The Crowdrise Campaign for J.K. Rowling’s children’s charity Lumos has been in high gear since it’s announcement last month by Fantastic Beasts co-stars, Alison Sudol and recent LeakyCon guest Dan Fogler, via livestream with Lumos. The competition originally planned to award one lucky grand prize winner and their guest a full behind-the-scenes experience of the new film led by producer David Heyman and director David Yates, allowing them to see the set, meet cast and crew members and visit the Warner Bros Studio Tour. This also includes round trip air transportation for two to London, and three nights in a four star hotel in the capital. The competition is hosted by Crowdrise, and is only $12 to enter. The money raised goes to supporting Lumos Foundation USA.

Now your chances have doubled of winning the grand prize! Today J,K. Rowling announced that two additional people will be eligible to win the grand prize:

Along with Fantastic Beasts contest news may be a little more motivation to donate. According to the Bath Chronicle, actor Jude Law who is cast to play a young Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts sequel was seen taking in a film in the UK city of Bath recently and shared a  message with the young man who worked at the theater:



The article also seemed to confirm that the cast of Fantastic Beasts is indeed filming at Lacock Abbey, the Hogwarts set from the Harry Potter films as speculated here by Leaky last month.

Not only might you be able to visit the set of Fantastic Beasts 2 and meet the cast, but actually meet Newt Scamander and friends at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! All this while helping orphans in Haiti. Could this contest get any better? 

As covered by Leaky last month, the following other perks are available for those who donate:

Donate $24 for 2 entries and a digital thank you from Dan Fogler and Alison Sudol

Donate $48 for 4 entries plus a limited edition print featuring original illustrations by MinaLima for J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay

Donate $72 for 6 entries plus an exclusive black “be the light” t-shirt
Visit the official competition website here to enter. The winner of the grand prize must be available between 16th October – 10th November 2017. Read the official terms and conditions (including who is eligible to enter) here. The competition runs until September 20th at 11:59:59pm ET.
