Debreifing:
Teleton is Costa Rica's mayor foundraiser organized by Club Activo 20 -30 a mayor charity organization in Costa Rica. Each yeah Teleton raises money for improvement of Costa Rica's National Children Hospital. This the main goal was to collect 500 millons colones (about $US 950 000)

501st Legion and Rebel Legion members took part each year, since 2007.

This was our third Teleton in a row as whole Star Wars band of brothers, the Imperial and Rebels, Republic and Separatits make a truce for this event.

We also were feature with a special note at Teleton's main web page

Proir to the main event we took a special TV interview about the costumed Star Wars movement in Costa Rica (specially the 501st and Rebel Legion) on Chanel 13. Here's the video

We had a little help from our freinds from Harry Potter Costa Rica Fan Club and Costa Rica's Tolkien Society with their costumed members

Our deployement begun at 8:00hrs, we patrolled the area of the event with our piggy bank collecting donations in cash from the audience of the event while we took pictures and greeting from little kids.

The event ran smooth with no mayor problems until 1600hrs when we finished our deployment, tired and burn out, but great satisfaction we were able to help out those kids at the Trauma Unit of Costa Rica's National Children Hospital.

The Good:
This was the mayor deployment of both Legions unit ever, almost all of ours brothers and sister were deployed. Sadly due to work schelude we had some downs.

The Bad:
Too much heat and sun to battle with, but we made beside that....

The ugly:
Sadly some of the TV transmitions hosts called us (storm and clone troopers), the Star Wars Robots. At least they recognized us and the franchise Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing


As usuall here's some pics...
