Do you like helping charities? Are you a massive fan of Star Wars? You can now combine your interests to both with the new Star Wars: Force of Change initiative! Thanks to Disney, Lucasfilm, and Bad Robot, Force of Change is asking patrons to make a donation to UNICEF’s Innovative Labs program for all types of incentives, including advance screenings of Star Wars Episode VII, t-shirts, lightsaber replicas, and all sorts of Episode VII-related memorabilia. The biggest incentive to donate, however, is eligibility to appear in Episode VII with every donation.
For lifelong fans of Star Wars, this is almost a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be immortalized in a scene next to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia (albeit in alien makeup). Meanwhile, the money is going to a worthwhile charity. UNICEF’s Innovation Labs is a worldwide program that helps foster creativity amongst children in fun community projects. Some of the examples listed include “portable, solar-powered learning kits being built in China, Uganda, and Burundi to ensure every child in the world has access to relevant, quality learning,” “mobile phone application developed in South Sudan and Uganda, and used in the Philippines, that helps reunite children with their families after an emergency,” and more.
