The vamp! augmented reality software allows you to SUPER-IMPOSE yourself into several different photos with each athlete for Virtual Athlete Mobile Photos. The final photos can be found inside the camera gallery on the fan's mobile device which allows the individual to quickly and easily share them via social media outlets such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

One lucky fan will win an opportunity to have their photo taken with the "real" Jamaal Charles following the Kansas City Chiefs final home game on Dec. 23, 2012. A different fan will have a similar opportunity with the "real" Chris Culliver after the San Francisco 49ers final home game on Dec. 30, 2012.

The free vamp! mobile app is immediately available for download at the Apple App Store and Android Marketplace. Fans can individually select each athlete's six-pack of photos for 99-cents, with a portion of the proceeds also benefiting the United Athletes Foundation (UAF). 

"I'm excited about this cutting-edge technology which will allow my fans to interact with me in a whole new way – while raising money for charity," said Ray Lewis.

"I partnered with MoZeus a while ago because I love the technology and thought it was an innovative way to benefit charity," said Jamaal Charles.

Chris Culliver added, "This is cool new platform that allows my fans to give back. I look forward to viewing the fan photos posted on social media and having the opportunity to meet two of them at a San Francisco 49ers game later this season."

To date, MoZeus Worldwide has worked with more than 200 brands, agencies and sports properties to leverage the SMART Activator for more than 100,000 event days, resulting in 10 million unique leads and 30 million survey questions answered.

"MoZeus is excited about this partnership and what this new approach to celebrity charity engagement will mean to fans, as well as other worthy charities, worldwide."
