Trish: "Wear Star Wars, Share Star Wars" Day

Geek Pride for Katie 2010 - Me & the kids
 Remember Katie?  The little girl who was made fun of for liking Star Wars?  Remember last year when we all wore our favorite Star Wars shirts in honor of her <--------?

Then we went out and bought Star Wars toys and made sure to mark them for a boy or GIRL, and donate them to a Christmas Toy Drive?

Well, now it's a tradition.  If you didn't get the opportunity to join in last year, you may join us on December 16th for the 2nd Annual "Wear Star Wars, Share Star Wars" Day.  (Last year we called it "Geek Pride for Katie").  For more information, visit Katie's mom's site -
