Star Wars | A Force For Change

Star Wars | A Force For Change


Director J.J. Abrams has released a new video from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. Whilst this is extremely exciting for fans of both the saga set in a galaxy far far away and film fans in general, there is more to this story…

Abrams explains of a new project which is orientated much like a Kickstarter entitled Star Wars: A Force for Change, which is in aid of Unicef. You pick from a range of donations from $10 up to $5000 and receive a prize relating to your amount in return.

For example, $10 will obtain you a set of digital badges to show your support. At the other end of the spectrum is a preview of the completed Star Wars: Episode VII in your home town!

All the money will go to Unicef to aid their Innovation Labs, a group which brings solutions to some of the worlds biggest challenges, such as;

  • 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.

Not only will your money go towards a great cause but will also give you a chance to win an amazing prize, a part in the new Star Wars film! You will be flown to London to visit Pinewood Studios. There you will be J.J. Abrams VIP guest with a tour backstage, meeting the stars, watch some of the filming and then you’ll be transformed via a visit to wardrobe and make-up to appear in the new film! (T&C’s There’s a small chance, your scene may be cut from the final film but they promise to try and keep it in!)

Plus no doubt you’ll be forced to sign a heap of non-disclosure agreements so you don’t blab about your visit to the internet!

You can make a donation and find out more by visiting the official Omaze website here.

You can watch the video below.

P.S. I’m loving the old school animatronic alien!
