Mayhew Foundation 2021 Children’s Hospital Coin

100% of the net proceeds benefit the Peter Mayhew Foundation

This year the Peter Mayhew Foundation has had to find ways to innovate in a constantly changing world. Before the pandemic we worked very closely with the 501st and Rebel legion to deliver toys to children’s hospitals, we had local teams of volunteers that could help with disaster relief, we were able to do outreach at comic conventions and assist with other non-profit efforts. In the face of those doors closing, we’ve shifted to shipping toys directly to hospitals and building the infrastructure to do as much good as possible now that the world is starting to open back up.

With all that in mind, our new coin has an image of Peter in the cockpit and highlights our toy deliveries that have been the temporary solution to in-person hospital visits. The artwork for the coin was created by Kate Dehay, Peter’s daughter. It is also a very special year for our friends and family over at Lucasfilm. So, in honor of 50 years of Lucasfilm imagination, we’ve created a special edge text on the coin to tell the LFL story from their humble beginnings all the way to the present. (see below)

Follow the Peter Mayhew Foundation on Facebook for updates on our current programs. We’ll be out on the convention circuit soon helping get artists back into events and representing for the Foundation. Come by and say hello if we’re at an event near you. We’ll also be continuing our children’s hospital deliveries and shifting back to in-person events as it becomes possible. If you have a hospital you would like us to send toys to, a family that could use our help, or an organization that aligns with our goals, let us know.

Cheers,
Angie, Ryan, Kate & the Peter Mayhew Foundation Team
