As an online community we decided at a very early stage to focus much of our collective energy towards helping others. For our first few years we supported Mencap. Once that campaign ended we then decided to divert our attention towards supporting the very worthy cause of Help for Heroes; a charity that helps those wounded in combat.

To help raise money for Help for Heroes, The New Jedi Order holds regular auctions on ebay through which donations can be made directly to the charity. We also hold other fund raising activities and "Troops" so be sure to regularly check the Forum and our Events page to check on what we're up to and how you can help.

"What is H4H all about? It’s about the blokes, our men and women of the Armed Forces. It’s about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It’s about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It is about Ben, its about Steven and Andy and Mark, its about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes."

The charity Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007 in response to the desire of ordinary people to do something practical to help our wounded servicemen and women. As individuals we are powerless to prevent war and we feel helpless that we are unable to stop our men and women from being killed and wounded. By joining together as Help for Heroes, we are doing something practical to help; we are doing our bit.

So, if you want to donate to Help for Heroes, please visit their donations page.
