Here's Your Chance For Star Wars Related Immortality

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2014 at 11:00 AM


Your prayers have been answered, nerds. J.J. Abrams sent a message from the Star Wars set to tease us, and formally announce the Star Wars: Force for Change initiative. This is an effort to raise funds and awareness for UNICEF's Innovation Labs and its innovative projects benefiting children in need.
Star Wars: Force for Change wants to create a brighter tomorrow for thousands of kids and families around the world. With your help and creativity we can develop innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges. By acting as a Force for Change, your donation to support UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and other innovative work for children will fund dozens of life-changing projects like these in communities across the globe: • 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. • A text messaging solution in Zambia that helps families receive infant medical test results from clinics, in half the time, through mobile phones. Join us! Help create a brighter tomorrow for thousands of kids and families. Be a force for change.
Every contribution offers exclusive Star Wars memorabilia AND A CHANCE TO BE AN EXTRA IN THE NEW STAR WARS FILM, and the proceeds go to a really good cause. Incentives include concept art, Episode VII script signed by J.J. Abrams and limited edition light hilt. Basically, this is a Kickstarter that doesn't suck.
