Late last year we reported on the big Quidditch tournament which took place in New York City. Its founder, Alex Benepe, today tells us that they raised $5,000 for Book Aid International through t-shirt sales at the tournament and online. From their blog:
In an official statement, Book Aid recently said "We're delighted to have been chosen as the International Quidditch Association's charity partner! For every official IQA t-shirt bought, the donation made to Book Aid International will pay for us to send one new book to a library in sub-Saharan Africa, to countries where books are a luxury that very few people can afford." Read about the IQA's donation on the Book Aid International website here.
The IQA is grateful to be a part of this tradition, and also for Book Aid International's willingness to partner with our organization. We look forward to continuing to support Book Aid International as our league grows and develops.
J.K. Rowling has been a big supporter of Book Aid International. Nice job everyone!
