Back to week 47: I wear a variety of shirts, including an Adidas soccer jersey, and a Disney Cast Member exclusive stormtrooper helmet schematic tee. For this stretch of my fundraising campaign for Collateral Repair Project, we give thanks for a bunch of fine folks who lent me some wear this week, including Dani, Lori, Russell, and Trina. Plus a shirt I bought as a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish through the 501st Legion, so now it’s doing double duty! But sadly no donations in this time frame – makes for a sad turkey!

Every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project! This review for Week 47 covers November 18 to November 24 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for and the latest happenings at Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.

Week 45 of my #WearStarWarsEveryDay fundraising campaign is all wrapped up, and we’ve got a wacky mix of Star Wars wear for this first full week of November. No donations for Collateral Repair Project in this time period, which is a bit of a bummer, but I know that with the election in the US, everyone’s mind has been elsewhere. Still, big thanks to Trina who donated a shirt worn this week, and Danielle who lent four of the items donned this week, along with Tyler who lent another wrist sweatband.

Every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project! This time around, we have six shirts from a variety of companies, including my Back to Jakku mashup shirt from Teepublic for Back to the Future Day.

Her Universe acquired by Hot Topic, to continue operating as a stand-alone brand

her-universe-logo2

Hot Topic has bought “certain assets” of Her Universe from founder Ashley Eckstein and the Araca Group, who have been running the brand since it began.

ashley-ecksteinIn a letter, Eckstein reassures fans that she’ll continue to oversee the company, and that products will continue to be available elsewhere. They’ll keep operating as a stand-alone brand, but the acquisition will allow for more plus sizes and more different kinds of fashion. Eckstein writes:

Your support from day one has been incredible and has meant so much to me! We were able to grow our t-shirt brand into a fashion, entertainment and publishing lifestyle brand in just a few years. However, as we continued to grow, I heard your cries for more and I was often left frustrated that we could not live up to your expectations. I’m beyond excited to share that this new chapter with Hot Topic will allow us to rise to those expectations!

“Ashley and Araca have built an incredible brand with a loyal customer base,” said Steve Vranes, CEO of Hot Topic in a release. “We look forward to supporting Her Universe in this new capacity.”

Both the Her Universe Fashion Show and Her Universe Press will continue. HerUniverse.com will be unavailable for a short time for the transition, but it will be back “in time for the holidays.”

Wear Star Wars Every Day - Week 40 - title card

Wear Star Wars Every Day kicked off its final quarter of 2016 (Can you believe that I’ve kept this project going for nine months now?) with the #ForceFriday podcast listener challenge and kept on going into October. In Week 40 of #WearStarWarsEveryDay, we raised $590 for Collateral Repair Project just on the GoFundMe. A huge round of gratitude for all our donors in this time period: Anonymous, Amanda, Amanda, Ari, Brian, Bruce, Cheston, Danielle, Jason, Joseph, Juan, Mediocre Jedi, Mike, Nick, Patty, and Swara! Also thanks to everyone who lent me some Star Wars apparel for this week: James, Donna, Mark, Nick, Bryan, Kai, and Paul! I’ve now worn 25 Star Wars garments borrowed from Paul, which means just me wearing his threads has raised more than $115 from our pledge makers.

Every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project! This week, we’ve got that sweet game-worn R2-D2 baseball jersey as well as a variety of shirts, including a Jawa coffee brand and the crazy Zuvio milk carton tee from Star Wars Celebration Europe! I guess that makes two shirts from the UK this week. This review for Week 40 covers September 30 to October 6 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.

Some of the Beltway Banthas supporters got on board with fundraising a bit early, but it will count toward the drive – Some big thanks to our donors in Week 39 on the GoFundMe for Collateral Repair Project: Anonymous, Stephen Kent. Also thanks to the podcast Skywalking Through Neverland, which donated one of the shirts I wore this week, and thanks to everyone else who lent me some Star Wars apparel for this week: Susan, Mark, Dawn, and Kristen!

Every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project – and Week 39 means I’ve worn a different Star Wars item now for 273 days straight! This week, we’ve got some classics from Club Jade and lightsabre.co.uk, a customized top from LucasArts, a DK book tour shirt, and a pair of toddler socks! Plus I visit Stongehenge. Well, of a sort.
