Helping Haiti Heal Finale Today at 2PM on LiveStream

Join us for the grand finale for the the Helping Haiti Heal fundraising drive today at 2pm EST, when a final webcast featuring three wizard rock bands will give us a recap of the events of the past two weeks.  In that very short time, over $112,000 has been raised for Partners In Health.  That amount, given by you and your fellow fans across fandom lines, has made it possible for three cargo planes filled with lifesaving supplies to be able to make their way to Haiti.  Best of all: Partners in Health has agreed name those three planes Harry, Ron, and Hermione.




Don't forget, the time to donate is now!  We will be accepting donations until 11:59pm EST tonight, February 6, 2010.  You can still enter to win a full set of signed Harry Potter books and many more awesome gifts based on your donation level.  100% of your donation will go toward relief - by visiting this page.

Just yesterday, Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling sent this special message to all those who have donated and supported this effort:
To everyone who has helped raise such an incredible amount for the earthquake survivors in Haiti: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Like many others, I made a personal donation to the DEC shortly after the earthquake happened; but never did I expect such an amazing response from all of you.  You cannot imagine how awed, moved and humbled I am to know that planes named Harry, Ron and Hermione are going to be flying off to help.  I did not need this to remind me how extraordinary Harry’s fans are, but you keep giving me proofs. THANK YOU! - Jo
See you there!

Unfortunately, I missed the event, but I hope that everyone that was able to watch was able to enjoy & that a great deal of money was raised for a worthy cause.

"Shut up, Ron," said Hermione angrily. "How many times have you suspected Snape, and when have you [i]ever[/i] been right? Dumbledore trusts him, he works for the Order, that ought to be enough."
