Your friends and family may soon be on the receiving end of Morgan Freeman's famous voice for a good cause.

PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that through his new partnership with Omaze, Freeman, 83, will video call with one lucky fan, who he'll then team up with to prank call their friends and family. The lucky winner will even score an outgoing voicemail message recorded by the star. This is all to support the Tallahatchie River Foundation and ACLU Foundation SoCal.

"Support a great cause and I'm giving you a chance to prank one of your friends or family members from me," says Freeman in the video. 

In a hilarious example, Freeman pretends to make a prank call, saying, "Hello Rupert, this is Morgan Freeman and I have one thing to say about your musical stylings. Boo, you stink pal," before adding, "That's just one option."

The call "doesn't even need to be a prank," says the Oscar winner. "I could just be a messenger."

"The point is, whoever you decide to call, we're going to have a lot of fun," he adds.
