The battered leather jacket worn by Harrison Ford in the latest 'Star Wars' movie has been put up for auction to help a cause dear to the actor's heart.
Ford signed and donated Han Solo's 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' jacket to help raise money for research into epilepsy - a condition from which he recently revealed his adult daughter, Georgia Ford, suffers.
Eight years ago she was treated at FACES (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures) at New York University's Langone Medical Center, which left the actor impressed.
In a statement Ford said: "I hope this jacket will provide some means to further that exploration. This is a cause that is near and dear to me and unlike the cynical Han Solo, I've got a good feeling about this."
After seven days, bidding for the leather jacket has reached US$33,000 with the online auction ending on 11 April on the website IfOnly.com/HanSolo.
'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' will be released on HD Digital 1 April and Blu-ray and DVD on 5 April.
