Mark Hamill and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy teamed up to announce the campaign. “Star Wars fans are some of the most generous, thoughtful, and sympathetic people I have ever met,” said Kennedy. “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.”
The past Star Wars: Force for Change campaign raised more than $10,000,000. Fans who donate to this campaign have a chance to win a trip to Skellig Michael where The Force Awakens‘ final scene with Hamill and Daisy Ridley was shot.
Details on the Campaign: 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 The Force Awakens signed by the cast[i], 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.
