this is a place for Star Wars charity links like this one that are a FORCE for good in the world . From the home page " Welcome to the home page of R2-KT: the pink droid with the heart of gold. Built by the R2 Builders as a gift for Katie, the droid was her constant companion as she battled brain cancer. Today the droid is on a mission to spread awareness of pediatric illnesses, partner with charities to make a difference, and help spread the magic of hope. " http://www.r2kt.com/

I find that answer vague and unconvincing.

I love this thread! Is it just for R2-KT or also for other similar stories and charity or community projects?
(the thread title is just for R2-KT, and I am not sure)

Not really charity per se, but I remember a guy who was a huge SW fan and had cancer or something with only a few weeks to live before TFA and he wanted to see it before he died. JJ saw this and showed him the movie before it was released and the guy got to see it. I think he died soon after.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.
