Guess What George Lucas is Doing with His Money from the Sale of Star Wars?

As you may have heard, George Lucas recently sold Star Wars to Disney for $4 billion dollars.  He has committed to giving the money to education.  

"I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education.  It is the key to the survival of the human race," Lucas said in a statement.  "We have to plan for our collective future—and the first step begins with social, emotional, and intellectual tools we provide to our children.  As humans, our greatest tool for survival is our ability to think and to adapt—as educators, storytellers, and communicators our responsibility is to continue to do so.”
