The “Force to Change” is with you. And the folks behind Star Wars want to sweeten the deal.

According to USA Today, today marks the official kickoff of Lucasfilm charity Star Wars: Force of Change‘s “Past, Present, and Future” fundraising initiative, which this year is supporting UNICEF and the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Running for four weeks and in coordination with the 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie, the Omaze contest allows fans to enter with their $10 donations (with increments of $5 from there) for the chance to win three grand prizes:

(1) A night at the Skywalker Ranch in Marin, California (with flights and four-star hotels included) – check it out here.

(2) A visit to the set of the new young Han Solo movie, which is currently still in production, and have a chance to appear in it.

(3) Attend the premiere and afterparty of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

And one randomly selected fan will win all three.

Fans can donate/enter here. For more on the initiative, watch the video below, starring recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-stars, Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley.
