Richard Branson’s space flight company Virgin Galactic is offering two free tickets to space for next year. Just moments after returning back to Earth on Sunday, Branson announced he has teamed up with the charity fundraising platform Omaze to give away two tickets aboard the VSS Unity space plane.

While the giveaway is free to enter, participants can get more raffle entries if they donate to the Space for Humanity Organization, which aims to make space travel more accessible for those of diverse racial, economic and disciplinary backgrounds.

Space for Humanity is a not-for-profit that seeks to to expand access to space for all of humanity. Donations can be made at spaceforhumanity.org/donate. In the meantime, the contest is set to close on August 31.
