You can own an exclusive piece of Star Wars memorabilia while also donating to a great cause. Lucasfilm has partnered up with Tipping Point to help out with relief efforts in areas of Napa and Sonoma ravaged by the recent California wildfire; proceeds will go to low-income families affected by the disaster. By bidding through IfOnly, fans have the chance to win one of three rare pieces of movie props from the new trilogy. 

Two props are First Order Stormtroopers helmets that were used in both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. One is signed by J.J. Abrams (Episode VII) and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy while the second is signed by Rian Johnson (Episide VIII) and Kennedy. The third piece of memorabilia is a porg marquette signed by Johnson and Kennedy.

​​​​You might need to do some gambling in Canto Bight to afford these objects as all of the auctions are currently over $1,000 each. In fact, the helmet signed by Johnson and Kennedy is at $5,000. The J.J. one is only $4,000 while the porg is the cheapest at the moment at $1,200.

All three auctions end on March 2, so you've still got some time to pool your funds together. Whatever the ending prices are, they probably won't compare to The Last Jedi's worldwide box office total of $1.3 billion.
