Leonard Nimoy’s daughter wants your help.
Julie Nimoy is a loving daughter to the legendary actor Leonard Nimoy, known for his role as Spock on various shows and movies from the Star Trek franchise. Leonard passed away seven years ago in 2015 and to help honor her father, Julie has begun working with the Boston Science Museum.
Nimoy and the BSM are attempting to erect a statue that would sit out front of the building. The statue would be a perfect salute to honor Nimoy, as it would be a hand making the Vulcan salute. A statue that will cost about $1 million. The project has raised $30,000 so far, but it’s nowhere near the goal they’re hoping for.
That’s where the fans come in.
Nimoy spoke to TrekMovie about the statue that would honor her father, saying;
"“Seven years ago today, my wonderful dad passed away. You are greatly missed, especially your warm and loving hugs.Dad, you would be so honored knowing that the Museum of Science will be the permanent home to your memorial. The sculpture not only depicts one of the world’s most recognized and loved gestures for peace, tolerance, and diversity, but it will also be a beautiful tribute to your life and legacy.”“Your memory lives on – always and forever”"
Star Trek fans could win a rare and unique item if they donate
You can help make a donation, and in doing so enter yourself for a one-of-a-kind item. Firstly, you have to go to the website and make a minimum donation of $5. By making a minimum donation, you will then be entered into a raffle of sorts to win the LLAP pendant that was sent to space with Blue Origin in December.
The drawing will begin on Leonard Nimoy’s birthday; March 26, and will be handled by the staff of the Museum of Science in Boston. More prizes are expected to be announced in the future, and the idea is to make this a year-long event, so you have until early 2023 to make a donation.
