“Red State” director and “Comic Men” creator Kevin Smith is still deciding on a charitable offer from a group of New Jersey-based filmmakers. But that decision may be a little easier to make once Smith learns about an incredible addition Riffel has put on the table: A “swag bag” filled with more than 20 awesome items.

The original offer, explains producer Mark Zobian, is simple: “We’re going to give Kevin Smith $10,000 to donate to charity if he reviews a feature film we’ve made called “Night of the Day of the Dawn…Part 5.” Smith, who has expressed interest in the offer, would donate the money to his own charity, The Wayne Foundation. The organization, founded by Jamie Walton and Kevin Smith (Smith is Vice President) was created to end human trafficking and child slavery.

And now that original offer also includes what the Hollywood community refers to as a “swag bag,” a bag of free items that celebrities receive at exclusive parties and red-carpet premieres (the incredible contents of the “swag bag” can be seen on YouTube under “Kevin Smith’s Swag Bag”).

Jim Riffel, the director “Night of the Day of the Dawn…Part 5” spoke with Jamie Walton, the President of The Wayne Foundation and Mr. Smith has expressed interest in reviewing the movie and having $10,000 donated to his charity. “It’s been a few moths and I’m not sure exactly why we don’t have a definite answer from Mr. Smith yet but we’ve decided to be proactive and sweeten the deal for him. This may be the added incentive that pushes him over the edge.”

“Insectavora,” the star and hostess of “Night of the Day of the Dawn…Part 5,” also believes three months is a long time but feels confident that Kevin Smith will review the film. “It’s $10,000! That might not be a lot of cash for a super-multimillionaire but to us regular folk it’s a fortune! Take a look around! The economy is at an all time low and charities are hurting! I know he’s thinking about the offer and I really believe with this cool bag of free stuff it’s now too good to pass up!"
