October 1, 2012 – To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie The Princess Bride, actors Cary Elwes, Robin Wright and director Rob Reiner have partnered with global humanitarian organization Mercy Corps to raise funds for its relief and development efforts across the globe.

By signing up as a monthly Mercy Corps donor at www.MercyCorps.org/PrincessBride, fans of the 1987 movie can receive limited-edition memorabilia, including a copy of the movie script signed by Elwes, Wright and Reiner, an alternate-title movie poster, and an official replica Rob Reiner beard hair.

Beginning Monday, October 1, the first 100 people to commit to a three-month Mercy Corps donation membership at each of the $5, $10, $15, $20 or $25 levels will receive a free Princess Bride memorabilia item.

“Mercy Corps is the ideal organization to support in conjunction with the anniversary, because like the characters in the movie, Mercy Corps prevails against all odds to make a difference in the world,” said Elwes, who played the leading character of Westley in The Princess Bride.

Mercy Corps is a humanitarian organization that saves and improves lives in the world’s toughest places. Its programs help people turn the crises of natural disasters, conflict and poverty into opportunities, by providing them with the tools and support they need to transform their lives.
