May the Fourth Be With You!
Meet the 501st Legion– the world’s definitive imperial costuming organization. Not just fans of dressing up, this worldwide organization puts its resources to good use for volunteering, fund-raising and charity work. The Australian contingent will make an appearance tomorrow, May 5th at the Dreamworld Annual Stormtrooper Weekend. If you’re in the Coomera area, do drop by. It’s for a great cause, the Starlight Children’s Foundation
Meet Jacob French. You may already heard of him but chance are you won’t recognize him…if he’s not dressed in his stormtrooper costume. Jacob completed a 5000km walk across Australia from Perth to Sydney over the course of 9 months. Walking for 10 hours a day in the black and white battle armour he went through several pairs of shoes as he completed the trek. And the reason for this ‘stroll’? To raise awareness and $50,000 for the Starlight Foundation.
Jacob did better than that, he managed to raise over $90,000. You can still donate if you go to his page here
