Lucas and Jedi Actors Sign Lightsaber for Charity

Posted by admin with 3 Comments

Star Wars actors have joined forces to get behind the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice by signing one of the most famous artifacts in the movie industry — a Master Replicas Luke Skywalker lightsaber!

Actors Samuel L. Jackson, Liam Neeson, and Ewan McGregor along with Star Wars creator George Lucas and stunt coordinator/swordmaster Nick Gillard have donned their signatures on this stunning display piece. The actors have also included their Star Wars character names. This truly unique prize will be auctioned on eBay starting today, October 26, with all proceeds being donated to Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice. Also being auctioned off for the hospice is a signed quad sheet poster for the movie Jumper, which has been autographed by Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell and Rachel Bilson.

James Mawhinney, a fan from Ireland who came up with the idea to collect the signatures and donate the lightsaber to the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice, is hopeful the auction will be a big success. “I hope that it exceeds my expectations and raises much-needed funds for the charity, as it is such a worthy and deserving cause.”

Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice offers a range of care services for children and young people living with a life-threatening illness, providing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, along with a range of support services for the children’s families.

“It’s truly exciting to have some of Hollywood’s biggest stars endorse this auction prize and get behind the Children’s Hospice,” says Claire Brown, Regional Fundraiser for the charity. “This item will undoubtedly raise the profile of Children’s Hospice and raise essential funds for our charity, which we are extremely grateful for.”

Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice wishes to thank George Lucas, Rick McCallum, Samuel L. Jackson, Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, Nick Gillard, Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson, Lucia & Olivia at United Agents, Toni Howard & Jennifer at ICM, Chloe Adams at Fox UK, Ardees, Hattie, Coco & Polly, Russ Williamson, www.Clonestores.com, Nick Tregenza, Maud Davis, Steve Sansweet, Laura Muhlhammer, Pablo Hidalgo, and Pete Vilmur for their contributions.
