Our beloved J.K. Rowling has posted a tweet! Ms. Rowling asks that fans please take the time to sign a Lumos petition. Lumos is a charity that benefits institutionalized children in Europe. Ms. Rowling founded Lumos in 2005 after reading an article (and seeing photographs) of institutionalized children being kept in caged beds. Lumos helps children who are institutionalized because of poverty, disability, ethnicity, behavioral issues, and child abuse/neglect. This petition asks that EU decision-makers ensure that "founds are used to create a Europe where every child lives in a loving family". The petition can be read and signed here.

There I signed the petition. We also need a petition like this one for the United States. You are such a great person JKR, so willing to help the less fortunate.
