It's a Star Wars themed charity supporting UNICEF.
Disney, Lucasfilms and JJ Abrams want you to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII: Luke and Leia Aren't Related After All. Abrams announced in a special video shot from the set of the upcoming movie, that supporters of the newly created Star Wars: Force for Change charity will have an opportunity to win a cameo appearance in the upcoming film. According to a promotion blurb released with the video, Star Wars: Force for Change is a new charity initiative that will seek "creative solutions to some of the world's biggest problems". Proceeds from Star Wars: Force for Change will benefit UNICEF's Innovation Labs, which help children in need across the globe.
Disney has already pledged $1 million to Star Wars: Hope for Change, and Abrams is asking fans of Star Wars to contribute as well. Any fan who donates at least $10 will have the opportunity to win a trip to the set of Star Wars Episode VII and appear in the film as a background character. For more information, visit this site.
Oh, and check out the JJ Abrams video below, which features a live action alien puppet instead of one of Lucas's shitty CGI aliens. That alone brings a lot of new hope for Episode VII.
