've probably heard, the six original cast members behind the beloved show were set to all get together for an unscripted special, which was believed to premiere with HBO Max next month. However, because of safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, filming unfortunately had to be postponed. But now, whenever the special is filmed, you and your pals could have a lucky spot in the audience. Yes, we're serious!
The cast of Friends has teamed up for the All in Challenge, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, to set up a contest for fans to come see the show. The initiative, created by Fanatics, is currently raising money for America's Food Fund, providing for families in need amid the coronavirus pandemic. To enter for the chance to win, all you have to do is make a donation, with $10 getting you 10 entries, $25 for 25 entries, and so on. The lucky winner will also get to bring along five of their friends, and will go on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour for free.

All six of the Central Perk crew actors took to Instagram to announce the exciting contest, with Jennifer Aniston writing, "We’re so excited to join the ALL IN challenge to help keep people fed and healthy during this time."
"Can’t wait to meet and hug you guys when this is all over [emoji]. Until then, keep [FaceTiming], calling, DMing, and texting your friends and family. We gotta stay connected," Aniston concluded her post.
