It's always been my dream to bring joy to others through my love for all things Star Wars. I recently had the opportunity to visit Star Wars Celebration in Orlando and realized their were literally thousands of fans who have passionately taken up the call of being "Bad Guys, Doing Good."
These "Bad Guys Doing Good" are known as the 501st Legion. "...The Legion is an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work..." On June 1st, 2017 the 501st were able to raise $150K in only 10 months which fully funded their Make-A-Wish Endowment!
With your help I can fulfill my dream of joining the 501st Legion with a full featured, screen accurate, and authentic Replica 'The Empire strikes Back' Stormtrooper armor from RS Prop Masters.
I have a number of contacts in local hospitals here in South Florida and would jump at the opportunity to visit young patients in full costume. If fully funded, every penny will go to securing my armor and keeping it secured in a professional case.
Thank you for taking a moment to read about my dream, please consider making my dream a reality.
May the Force be with you!
