A number of actors from the Harry Potter films have donated original doodles for National Doodle Day 2009, a charitable event that benefits Epilepsy Action and the Neurofibromatosis Association.  This year, actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Imelda Staunton (Umbridge), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood), Zoe Wanamaker (Madam Hooch), and Jim Broadbent (Slughorn), are among the slew of celebrities to show off their artistic ability and donate their work for this cause.  The full gallery of doodles, including Mr. Broadbent's very detailed and artistic sketch, can be viewed here.  An auction will start on February 27th for these pieces, all proceeds of which will go to benefit those who are affected by epilepsy and neurofibromatosis.  Additionally, voting is open to choose your favorite celebrity doodle of 2009.  More information about the two charities can be found here, while additional auction information can be found via this link.

I have a lot of doodles. Maybe I should save them if I ever become famous. Lol Seriouly for a moment, I think they will be able to raise a great deal of money for charity. I would buy one.

What an awesome idea! I wish I was famous enough so I could just doodle something to raise money for charity. :)

I have to agree that it’s kinda lame for Dan to just have a signed picture. Jim and Robbie’s were very impressive, and I thought Imelda’s was cute too.

I hope they post Daniel Radcliffe’s doodle soon, instead of a photo. It all looks so awesome!

That’s really cool, more celebrities should do that.

I think Dan’s is his doodle. If you look at his face, he has given his picture a black eye. I’m sure that wasn’t in the original photo. I had to really look at it to see it. Of course, I could be wrong, but….
