The Canadian government will be matching donations until December 31st, 2015 so I thought i’d link a few sites where donations can be made :

Force Friday ?

Apparently this was the day a lot of merchandise was going to be released from the new film. But I hadn’t heard of it until today for some reason.

You can access some good deals at the Star Wars Shop and new Star Wars shop at today. But the soundtrack to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will only be available on December 18th, 2015.
