May the 4th be with you! Today this is something all fans of Star Wars will be saying since it is Star Wars Day! Stars from the movies have also joined!
Every year on May 4th Star Wars fans celebrate one of the most popular movie franchises of all time. As you can guess, the phrase comes as a play on the popular “May the Force be with you”. It is one of the reasons why this day has been chosen as Star Wars Day.
This year the day is even more special. Stars from the movie, including Daisy Ridley, have joined a special cause called Force for Change. It will gather donations for several charities throughout the day. Among them are the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in support of UNICEF Kid Power, American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Make-A-Wish.
As such, you can celebrate Star Wars Day with a donation at CrowdRise.com/ForceForChange. All participants who enter will also have a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Ireland, including Skellig Michael along the Wild Atlantic Way, the location of the dramatic final scene from The Force Awakens.
As you can expect, there will also be quite a lot of deals of Star Wars toys and plush toys. A lot of retailers and companies will be offering special deals on Star Wars merchandise so be on the look out.
One we can tell you right now is Build-A-Bear. They are having a 10% off each second stuffed animal you buy after an initial purchase of a Star Wars themed teddy bear. Just be sure to use the promo code “STARWARS10US” to take advantage of this deal before May 11th. They’ll even have special May the 4th t-shirt that will fit your plush creations so you can celebrate every year.
