For anyone who is a Star Wars fan, the prospect of an upcoming movie is a chance to be absolutely giddy with joy. While personally I am waiting to see what JJ Abrams can do with this franchise, I am one of the purists who believes that it will never be as good as the original campy version (before the misguided attempt to “remaster” them by Lucas) but hey I am open minded if nothing else. No matter how you feel about the new movie, a chance to appear in it is every Star Wars nerd’s dream, so for you guys there is a chance – keep reading, but for the rest of us its just a chance to help a good cause powered by the momentum of the brand. Enter:

There are different contribution levels and various rewards given out for each. Unicef being close to my heart, I contributed at two levels: Supporter / $10 – Founding Member Digital Badge Friend / $70 – Founding Member Poster So if you can contribute to the cause, please do and even if you can’t, you can still enter for the promotion free by using the Free Alternative Method of Entry.
