Want even more incentive to donate to Wear Star Wars Every Day this August! We’ve got another book prize added to this month’s prize drawings! Watch the video to see what it is! One copy of this mystery book will be given to a random person who donates to Collateral Repair Project via the GoFundMe in August. This is on top of the previously announced prize drawings, including the advance reader copy of Ahsoka, by E. K. Johnston, the Celebration Europe 2016 crew shirt, and the Celebration Europe 2016 Rusty Droid bottle opener.
Great big thanks to our sole GoFundMe donor this week, Dennis, who heard about Wear Star Wars Every Day from my guest appearance on episode 57 of the Coffee with Kenobi podcast (where I also talk about Bloodline and Aftermath: Life Debt). Additionally, Skywalking Through Neverland also had me on their recent podcast to give an update on this fundraising campaign, so big thanks to the fine folks at Coffee with Kenobi and Skywalking Through Neverland for their support in helping me spread the word about Collateral Repair Project and Wear Star Wars Every Day.
And thanks to everyone who has lent me apparel that I’ve worn for week 33 – all seven articles of clothing were lent from supporters: Donna, Anastasia, Paul, Margaret, James & Mark! Remember, every day i keep the streak of wearing a different Star Wars apparel item going, that’s another $4.65 pledged from my donors! This week, we’ve got stuff from the Rebel Legion at Celebration VI, shirts from Japan and Malaysia, and a throwback to one of the first Star Wars museum exhibitions. This review for Week 33 covers August 12 to August 18 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, both our one-time donors and our per-day pledgemakers. 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 September. Or you can just make a one-time or monthly donation at GoFundMe.com/WearStarWars2016. Remember, if you donate in August, you might be eligible to win the prize drawings for an ARC of the upcoming Ahsoka novel, a Star Wars Celebration Europe Crew shirt, and more!
