TD-0013, writer and performer of the popular “A Different Point of View” segments and upcoming FarPoint Media distributed show “A Different Point of View: The Podcast” needs your help!

The surly Stormtrooper will be donning the armor and full regalia of the Imperial Sandtrooper and walking 6.1 miles in the Arizona sun to raise money to help fight Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The event will take place on Saturday, April 14, 2007, so he’ll be accepting donations until then.

empire.jpg Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that generally strikes people between the ages of 20 and 50. Symptoms can range from numbness in the limbs to paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatments are giving hope to those affected by the disease

“I do this every year because it´s something I can be proactive in,” TD-0013 said. “Most of the events I´m part of, the 501st is used as glorified ’set-pieces’, or giant action figures. These are all great events too, but I guess the MS Walk is my baby because I feel like I´m helping make a future change. I´m doing something to help cure and prevent it.”

If you would like to sponsor TD-0013 in this endeavor, go to “A Different Point of View”, or click on the black and orange banner to make a donation in his behalf on the secured National MS Society website.

It´s been something he´s said for years, and this time, it really is true.
