A week or so ago the 501st Face Book page had a little competition to win one of win a Star Wars Celebration VI 501st 15th Anniversary trading card pack! . The competition was to write why you loved the 501st. This was my entry.

The 501st is an extraordinary, as well as rare, combination of people who love star wars and who come together for a common good, to have fun and work for worthy causes. Not only are we lucky enough to meet so many amazing people within the

501st, fellow fans, costume enthusiasts, and brilliantly talented artists, but we also get to share our passion and bring joy to other people from all walks of life, many of whom are less fortunate or gravely ill. We make a difference to so many lives, often without realizing it, by bringing a smile to a sick child’s face, or by reminding adults what it was like to be a child again. We get to share our joy by being joyful and that is why I love the 501st.

and I won.

today my prize arrived in the mail.

This is what i got:
