In true keeping with the holiday spirit of giving, eFX Inc. and the 501st TK Project are auctioning off a serious Star Wars collectible in order to make some very deserving kids’ dreams come true.

This stormtrooper helmet is being sold in an eBay auction that started December 14th and will be available until just before Christmas. The entirety of the proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, helping children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses live out their wildest fantasies.

The helmet is a collectible in its own right, but it reaches Star Wars nerd salivation status by featuring signatures from George Lucas; actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Frank Oz, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Billy Dee Williams, Jeremy Bulloch and Warwick Davis; Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope and Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back producer Gary Kurtz; director, the late Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back); screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan (Empire and Return of the Jedi); and composer John Williams.

With only two days remaining, the bidding has already topped $10,000, proving that a love for the geeky really can make a difference. If you think you can best the top bidder, you can find the auction here.
