BB-8 and Oscar Isaac detail new Star Wars: Force for Change charity campaign

Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars BB-8 and Oscar Isaac have detailed the latest phase in the ongoing Star Wars: Force for Change charity campaign.

In a video created for the initiative that sees Star Wars: Force for Change matching up to $1 million in donation made by fans to four charities, the pair can be seen chatting about this week’s exclusive campaign.

The first four people to donate or raise at least $500 for the partner charities will now have the chance to win a Star Wars prize pack including a BB-8 powered by Sphero and signed by The Force Awakens director, J.J. Abrams himself.

Additionally, the top fundraiser this week has the chance to win a tour of LucasFilm in San Francisco, with a screening of any Star Wars movie of their choice during their visit.

The month-long Star Wars: force for Change campaign will lead up to Star Wars Day on May 4th.

Fans and fund-raisers will be able to donate through CrowdRise.com/ForceForChange to the four charities, the US Fund for UNICEF, American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Make-A-Wish.

All participants who enter will also have the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Ireland and Skellig Michael, the location of the final scene of The Force Awakens.
