This Tuesday, March 2nd, the recipients of the thank you gifts for Helping Haiti Heal will be announced live on LiveStream at 8:30pm EST.  The effort, which raised a grand total of $123,754.41 for Partners in Health, has now made it possible for three cargo planes named Harry, Ron, and Hermione filled with literal tons of relief supplies to be flown to Haiti.  This past week, HPA's Andrew Slack presented the check for  $123,754.41 for Partners in Health, a charitable organization which has been working on the ground in the nation for the past twenty years.


Some of the over 200 donated thank you gifts include a full UK set of seven signed Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, along with a handwritten card from the author; a signed guitar from Harry Potter actor Tom Felton's personal collection; Harry Potter book signed by the Harry Potter cast courtesy of actress Evanna Lynch; signed books from authors Sir Terry Pratchett,  Neil Gaiman, John Green, and Maureen Johnson; and so much more.

Join us on the Say AHA LiveStream channel this Tuesday, March 2nd, at 8:30pm EST to see if you are the lucky recipient of the item you put your money towards.
