As Dos Equis beer's "most interesting man in the world," Jonathan Goldsmith's resume includes such feats as walking on fire and training canaries in the art of falconry. But now the real-life Goldsmith is adding a pretty interesting item to his own resume: tracking down and eliminating landmines, USA Today reports. Goldsmith is aiming to raise money for landmine removal in Cambodia after accidents involving them spiked this year.

And his fundraising contest (which closes Oct. 8, 2014) sounds pretty interesting: The winner gets to spend a day with Goldsmith in Vermont, and the 76-year-old says it will be spent "doing some things—off-road driving and some other little events, one being falconry." Other prizes include a signed box of cigars, the Burlington Free Press reports. Another interesting tidbit about Goldsmith: He has saved a girl's life. (Here's some fairly convincing evidence that another celeb is truly the most interesting man in the world.)
