Jay Shepard is a guy I have a lot of time for. Not only is he an expert on his chosen field of Star Wars books and comics, as evidenced by his Jedi Journals podcast, he’s also gracious in defeat when being white-washed at pool and is an all-round good guy. And here’s the proof, not that it’s needed, as Jay is championing a great charity, the Mitochondrial Disease Action Committee.

Read on and please contribute. Over to Jay.

Please check out my Clone Wars art auctions currently on eBay. 100% of the proceeds benefit the Mitochondrial Disease Action Committee. As some of you may know, my 10 year old niece was diagnosed with Mito at an early age, so I’m using my love of Star Wars to help raise awareness and some money for research.

Artwork in this series was created by voice actors from The Clone Wars television show and include: TOM KANE (Yoda), JAMES ARNOLD TAYLOR (Obi-Wan Kenobi), MATT LANTER (Anakin Skywalker), CATHERINE TABER (Padmé Amidala), & JAIME KING (Aurra Sing).

So in celebration of Global Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week (last week; Sept. 16-22, 2012) and the debut of Season 5 of The Clone Wars (this coming Saturday, Sept 29, 2012) please consider bidding on one or more of these amazing pieces of art!! These are a unique, one-of-a-kind auctions of collectible art that will be found nowhere else!

Please help spread the word!
