I am sending an urgent appeal to my brothers and sisters in the Midwest Base. We need volunteers to help bring a smile to the face of a child at the end of his life journey. Kyle's family has agreed to celebrate his birthday early because he is terminally ill and it is unlikely he will survive to his actual 10th birthday. He loves Star Wars and we're rallying the troops.

We are looking for volunteers who are willing to make the trip to the Twin Cites this Saturday to appear in costume at Kyle's party. We have about 7-8 folks confirmed so far. Anyone is welcome to crash at my home if they need a place to stay. So far we have four Jedi, Boba Fett, Vader, Clone and me (Endor Trooper). The party is at an elemetary school from 1-3 PM.

I realize this is super short notice and even most people in town here cannot attend due to other commitments. But if anyone is available and you would like to attend, this is a very special event.

Thank you!

This is so frustrating. I actually could make this trip, but I am still on the mend from my herniated disk. I will however post it on the Midwest base forums for you. I know allot of the guys/ gals do not visit this site enough to catch it in time.

I had already commited months ago to volunteering at National Public Lands day for the Forest Preserve Dist. of Will County in the AM and to the R2 Builder's gathering in the afternoon...

Crying or Very sad

The event went well and Kyle was definitely happy to see us.

Here's a TV news story from the event. Be sure to watch the video in the upper right corner.
