This year’s Star Wars: Force for Change campaign was a resounding success, thanks in no small part to fans who were able to contribute to the initiative that works to benefit children through UNICEF and Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Check out the official ‘thank you’ video and message below:
Thank you to all the fans who participated in the Star Wars: Force for Change 40thanniversary fundraising campaign. Over the course of four weeks between April 11 and May 11, 2017, over 66,435 people from over 160 countries entered for their chance to win three once-in-a-lifetime Star Wars experiences. In the end, we were able to raise a gross total of over $3,400,000, with net proceeds benefiting UNICEF and Starlight Children’s Foundation!
Each week we offered one prize to a randomly selected winner and at the end of the campaign, one lucky fan won the Grand Prize, all three experiences:
- A VIP stay at Skywalker Ranch including a tour of the archives and a screening of Star Wars: A New Hope
- Attend the Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiere and exclusive after party
- Visit the set, meet the directors, and have the chance to appear in the untitled Han Solo movie

With the funds we raised, UNICEF and Starlight Children’s Foundation are able to provide much-needed support for children around the world.
