The Empire Saber Guild is a not-for-profit, Lucasfilm recognized fan group along the lines of the 501st and Rebel Legions. They perform at all sorts of events and we’ve covered their work in the past, but recently they gave a very special performance for St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital.
St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital is one of only a handful of organizations around the country that is dedicated to providing intensive rehabilitation, specialized care, and education to children with special needs and life-limiting conditions. When Empire Saber Guild learned about the amazing work St. Mary’s was doing they reached out to help and perform for the kids.
Not only did they put on a great show for the kids, but they brought along a bunch of extra lightsabers and gave the kids a lesson.
Needless to say, it’s hard not to get choked up when watching the video. Check it out after the break…
