“Harry Potter” stars participate in National Doodle Day

Several Harry Potter stars are participating in this year’s National Doodle Day, a fundraising event that raises money for the charity Epilepsy Action, an organization that works to improve the lives of those living with epilepsy.

As part of their campaign, National Doodle Day will feature an auction, beginning Februrary 8, where doodles of celebrities will be listed on eBay. Several actors from the Harry Potter franchise have donated doodles to this worthy cause, including Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood), Adrian Rawlins (James Potter), Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody), Fiona Shaw (Aunt Petunia), John Hurt (Garrick Ollivander), and Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley). Their doodles, along with the others that will be featured in the auction, can be viewed here.

Thanks to Stephanie W. for the tip! It’s nice to see so many Harry Potter actors giving back. Will you place a bid on any of the doodles?

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
