Land a role in the new Star Wars movie just for donating to UNICEF

Admittedly, we’re pretty stoked about the next instalment in the Star Wars saga — specifically seeing the old cast back in action. J.J. Abrams announced the Star Wars: Force for Change initiative from Episode VII’s set in Abu Dhabi this morning. Abram’s company Bad Robot, coupled with Disney and Lucasfilm will use Force for Change to help bring creative solutions to some of the world’s greatest problems. The initiative’s kick off would see your $10 entry fee go to Unicef’s Innovation Labs and Programs and the winner get a role in Episode VII. Yeah, you’ll get to flown to England with a friend, become J.J.’s VIP guest, get hair, make-up and costume sorted for your role. Have deeper pockets? Using the Omaze fundraising platform, entrants can choose all kinds of entry points and get gifts — think Kickstarter for charities. For $5k you get 500 chances to win and a replica lightsaber, for a cool $50K, 5,000 entries and a chance to see the film ahead of the rest of humanity. This first round in what we hope will be an ongoing charity saga, starts today and runs until July 18.
