We Star Wars fans know Jake Lloyd as the actor who played young Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode I. We also know him as a lovely young man who's done a lot for the franchise and for the fandom, and we were incredibly sad to hear of his mental health problems. Not least because - as in so many cases - it took a while for him to get the support he needed.
So we thought we would show our support for him, and for all other people suffering from mental illness, by raising money for the international mental health charity Basic Needs. We hope that this will both raise awareness of very stigmatized conditions, and help other people who suffer from mental illnesses.
Thanks for reading, and may the Force be with you.
