The tale for this event is as legendary as Star Wars itself when back on May 4th, 1979, the phrase was first used the day that Margaret Thatcher took office as UK prime minister. The Conservative party allegedly placed an ad in the London Evening News which read,"May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations."
To celebrate Star Wars day, Star Wars: Force for Change has recently announced Roar For Change - a global challenge in support of UNICEF. The initiative invites fans and families to share their own version of Chewbacca’s iconic roar.
For each public post, like, or share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that includes #RoarForChange between May 3 – 25, 2018, Star Wars: Force for Change U.S. will donate $1 to UNICEF USA, up to $1 million. Funds will be used to support UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children around the world.
Check out special Roar for Change videos from Hasbro, Funko and from the set of Solo: A Star Wars Story (which opens May 25th) below!
