Show your Force! Mark Hamill teases his Star Wars: Episode VIII Jedi stare while spoofing his Star Wars: The Force Awakens dialogue free role in a new contest video. Yes, this morning Mark Hamill and producer Kathleen Kennedy teamed-up to announce a new Star Wars: Force for Change charitable campaign. The Force For Change will match up to $1,000,000 in donations made by fans to four charities between April 5th and May 4th. In this special video, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Star Wars legend Mark Hamill also announce an exciting new contest!
This latest campaign is sponsored by CrowdRise in support of Star Wars: Force for Change, an initiative that inspires people to make a positive impact on the world. To date, Star Wars: Force for Change has raised over $10,000,000 with the help of the amazing Star Wars community. This month-long campaign will lead up to "Star Wars Day" on May the 4th. The four select charities include the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in support of UNICEF Kid Power, American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Make-A-Wish. Says Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
"Star Wars fans are some of the most generous, thoughtful, and sympathetic people I have ever met. I am so proud of the charitable work they have done over the years and hope this month-long donation-matching campaign will go some way to express our sincere thanks for their tireless efforts."
Over the course of the four-week period, which culminates at 11:59pm (PST) on May 4th, fans will be able to donate through CrowdRise.com/ForceForChange to these four charities and have their donations matched dollar for dollar up to $1,000,000. During the first week, the first 20 fans to raise or donate at least $500 will win a Blu-ray of Star Wars: The Force Awakens signed by the cast, with more incentives to come. All participants who enter will also have a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Ireland, including Skellig Michael along the Wild Atlantic Way, the location of the dramatic final scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
