Star Wars: Mark Hamill being raffled off for Force For Change charity
No need to track down a one-of-a-kind BB unit to locate Luke Skywalker. The actor is offering up a chance to hang out for this week’s biggest fundraiser in the Force For Change charity drive.
Each week for the past month, Lucasfilm has released a new video featuring different prizes — a trip to Skellig Michael, where Luke was in exile; autographed stormtrooper helmets; a remote control BB-8 — but the latest has a personal touch.
This week’s top moneymaker will be eligible to win a trip to London in July for Star Wars Celebration Europe, and included in that is a chance to hang with Mark Hamill for any number of activities. He says whatever the winner decides to do has to be within the boundaries of good taste and not illegal.

So, that’s bad news if you were hoping to recruit Hamill for your heist. Good news if you just want to meet the original New Hope. (Suggestion: Ask him to tell you some Alec Guinness stories. They’re hysterical.)
The Force For Change campaign ends on “Star Wars Day” on May the 4th. The four select charities include the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in support of UNICEF Kid Power, American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Make-A-Wish.
