We proudly promote the work of R2-KT here on the site, sharing news of their patch and coin releases and their latest arrives, bringing together R2-KT and The Child wearing their masks and socially distancing and hugging with the Force.
Star Wars fans, here’s hoping this finds you doing well and staying strong during this strange time.
The Stay Safe patches we did last month were our way of celebrating unity in spite of separation and the message have that no one is truly alone. Thanks to you, we were able to raise $1982 (as of May 19th) for the United Way Covid-19 World Relief Fund! Most of that has been paid out but we are sending out supplemental donations as the last patches are sold.
Thank you so much for helping us help others at a time when it’s needed most.
Many of you have asked if there would be a challenge coin related to this campaign. Well, artist Juan Jose Matamoros heard you and adjusted the design. The patch was designed to show separation by how we positioned the characters, but the coin makes it even more clear: R2-KT on one side, the Child (aka Baby Yoda) on the other. Separated, but never far apart – because with love (like the Force) we are all still connected!
* Coins are 1.5″ in diameter with a silver metallic finish and made to the same standards as all our challenge coins.
* Each coin is $7 (or $5 each for orders of five or more).
* Shipping is just $4 for every five coins ordered in the U.S.
* International shipping is $8 for up to five coins. For orders of more than five coins, please email us how many coins you want and we can get you a quote on cost of shipping.
* Pre-order now by sending payment via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org
* Please use the Goods & Services option when paying (to keep PayPal happy)
* Coins will ship in late June / early July
Once again we benefit the United Way Covid-19 World Relief Fund
