A few days ago we told you about how a fan started a campaign on GoFundMe to raise money for Adam Driver’s non-profit, Arts in the Armed Forces, as a way to thank Adam for his portrayal in the Star Wars films.
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. Well, that goal was reached and Joonas delivered.
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.
You can see Adam’s message below, and you can view the GoFundMe here.

I decided to have some fun with the #BenSoloChallenge and created some music to accompany the video. Great job to everyone who raised money for Adam’s @AITAF!
