This 'Star Wars' Charity Campaign Could Put One Lucky Fan In The Han Solo Movie — VIDEO
You love Star Wars, right? Well, have you ever dreamed of getting to spend a night at the incredible Skywalker Ranch? Or how about having the opportunity to attend a Star Wars premiere? Or, hell, the chance to be able to actually be on the set of a Star Wars movie? Of course you have. Well, luckily, the newest Star Wars: Force For Change charity campaign means that any of us could stand a chance of getting to do all of these things (and more), and it couldn't be easier to enter. If all of the above wasn't incentive enough, how about if I mention you might just get to be in the Han Solo film? I'll give you a moment to stop screaming.
Over the course of the next four weeks, between April 11 and May 11, fans can enter the Star Wars: Force For Change competition via Omaze.com, where each week a winner will be randomly selected to win a new prize. As if that wasn't enough, at the very end of the campaign, one randomly-selected grand prize winner will be awarded all three of the incredible experiences on offer during the course of the competition.
And what are those three experiences? Oh my goodness, you guys. Not only do these three prizes represent the past, present, and future of Star Wars, but wow are they amazing. One prize will see a winner and their guest getting to spend all expenses paid night at The Skywalker Ranch, along with a private screening of Star Wars: A New Hope and a tour of the incredible Star Wars archives. A second prize allows a winner and their guest to attend the premiere, red carpet, and afterparty of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The third prize could give you the chance to visit the set of the Han Solo movie, meet directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and possibly even appear in the finished film.
But hey, don't take it from me. Here's what the sensational Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley had to say about the Force For Change campaign:
Since 2014, Star Wars: Force For Change has worked with UNICEF to help improve the lives of children all around the World, and, with the help of Star Wars fans, more than 9 million dollars has been raised to support the initiative. To date, Force For Change has been able to help UNICEF save the lives of over 30,000 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition through the distribution of Ready To Use Therapeutic Food Packets (RUTF) across the globe. The charity has also joined up with Starlight Children's Foundation in 2017 to help bring happiness, and comfort, to hospitalized kids across the U.S.
Which is exactly why Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy believes that the generosity of Star Wars fans deserves to be rewarded with this Force For Change campaign, saying:
In a year that we celebrate 40 years of the Star Wars saga, I continue to be inspired by the incredible generosity and charitable efforts of our fans. We are so proud of their tireless dedication to positively impact the lives of children and others around the world, and hope this year’s Force For Change campaign will offer a few of those wonderful fans an experience they will never forget.
See? You totally deserve to win this.
Fans are encouraged to follow the campaign over on Omaze to enjoy exclusive updates on a weekly basis. Which, I mean, of course you're going to do, right? You wouldn't want to miss out on anything.
