Adam Driver received word of the GoFundMe which fans set up to thank Driver after his role in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and have raised over $67,000 for Driver’s non-profit, Arts in the Armed Forces, at the time of publication.
The campaign has reached its initial goal and increased to $75,000, where Joonas Suotamo, who plays Chewbacca in the new Star Wars films, stated that he’d do the #BenSoloChallenge (where people reenact the lightsaber/shrug scene) if $75,000 was raised.
Arts in the Armed Forces was founded by Driver, and his non-profit brings high-quality arts programming to active duty service members, veterans, military support staff and their families around the world free of charge.
