Campaign: Star Wars: Force for Change
Hometown: Boulder, CO
EXPERIENCE DATE: 2014
HERE’S HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN:
D.C. Barns truly won the experience of a lifetime: He flew to London to visit the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He witnessed the filming of a battle scene complete with aliens, stormtroopers and massive explosions. But even that’s not the half of it. Because D.C. GOT TO ACTUALLY BE IN THE MOVIE. He’s fully dressed in costume as an alien, but he’s in the scene at Maz Kanata’s castle. Check out the video to see more from his unforgettable day.
It was a rollercoaster. It just kept going up, and up, and up. It was the coolest thing EVER.
/ D.C., WINNER /
FUN FACTS ABOUT D.C.

WHO THEY HELPED
By acting as a Force for Change, your contribution to support UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and other innovative work for children will fund dozens of life-changing projects like these in communities across the globe: portable, solar-powered learning kits to ensure underprivileged children have access to relevant, high-quality educational materials; mobile phone application that helps reunite children with their families after an emergency; a text messaging solution in Zambia that helps families receive infant medical test results from clinics, in half the time, through mobile phones.
