Star Wars: Force For Change Charity Campaign

Star War fans here's a chance to use your force for good. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and Star Wars veteran Mark Hamill announced a new campaign Star Wars: Force for Change, an initiative that inspires people to make a positive impact on the world sponsored by CrowdRise.

Star Wars Force For Change Charity Campaign

“Star Wars fans are some of the most generous, thoughtful, and sympathetic people I have ever met,” says Lucasfilm President Kathleen 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.”

Starting April 5th, Star Wars: Force for Change will match the donations of Star Wars fans to four select charities up to $1,000,000!


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®

  • 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[ii].

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now available on Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack!

This month-long campaign will lead up to “Star Wars Day” on May the 4th.
