The Harry Potter Alliance and America's Giving Challenge

Calling all members of Dumbledore's Army! The Harry Potter Alliance is reaching out today, asking for your help with a contest that will also do good for others. The HPA has entered a contest where they can win $1,000 to help continue their charitable good works when you donate to others, all within a 24 hour period. Andrew Slack of the HPA says of this new effort:

"Here is the deal: the HPA has entered a contest that lasts 24 hours. America's Giving Challenge gives $1000 to the organization that can get the most amount of people giving in a single day. The minimum donation is 10 dollars. And it has to be given through this cause. Plus if you donate, we'll send you a certificate designed by Frak of PotterCast. We have 24 hours (3pm EST Wed to 3pm EST Thursday) to get as many ten dollar (or more) donations in for the HPA through this Facebook Cause.
This contest is not about the amount raised but about the number of people who give. If we can get about 400 people to donate 10 dollars today, we are more than likely to win the $1000 prize from America's Giving Challenge. Can we do it?!"

Anyone around the world can donate. :) …though you might not be able to claim it on your income tax (depending on where you live).
