Harry Potter Alliance STANDs Fast
November 13, 2008, 01:28 PM
On December 3, the HP Alliance is reopening its efforts for STANDFast, an activity in which participants give up a luxury item (like a Starbucks latte or a CD) and donate the money they save to help protect the Lily Potters of Darfur and the PotterWatch of Burma. About $10 can protect a whole family in Burma and a woman in Darfur. Last year, Harry Potter fans raised over $8,000 for Civilian Protection in Darfur.
If you want to become more involved, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the HP Alliance's forum to get in on the discussion.
Again, you can take part at this page
. Thank you all in advance! The Harry Potter community frequently shows the world that its made up of caring and thoughtful individuals and we can't wait to do it again.
I think the Harry Potter Alliance is one of the most brilliant & positive off-shoots of the whole HP fandom. They truly apply the message of the books to real life & make a difference, just like Harry. I wholeheartedly support their efforts & encourage my fellow HP fans to do the same! Thanks Leaky for sharing this!
I think the HPA is a great idea and I will be dontating ASAP…
I also think its a lousy idea that the HP quiz on this page is a force to get into some kind of ‘offer’ where you have to give out personal information to get your results. ><
