With Project for Awesome coming up, I realized I haven’t told you my favorite programs to throw money at yet! Here’s number one:
The Harry Potter Alliance takes all of that fan power and puts it to real-world use. They’ve successfully campaigned for slavery-free chocolate in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter parks, run a woman-led leadership program, and donate hundreds (thousands?) of books to areas in need. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Conveniently, they’ll be part of the Project for Awesome this weekend, you- and I- will have lots of ways to donate to them, from “liking” the videos that people made to support the HPA to giving directly to the organization.
