Mr. Mayhew also raised money using the Peter Mayhew Foundation which is devoted to the alleviation of disease, pain, suffering, and the financial toll brought on by life’s traumatic events. By providing available resources directly to deserving children and adults in need, the foundation assists numerous charitable organizations in promoting and boosting their effectiveness and giving support where needed.
We had the opportunity to meet Mr.Mayhew, and I must say from a personal standpoint, he was a pleasure to be around. We went to the first Geek’d Con ( a local comic convention http://geekdcon.com) Peter was the headliner. He was kind, patient and spoke something personal to everyone in line. I talked to him as he was signing a poster for me about The Peter Mayhew Foundation and let him know how cool I thought it was, that he had taken his fame, and used it for good. He told me that he felt a responsibility to share with others what he had been blessed with.
