Deadpool is committed to fighting cancer—so much so that he’ll give one lucky fan the clothes off his back to do so.

In a new video, Deadpool (with some help from Ryan Reynolds) is back and he’s gone pink: everything from the beverage he’s drinking to his suit is all bright pink. The pink Deadpool suit giveaway is the grand prize of a new Omaze campaign that Deadpool is launching to benefit the nonprofit Fuck Cancer. And as someone who’s been personally affected by cancer, it’s a charity close to Deadpool’s heart.

Like many Omaze campaigns, the more you donate, the more chances you’ll have at winning the grand prize. Some of the high-end brackets offer perks like an outgoing voicemail message recorded by Deadpool himself and a signed Deadpool DVD.

But the real prize is the suit.

According to Reynolds, the suit has only been worn once, and if you own it you can do pretty much anything you want with it—and Deadpool has a big imagination. But he’s also realistic about part of the reason he’s doing this.

“This is one fight where everyone can be a hero, no superpowers, capes, or lame CG costumes needed—just your money,” he said. “Seriously, we need that—these suits aren’t cheap.”
