The HPA Asks What Would Dumbledore Do?


Jul 06, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

As we draw so near to the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and the events involving the great Albus Dumbledore, the Harry Potter Alliance has now launched the “What Would Dumbledore Do” campaign as a way for fans to come together in the the spirit of the great Headmaster of Hogwarts.

While he is a fictional character, like so many other real life leaders, his message can help transform the world around us. Along with others such as Fiction Alley, Azkatraz, MuggleNet and many Wizarding rock bands, the HPA is calling on you to help join in with the three part campaign in effort to change our world. These parts involve: the Dumbledore Twitter Challenge where you twitter #dumbledore with every tweet; the Dumbledore Movie Theater Challenge on the night of the film’s release; the Dumbledore Doctrine which is where you can comment and help a
living document that translates Dumbledore’s lessons for
us personally as well as collectively. You can find out much more about this campaign to help carry out the great lessons brought to us by Albus Dumbledore here via this link.

Dumbledor would be proud...and we should be proud! A great idea. We should all learn these lessons (if we haven't already) and live them! Pass them on, to future generations...They are important lessons for us all!Avatar ImageSerendipity2009 says: It's so easy to come up with at least one lesson you've learned from Dumbledore. Be sure to follow @thehpalliance and Twitter #dumbledore with every tweet. Show the world what he has done for you.Avatar ImageJenniRussell says: I have to admit, I'm having a lot of fun with the Twitter challenge. #Dumbledore is the best hashtag ever!Avatar ImageIt must be bunnies says: "What would Dumbledore do?" I am always asking that question when I have a tough decision or problem. Often having style does not help but our choices do!Avatar ImageIt must be bunnies says: #Dumbledore on Twitter!Avatar ImageWoodette says: Cool... #dumbledore would find twitter very amusing Avatar Imageclabwag says: I've Twittered #Dumbledore. Some of his comments really to apply to life, and help me get through. :3Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: dumbledore is the best! The things he says help so often...which why i made group for me out with quotes people! ImageLovelyLooney says: Simply Brilliant! I've been having tons of fun with the Twitter Challenge as well! Keep Tweet and spreading the word everyone!Avatar Imagedecarus says: I don't think i like their slogan. Avatar ImageDorisTLC says: I am having so much fun reading people's #Dumbledore tweets. Let's all keep it up and see how many people we can get to tweet.Avatar ImageDorisTLC says: Sorry to double post, but we've started a group here on MyLeaky if you want to talk about how many times you've tweeted, or maybe chat with some of the HPA staff who will pop in and see if you have questions about WWDD. Avatar Imagekendra.dumbledore says: Doris I was just on my way over here to post a link to the group. :D I hope to chat with some of you in the group and I'm loving this #dumbledore twitter challenge!!!Avatar Imagedancin_kare says: I'm so excited about this project! Also, I, too, am having way too much fun tweeting.Avatar ImageGTHunter says: Nice idea!!!! What would dumbledore do? your dad :)Avatar Imagepotterarchy says: The Potter series is the Bible, and the Dumbledore Doctrine is the Book of Albus. Someone should seriously take thought to making a parody Potterism religion.Avatar Imagepottershrink says: Gosh, I have a more tempered, perhaps jaundiced, view of Dumbledore. What would DD do? Why, in true Machiavellian style, he would probably scheme, plot, withold truth, emotionally blackmail, manipulate, be untrustworthy with power and be prepared to risk those he loved most for "the greater good"! Rather ask, "What would Harry do?"Avatar ImageBellamont says: Dumbledore's army forever!Avatar ImageNymphadoraMae says: How awesomeeeee!!!!Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: i really need to join twitter. this sounds great though =DAvatar ImageSash1113 says: Yay! So glad to see this up on Leaky!Avatar Image1pottyfan says: all add me!!! i would do anything dumbledore told me to do!!!Avatar ImageFigment says: I think this is a nice idea.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Thats so tweet!Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: (What does it mean, Dumbledore is a fictional character? *gasp*) I think HPA's WWDD campaign is awesome because, he is an inspiration and comfort to so many people. What's so cool is seeing how so many people learn so many different life lessons from Dumbledore. Avatar Imagesakuranbo07 says: Spread the Tweets everyone!Avatar ImageFzngWizbee says: As one of my friends said: Dumbledore is my life coach. ^_^ Tweet on!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: These words I repeat to myself constantly these days. Thanks for reminding and admonishing us to act in our lives in a manner in accordance with the one that Albus Dumbledore would like to pursue. If everyone tried to emulate him, the world would be a much better place. :)Avatar ImageKC Nox says: tweeting it now!
