Dear Star Wars Fan,
On behalf of the entire cast and crew of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, thank you for contributing to UNICEF Innovation Labs and programs through Star Wars: Force for Change!
Because of your incredible support and a $1 million contribution from Disney to launch the campaign, we raised an additional $4.26 million that will now directly benefit UNICEF's innovative, lifesaving programs that support children across the globe.
Because of YOU:
- More children will have access to high-quality educational materials thanks to the portable, solar-powered learning kits being built in China, Uganda and Burundi.
- More children will be reunited with their families after an emergency, thanks to a mobile phone application developed in South Sudan and used in the Philippines.
- More families will receive rapid, critical medical test results for their infants through text messaging solutions created in Zambia.
This cause means the world to us, and we are so grateful for your generosity and support. Thank you!
May the Force be with You!
J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy
