As all Star Wars fans know, today is May the 4th, a.k.a Star Wars Day: ! To celebrate, Daisy Ridley, the newcomer to the Star Wars Universe who brought Rey to the big screen, has wished everyone a happy Star Wars Day in a lovely video.

She's also reminding us that Star Wars has led an incredible fundraiser titled Force For Change, which has been offering various prizes to participants in order to raise money for charities such as the American Red Cross and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Happy Star Wars Day From Daisy Ridley!

The adorable video sees Ridley and a few of her companions wish fans a happy Star Wars Day on behalf of the cast — she even gets a Finn figurine as a gift from John Boyega.

The Force For Change campaign has already raised more than $2 million, matching donations for the first million, and is offering a chance this week for the top fundraiser to meet Mark Hamill. By donating, you're also entering the draw to win a trip to Ireland, where you'll get to visit Skellig Michael, a filming location for The Force Awakens and the coming Episode VIII.

Daisy Ridley's Enthusiasm Is Contagious

The charming British actress has been spreading the love on Instagram, too, sharing a few heartwarming snaps from the movie set.

Including, of course, a nod to "Peanuts" — yes, that's what she and John Boyega call each other.

How are you celebrating Star Wars Day?
