“Showing that good begets good, the fate and performance of Kylo Ren AKA Ben Solo in The Rise of Skywalker has inspired some charity-minded Star Wars fans to raise some serious cash — and Kylo actor Adam Driver is taking notice.
A GoFundMe titled Ben Solo’s Legacy has raised, as of this posting, a whopping $67,564 for Driver’s charitable organization, Arts in the Armed Forces. The charity focuses on free arts programming for military personnel and has earned the favor of these fans because of how good Driver is in his Star Wars trilogy.
‘Adam Driver’s portrayal of Kylo Ren/Ben Solo has been one of the greatest things to ever happen in the last three movies of the Star Wars saga,” the page reads. “As a way of showing gratitude and appreciation for his hard work and because we believe in the mission of AITAF – using art as a tool to more fully understand ourselves and heal – we at r/StarWarsLeaks have decided to set up this fundraiser.’”
