I am writing this letter less than a month before the premiere of the latest Episode of Star Wars. A great part of the World is anticipating this day, and breathlessly wondering what new adventures have been given to Luke, Leia or Han into, and who are the new protagonists of "The Force Awakens". It is an opportunity to inform you about charity event linked directly with Star Wars that we have organized last year in Poznan, one of Poland's major cities. My name is Krystian Włodarczak (you may pronounce it Christian Voo-oh-dahr-chuck) and I work for Stowarzyszenie NA TAK (a NGO whose name is difficult to translate). 'Association STAY YES" would be a rough try. The "NA TAK" supports people with intellectual disability and their families. We work for positive change, for a better life for our wards. For 26 years we have been supporting people with intellectual disability, which includes daily physical and psychological therapy. Each year we organize a summer camps for wards under our care. They look forward to it, and so do their parents, because it is also their time to have a break. In order to make ends meet and organize camps for over 200 people with intellectual disability we need approximately 100,000 Polish Zloty (aprox USD 26,000). Last year Darth Vader has joined to support our event, much to our surprise. His unexpected appearances in various parts of Poznan (May/June 2014) helped to spread the message. The major Polish media have shown this in their news reports. We collected the desired amount of money in a surprisingly short period of time. Thanks to that we were able to accomplish our vacation plans. I can imagine that you receive a lot of requests like that, but since one year I have a dream. It would be a great honor if such an amazing person like You send greetings to our wards. Perhaps there is a chance to record a short clip with few words of support for our cause or provide us with signed pictures, posters or similar Star Wars promoting materials? This could allow us to make an impact in European media. And above all it would be a fantastic Christmas gift for our wards. I would appreciate if you could spread our cause and mention the name of our organization and Lord Vader, who is supporting us for unknown reasons, during the interviews related to "The Force Awakens". In the attachment I send you pictures from our actions. Our wards and us - caregivers, will be grateful for every word for Stowarzyszenie Na Tak.
May the Force be with you
