R2-KT’s man servant Al gives us the lowdown on a new challenge coin based on the Stay Safe patch done for May 4th, with proceeds to benefit the United Way Covid-19 Relief Fund….

The Stay Safe patches we did last month were our way of celebrating unity in spite of separation and the message have that no one is truly alone.

Many of you have asked if there would be a challenge coin. Well thanks to Juan José Matamoros the design was modified to fit the bill. While the patch was designed to show separation by how we positioned the characters, the coin makes it even more clear: R2-KT on one side, the Child (aka Baby Yoda) on the other. Separated, but never far apart – because with love (like the Force) we are all still connected!

Once again we benefit the United Way Covid-19 World Relief Fund. Thanks to you, we were able to raise $1982 (as of May 19th)! Most of that has been paid out but we are sending out supplemental donations as the last patches are sold.

p.s. we are OUT of the Stay Safe patches, but email us at r2kt@r2kt.com if you missed out – if we get enough emails we’ll do another run

Thank you so much for helping us help others at a time when it’s needed most. You can learn more and support United Way directly here:
