'Tis the season for giving... an animated Boba Fett lapel pin! Order now to ensure delivery before Christmas!
Washington DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) has inventoried and verified the last of their third bi-annual charity lapel pin and updated their store.
First announced during Memorial Day weekend, the 2008 pin features animated Boba Fett with DCSWCC's signature Washington Monument as his rocket, in honor of the 30th anniversary of his appearance in The Star Wars Holiday Special. Third in DCSWCC's series of high-quality cloisonne lapel pins, officially sanctioned by Lucasfilm Ltd., each pin is individually stamped and numbered on the back. Only 1000 were made.
All proceeds from the sales of this pin benefit the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Program, whose mission is to prevent burns and improve the quality of life for young burn survivors and their families in the Mid-Atlantic region. ACBC provides funding for research, annual therapeutic residential burn camps, and other year-round activities that support their physical, psychological, and social needs.

DCSWCC has a rich history of supporting children's charities in the Washington DC region. Their previous charity pins featured Yoda and Chewbacca, and raised almost $10,000 for DC Children's Hospital and The Children's Inn at NIH.
DCSWCC is one of the largest and most active collecting clubs in America, with over 50 members. The club meets monthly and holds special events such as socials and "Roadshow" appraisal events throughout the year. For more information, visit the club's website at http://www.dcswcc.org>
