Mark Hamill and Kathleen Kennedy Reveal New ‘Force for Change’ Campaign

     April 5, 2016


During filming on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans were offered all kinds of cool incentives to donate including cameo roles in the film as part of the charitable “Force for Change” campaign benefiting UNICEF. It was a massively successful campaign that raised over $10 million, so it’s good to know that the folks behind Star Wars want to do it again.

Producer Kathleen Kennedy and star Mark Hamill have released an announcement video fro the new “Force for Change” campaign. This new campaign will benefit UNICEF Kid Power, American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Make-A-Wish. Starting today, the campaign will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $1 million.

Furthermore, during the first week, “the first 20 fans to raise or donate at least $500 will win a Blu-ray of 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 The Force Awakens.”
