Twin Suns Foundation announces it will not be attending Celebration 2022 but does have plans to hold multiple fundraisers throughout the year.
This morning on Facebook, President of Twin Suns Foundation, Brian Borg, announced that the Twin Suns Foundation team has decided the organization will not be making an appearance at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, currently scheduled for May 2022. In the Facebook post, Mr. Borg mentioned several factors that lead to the team's decision not to attend. He also mentioned that the team had been discussing other plans for the year ahead, laying out a tentative schedule for three separate fundraisers to occur.
The first is expected to happen early in 2022. The next would be taking the place of the Organization's previously planned Celebration Anaheim appearance. The last was painted as a return to typical Twin Suns Foundation fundraisers of the past, allowing the year to culminate in a fundraiser for multiple donation locations.
Mr. Borg also mentioned that the two remaining donations of books, the funds of which were raised at the end of 2019, would be occurring in early 2022 as well. One of these events will be occurring at a school in Louisiana, the other at a location to be determined.
In response to accusations that Give Us Legends, the very entity that became Twin Suns Foundation, was behind an effort to bully and harass a Star Wars actress to the point where she left social media, we wish to make the situation crystal clear.
The accusations came about because a certain troll page, which we will not name as we do not wish to give them more attention than they already have received, claimed to be aligned with us and others within the Expanded Universe Movement. Despite a complete lack of proof, certain media entities have picked this story up and have not bothered to fact check a word, thus allowing our reputation to be increasingly damaged as these lies filter through various fan groups across the internet.
The Twin Suns Foundation Board of Directors and team members have decided that we need to make it 100% clear where Give Us Legends/Twin Suns Foundation stands on this issue and to protect our hard earned reputation.
Bullying and harassment have no place in the Star Wars community from any party, be if fan, media or otherwise. We have never and will never condone such actions as we have often been a victim of those actions ourselves in the past.
Our focus has been on getting Star Wars books into children's hospitals, libraries, Little Free Libraries and other similar such places where they are needed as often as possible.
We also assist the Expanded Universe Movement in its effort to reach the goal of obtaining a continuation of the Star Wars Legends timeline while also ensuring the continuation of Disney's new Star Wars timeline.
Simply stated, the actions we are wrongfully accused of run directly counter to our stated goals and our past actions.
We have always been and will continue to always be a positive force in the Star Wars fandom. We will not allow our name to be slandered with false accusations and libel.
