Leia’s Journey for Baby Leah

Hey everyone!

I’m here to tell you about a fund raiser for Baby Leah, a little girl who’s been very sick for most of her short life. If you haven’t heard Baby Leah’s story, CNN covered it here.

Our good friend Chris “Hoth Ice Planet” Smith began this adventure, and is in the process of working on it as you read this. Basically, he’s sending a Princess Leia figure around the world to see different people and places to raise awareness, and hopefully funds, for Baby Leah and her family! Check it out, and if you want to be a destination for the Princess Leah figure, email Chris with his contact information at the bottom of this write up.

 

Leia’s Journey for Baby Leah

Hi,

I am Princess Leia in my Endor combat outfit, and I am traveling the world to help raise awareness and money for “Baby Leah” and her family.

Here is the personal blog of her family where you can keep up to date on her well being.

I have started a Facebook page to house my trip around the world in photos.

My trip starts off at the home of the “Sarlacc Pit” podcast in Memphis, TN. I got to tour Memphis!!! Then I stopped off at Graceland, Memphis bridge, B.B. King’s on Beale Street and the Martin Luther King’s Museum. Where will I go next? Stop by my Facebook page to keep up with my trip.

If you want me to stop off in your city or country, then let me know on our Facebook page or shoot me an email at hothiceplanet@galacticbinder.com. I am sooooo excited to get this trip started. Day one was a blast. Next stop LA.

If you would like to make a donation to “Baby Leah” and her family go here.

 

 

Signed Star Wars Clone Armor Helmets to be Auctioned!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FAN DAYS 2011 STAR WARS HELMET EBAY AUCTIONS ANNOUNCED

Los Angeles, CA – November 15, 2011

 

On Black Friday, November 25, 2011 the “Fan Days 2011” autographed Star Wars Clone Helmets will be put up for auction on ebay at 5 p.m. Pacific Time. The auctions will be listed under the seller name JaingSMandoMercsPO and will run for 10 days. All proceeds from the auctions will benefit “Princess Leah” and her family. This is your opportunity to own a rare, unique piece of Star Wars memorabilia.

The Republic Commando and the Animated Clone Trooper helmets were made and donated by Nick Bishop and his Thylacine Squad of the 501st in Tasmania.

Over 45 Star Wars actors, directors, editors, writers, artists and more signed each helmet. To document and authenticate the signatures, a photograph was taken of each person signing. These photos have been made into two photo collage posters and will be a part of the ebay auctions.

Kevin Ward of the Clan Murraan Mandalorian Mercs and his wife, Kelli, created one of a kind stands for each helmet. The base of the stands are engraved with the logos of four costuming groups who have been instrumental in helping raise awareness and donations for Princess Leah. They are: 501st Legion, Mandalorian Mercs, Rebel Legion and The Dark Empire.

A video documenting the signing of the Fan Days 2011 helmets created by Taylor Andriotis, aka LadyVader66, is available for sharing and viewing online via youtube.

Baby Leah Esquenazi and her parents, Zev and Frani, have spent most of the last 8 months in the PICU at UCLA hospital. “Princess Leah” as she has come to be known in the Star Wars community was struck by a mysterious illness that causes uncontrollable movement and breathing problems. She has had multiple surgeries including the removal of cataracts in both eyes and has to spend much of her time on a ventilator. Over 60 doctors, hundreds of tests and $2.5 million later, little Leah continues to struggle for survival.
