J.K. Rowling's Birthday Wish - "Lumos"

Today is July 31st - a very special day in the Harry Potter world.  Today celebrate's both Harry Potter himself, as well as the incredible woman behind his story, J.K. Rowling's, birthdays.  Today would be Harry Potter's 33rd birthday.  If you want to know Jo's, just Google it ;).

In honor of her birthday, Jo asked for one thing from her fans.  She asked, that instead of sending her presents or cards, or anything else that many, many fans send to her every year, she would prefer that all of her wonderful fans donate money to her favorite charity - "Lumos".

By donating, you are helping out of one of the charities closest to Jo's heart, as well as helping provide for all the good deeds "Lumos" does.  And hey, there's a contest involved too!  They include:

Anyone who donates any amount will be entered to win:

  • A signed photo of Matt Lewis
  • A signed photo of Dame Maggie Smith
  • A signed photo of Warwick Davis as Griphook, kindly donated by The Signature Shop
  • A signed copy of Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli
  • A tweet from Evanna Lynch (remember to leave your Twitter username if you'd like to be entered for this!)

Anyone who donates £5 or more will also be entered to win one of the GRAND PRIZES, which are:

  • A signed copy of The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
  • A one-of-a-kind set of photographs of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, taken by Harry Potter scriptwriter Steve Kloves at the Deathly Hallows Part II premiere
So help out Jo, celebrate her's and Harry's birthday, and give a little if you can (click the photo to be taken to the page to donate)!
