charity competition

Do you fancy winning a Reaver costume used in the film Serenity worth £1,500? Or a slightly easier to store (and less smelly!) framed copy of Astonishing X-Men issue One, signed by genre legends Joss Whedon and Stan Lee?

These are just two of dozens of prizes up for grabs in a charity raffle being drawn this week - and SFX readers can get double the amount of entries for their money in the exclusive online deal. You may have read about this in a recent Ad Infinitum part of the magazine. are running the online competition, with all proceeds going to Equality Now, a charity which works fighting human rights abuses and domestic violence across the world.

Joss Whedon is patron of Equality Now, and a lot of the prizes will be of particular interest to fans of the Whedonverse, with companies and individuals including The Prop Store of London, Titan Books, Nathan Fillion, and James Marsters donating lots of unusual pieces of merchandise to the cause.

What's more, everyone who joins the raffle will get their name and location put onto a specially commissioned commemorative print which will be freely available from the website, as well as being framed and presented to the cast, Equality Now, Joss Whedon, all the main sponsors and SFX - that's right, your name could be on our wall!

Tickets are available in batches of five numbers/chances and cost £5. What's more, anyone who quotes promo code: SFX FAN will get double the tickets for the same price - ten for the price of five, 30 for the price of 15 and so on. Nice.

And (and!) one lucky reader who buys tickets with the SFX code will win a framed Serenity Bank Note kindly donated by The Prop Store of London, while three runners up will get a rare Mark "Badger" Sheppard coaster signed by the man himself. This charity competition is being run by so head over there now for your chance to win. It closes this Saturday, so hurry.
