Today is Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you) and to help celebrate, I want to tell you about an amazing thing you can do. Lucasfilm and Star Wars: Force for Change have given us as a country a challenge – Roar For Change. Star Wars invites fans and families to share their own version of Chewbacca’s iconic roar. I know my girls were itching to do theirs – me, not so much. I just don’t have the skills for it. But for charity, OK, bring it on. This challenge could potentially earn up to $1 million for UNICEF, who do lifesaving work for children around the world. Why would you not put your Chewbacca face on and roar from the rooftops for that?!
Roar For Change
For each public post, like, or share on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter that includes #RoarForChange between May 3 – 25, 2018, Star Wars: Force for Change U.S. will donate $1 to UNICEF USA, up to $1 million. Fans can share their best Chewbacca impersonation, don a voice-changing Hasbro’s Electronic Chewbacca mask. You can even create a Dubsmash using one of Chewbacca’s best-known roars from the Star Wars saga – which will be hosted on the app’s homepage through May 25th, making it easy to find.

Star Wars: Force for Change
Star Wars: Force for Change, a charitable initiative from Lucasfilm and Disney, harnesses the strength of Star Wars to empower and improve the lives of children around the world. Since 2014 when it was inspired by Star Wars fans, Star Wars: Force for Change has raised over $16 million to date for charitable causes around the world!
Nearly one in four children worldwide are severely malnourished. UNICEF is working in 190 countries and territories to defend children’s rights and, among other issues, help address malnutrition. On behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change, funds unlocked through this campaign will help UNICEF to provide Ready-to-Use-Therapeutic Food packets to children suffering from malnutrition, helping them to have a chance at a brighter future.
