We aren’t all crabby Sebulba types. Some of us are kind-hearted Amidala types, wanting to bring some good into this world.
So ditch your Jabba ways and donate to a great cause, because doing so may just net you an unbelievable opportunity.
Omaze is again granting wishes in more ways than one. The company bills itself as giving, “once-in-a-lifetime experiences and exclusive merchandise to support nonprofits around the world.” It’s doing just that with a Star Wars spotlight that will aid either UNICEF or the Starlight Children's Foundation.
The amount you give determines how many entries you get towards winning the grand prize. It also means an opportunity to fill your nerd lair with some amazing Star Wars merchandise.
But first, the grand prize. The winner will get to bring a friend along to Skywalker Ranch, which is where a great deal of the magic to create this universe took place. It also happens to be a bit more pleasant than Uncle Owen’s farm. There, you will get your own screening of “Star Wars: A New Hope” and a tour of what is essentially the franchise’s palace.
You also get to tour the set of the upcoming Han Solo joint, which will give you some semblance of the character’s origins well before any of us mere mortals.

Lastly, you will get to go to the premiere and after party of this year’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
All of this essentially makes you forever one with the force.
As for the merchandise, there are items such as private screenings, signed prints and epic posters available.
Each donation amount grants you various levels of entries as well. For example, $500 is good for 5,000 entries and an original series poster set.
The best part is that even if you strike out on the grand prize, you will feel good knowing that you brought a modicum of light to the force in giving to one of either two great charities.
UNICEF has been helping children in developing countries since 1946 while the Starlight Children’s Foundation helps provide “seriously ill children the best in entertainment, education and one-of-a-kind experiences.”
The entire thing is sweeter than the embrace from a jubilant Ewok.
