The Mandalorian Mercs exist to not only wear cool armor, but also as a charity organization to help our communities. One of the most basic missions when it comes to charity it finding out the good work that is already being done in your hometown or community and finding out if the Star Wars costuming community can help out in any way. This also goes back to one of the most basic missions of a Mando scout tasked with doing “recon” (in other words – gathering information).

 

Charity Challenge 1: Information Gathering About Nearby Charities

  • Novice Level:  Find out about one or two charity organizations in or near your hometown or community. You’ll probably also want to know if they are part of a national group (all over the country) or are mainly local (a community group? affiliated with a religious group?). Find out what they do and who they help. Send your progress about what you’ve learned to mythosaur@verdikacorp.com and remember to include your Verd’ika Mandalorian Name for credit.

 

  • Journeyman Level:  Find out about three or four charity organizations in or near your hometown or community. Find out if they are part of a national group (all over the country) or are mainly local (a community group? affiliated with a religious group?). Find out what they do and who they help. Find someone to talk to in these organizations. Find out if they are aware that they can get Star Wars costumed characters to show up to events (the Mandalorian Mercs, the Rebel Legion, the 501st, etc.). Send your progress about what you’ve learned to mythosaur@verdikacorp.com and remember to include your Verd’ika Mandalorian Name for credit.

 

  • Expert Level:  Find out about four or more charity organizations in or near your hometown or community. Find out if they are part of a national group (all over the country) or are just local (a community group? affiliated with a religious group?). Find out what they do and who they help. Find out if they are aware that they can get Star Wars costumed characters to show up to events (the Mandalorian Mercs, the Rebel Legion, the 501st, etc.). Find out who in that organization is the best point of contact for additional information or to plan events. If they would like to have Star Wars costumed characters show up at their events, send what you’ve learned to your nearest Mandalorian Mercs group or Star Wars costuming group. Send your progress about what you’ve learned to mythosaur@verdikacorp.com and remember to include your Verd’ika Mandalorian Name for credit.
