Hello All
I'm almost done my jawa costume and I'm wondering...
How many fundraising/charity events happen in Ontario?
What type of events is the Rebel Legion usually contacted for?
I ask because I'm not interested in comic convention events.
Is that usually what people go to in Ontario?

At cons like Fan Expo in Toronto, the Canadian Base and Canadian Garrison have a prominent booth at which we fund raise for Make A Wish through various ventures, such as Blast a Trooper, and photo ops with our replica props. Some event organizers make a contribution in our name to a charity for having us participate at their event. There are also smaller functions throughout the year that we are asked to support; some charitable, and others not. Sometimes LucasFilm invites us to appear at their events. The gamut is open. Once you are a full member, you see the events section.

thankyou for the quick response BobaFuss!
i wasn't aware that the comic con events also had a fundraising aspect to them.
Now I'm super motivated to get approved.
It's just hard to weather my costume when it's so friggin' cold outside Smile

It all depends on where you live in Ontario.

We here in Ottawa, usually do 4-5 troops (for charity) a month, as well as the aforementioned cons.
