STAR WARS PLEA – CAN YOU HELP ?

  Hi my name is Jonathan Lucia-wright ( J-J ) I run a volunteer service with my wife enabling 
  people with a dual sensory loss ( both Deaf AND blind ) and other 
  disabillities to access entertainment and popular culture. 
I use 
  days out and experiences to create memories and smiles and 
  motivation and hopefully encourage the people that i work with to 
  live life rather than just exist. 
My previous line of work was in 
  the entertainment business for 13 years as a children’s 
  entertainer/comic – so my approach to this line of work is somewhat 
  unconventional! In 2003 i decided to put my talents to better use 
  and changed my audience – a decision which I am very proud of. 
I now 
  use comedy / humor to help stimulate and motivate the people that I 
  work with using toys, puppets, Magic and objects of refferance and 
  other various techniques. I have clowned with Deafblind people all 
  over the world – Russia, Texas, Holland I also was invited on a 
  clown trip with patch Adams (you may have seen the film?) Clowning 
  around in hospitals, psychiatric wards and orphanages. It was a life 
  changing experience, and its amazing what difference laughter can 
  make. 

  90% of the people I work with cannot see OR hear. Their ages 
  range from 15 through to 85. Some have been deaf or blind from 
  birth, while others have gradually lost their sight or hearing with 
  old age, or for various other reasons. As a result of their loss, 
  they are unable to access information in the way we do, through 
  newspapers, television ,theatre or radio – so usually the most 
  simple of things go undiscovered for years – or never at all. I use 
  my talents to enable my service users to access any form of 
  entertainment which they once loved and now sadly cannot access. 
  Using the aid of sign language, props, toys, meet and greets and 
  touch tours my clients can enjoy an evening as much as anybody else

  
  Why i am writing is i am in the process of collecting a few star 
  wars props, masks etc as i have been doing various 
  sessions where i have been interpreting the star wars films with a 
  group of other interpreters and we stop along the way and use toys, 
  objects of reference to help explain the story We have has some fantastic support from the U.K Garrison
  plus some amazing opportunitys give to us by  Lucas film
where we was aloud to feel REAL PROPS.
God bless David Iskra
