My name is Karen and my very first lifetime memory is a Star Wars memory. I was three years old in 1977 and remember going with my parents and younger brother to the hometown drive-in theater. I recall waking up from a nap in the back seat to see Princess Leia draw her blaster and she has been my hero ever since. I recall playing Star Wars on the preschool playground, pretending to be Leia sneaking up the ladder to where Darth Vader (aka Gabriel) sat, ready to ambush him. As the oldest of four kids growing up, major holidays often involved watching the original trilogy. I waited in line in a small beach town for the midnight opening of The Phantom Menace. Now that my siblings and I have families of our own, we were able to take our kids to see The Force Awakens on opening weekend and celebrate the revival of this wonderful saga. When Carrie Fisher says that "families do Star Wars together," she is talking about us.
My eight-year-old son and I are thrilled to join the Force for Change's effort to help raise funds for worthy causes, including our chosen cause, USA Unicef. We spend a lot of time in our home talking about how fortunate we are to live in this country and how important it is to help kids around the world have a better life and hope. Star Wars teaches us that ordinary people can be heroes if they step into the arena. I want my son to learn he has the power to be a positive force in this world! Thanks for considering a donation and may the Force be with you!
