Wear Star Wars Every Day: Week 35 and August prize drawing winners!


Since August is not known for its holidays, I turned the last week of August into the #WearStarWarsEveryDay events and holidays week, celebrating some fun fan events and some random holidays, none of which are in August! Plus we have some nice donations to report! Big thanks to Jennifer, Ian, Tim, and an anonymous donor for helping us raise over $80 in the past week, pushing us up to almost $2,600 raised for Collateral Repair Project.

Thanks to Trina for her donation of a St. Patrick’s Day Star Wars shirt! Also, thanks to everyone who has lent me apparel seen this week: Anastasia, Mark, Christian, Dartanian, James, and Paul! Remember, every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledgemakers will chip in $4.65! This week, we’ve got a piece of a Rebels costume, a Christmas sweater, two shirts related to theme park Star Wars events and more! This review for Week 35 covers August 26 to September 1 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.

August prizes 2

And now to announce the winners of the August prize drawings:

  • The uncorrected advance copy of Star Wars: Ahsoka goes to Jennifer Q. And as a special bonus, this copy is signed by the author, E. K. Johnston, whom I met at Salt Lake Comic Con.
  • The Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 Crew shirt goes to Maliha S.
  • The copy of Star Wars: Aliens of the Galaxy by Jason Fry goes to Tim L.
  • The Rusty Droid bottle opener from Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 goes to no one :(. To be eligible, all one had to do is both have liked the Wear Star Wars Every Day facebook page by the end of August and shared one of the August daily photos on their own FB page, and according to my notification tracking, no one did both. So I guess I’ll save the prize for a future prize drawing.

Thanks to everyone who has supported Wear Star Wars Every Day so far, both our one-time donors and our per-day pledge makers. If you’d like to chip in at a dime a day or a quarter per day (or more), make your pledge at the per-day pledge form and you can choose whether to support the project for the entire year, or just start at the beginning of September. Or you can just make a one-time or a recurring monthly donation at GoFundMe.com/WearStarWars2016.

Get more info on what Wear Star Wars Every Day is all about, or make a donation or a per-day pledge. While each day I continue my project, another $4.65 is donated by our pledge makers, but I’d love to get that total up to $5.00 even (or higher!) for the last quarter of 2016.

Wear Star Wars Every Day: Weeks 28, 29, & 30


It’s been a busy few weeks for me, but rest assured, #WearStarWarsEveryDay is still going strong! Now that I’ve gotten to recover a bit from the marathon of Celebration Europe and San Diego Comic-Con, I’ve made the recap video for the past three weeks. We’ve got a ton of t-shirts, a random polo shirt, a Jar Jar baseball jersey and First Order soccer jersey, and even a dress in this batch of wear for charity. Yup, I show some leg. Big thanks to Brian, Sam, and Walt for donating shirts (all at Celebration Europe).

Wear Star Wars Every Day hits the six-month mark! Week 26


Can you believe that I’ve now completed six whole months of #WearStarWarsEveryDay? That’s a different Star Wars apparel item worn every day for the past twenty-six weeks – 182 days of shirts, hats, costumes, outerwear, even a skirt and a pair of sweatpants. And there’s still more coming!

To mark the six month point, I decided to wear a week of just Her Universe clothing, as a way to highlight the different programs of Collateral Repair Project that help empower women, including their Hope Workshop and their programs funded by Dining For Women. And so we go a whole seven days, turning from the light side with Yoda and Ahsoka, and slipping to the dark side with Mara Jade and the Empire! One shirt is mine, and the High Commander Cardigan borrowed from Mrs. Jawa, and the rest are loaned by Margaret Mays (4 items) and Dunc! Plus we got a donation – Jennifer, one of our per-day pledgemakers, got her bimonthly donation in ahead of time! Clothing art by Tsuneo Sanda, Dave Filoni, Cat Staggs and Nathan Hamill. This review for Week 26 covers June 24 to June 30 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.

Thanks to everyone who has supported Wear Star Wars Every Day so far! There’s a lot of people who had donated to Collateral Repair Project, with more than $1,900 raised in the first six months, over $1,300 of which is via the GoFundMe. And each day I continue my project is another $4.65 donated by our pledge makers. I’d love to get that total up to $5.00 even (or higher!) for the second half of 2016. If you’d like to chip in at a dime a day or a quarter per day (or more), make your pledge at the per-day pledge form and you can choose whether to support the project for the entire year, or just start at the beginning of July.

Also, thanks to Fen, PG, Shannon, Todd, Margaret, Tony, Paul, and Mediocre Jedi for all their lending of different items of clothing I show off this week.

Wear Star Wars Every Day: Week 23


Week 23 of #WearStarWarsEveryDay gets us in a summer mood! Thanks to Todd, James, Anastasia, Paul, Margaret, and Mediocre Jedi for all the different tops I show off this week. Which looks best as a summer fashion? Some Jedi armor from The Old Republic? a nice Pacific Sun aloha shirt at LEGOLAND? a cute women’s rayon Rey raglan? or some cool 501st Legion threads? This review for Week 23 covers June 3 to June 9 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.

What’s the news on fundraising? Nothing this week, but overall, thanks to everyone’s support, I can account for more than $1,800 being donated to Collateral Repair Project, with over $1,200 donated via GoFundMe. Can you help me reach $2,000 by the end of the month? Why not chip in $20 to get me to the milestone of 6 months completed! Just $50 is enough to provide a family of four with food for a month!

Let’s keep that streak going as I aim to complete six months by the end of June! Why not chip in $20 to celebrate this milestone. $20 is enough to provide a mattress to a refugee.
