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.

 

 

The Year in Review – SWR #26

Play

Welcome to this, the last 2011 episode of The Star Wars Report!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This was a very special episode of The Star Wars Report; we discussed how we felt about this past year, and where we’ve come from, once we were The Bothan Report, now we are The Star Wars Report! This is a very free-form episode, and it runs a bit longer than normal, an hour and forty-ish minutes. We had quite a turn out in the chat, which was a very pleasant surprise! We’d imagined that there wouldn’t be that many people, it being so close to Christmas. Thanks for that guys, you’re always fun to talk to. =)

We talked about how it’s great to be members of the Star Wars fan community, a community which bands together to help such children like Baby Leah, a little girl who has been sick for most of her short life, and Katie, a girl who was bullied for liking Star Wars.

We also talked a bit more about the Star Wars expanded universe podcast that will be joining us in January, Star Wars Beyond the Films. You can hear a more in-depth description of Star Wars Beyond the Films and how it came to be on the twenty third episode of Nathan Butler’s podcast, the EU Review.

Our sponsor for this episode is Toy Hutt! Mark was delighted to find that Toy Hutt has a figure of K’Kruhk, a bit more on the expensive side, this figure of K’Kruhk would make Mark really happy if anyone is wondering what to get him for Christmas! Haha

We also talked about how The Star Wars Report has changed, and all our favorite Star Wars items that have come out in the past year, how we’ve changed as Star Wars fans, how much we adored The Hobbit trailer, (yes really, we did) and decided we’d discuss it in the next episode. We also read several emails we got from listeners, which we always love doing, and responded to them.

Thank you so much guys, we’ve loved doing the Star Wars Report, we’ve loved talking to everyone on Facebook, Twitter, via email, and in our live show chat room!

“Twilight is upon me and soon night must fall. That is the way of things……”

ON TO 2012!
