Spread Light with Lumos This Giving Tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday, and J.K. Rowling’s charity, Lumos, needs your help!

Lumos, which works toward ending the institutionalization of children, recently sent out a special message from Harry Potter actor Jason Isaacs.



Lumos is asking for donations today to help support this mission of “bring[ing] more families back together and build[ing] a future where every child has a loving family.”

On Giving Tuesday, November 27, Facebook is matching up to $7 million in donations made on its website. MuggleNet already has a fundraiser for Lumos, and 100% of the donations will go to the charity. Check it out below, and you can even create your own fundraiser by clicking here!



Press Release

We couldn’t have put it better than our friend, Harry Potter actor, Jason Isaacs. All children belong with their families. And while the rest of the country is indulging in yet another day of shopping, you can have the power to make this happen…

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday. It’s an incredible day, a day when people everywhere give back to the causes they care about.

For the Lumos community, it’s a day for everyone who believes that children belong in loving families to come together and chip in to make it a reality.

Will you ask your friends and family to bring a little light to this Giving Tuesday? It’s easy – just set up a Facebook fundraiser for Lumos now – and when you’ve done it, share far and wide to get those gifts rolling in.


Together, we can bring more families back together and build a future where every child has a loving family.

That’s definitely better than snagging a half-price t-shirt!

PS. Alternatively, make sure you’re on Facebook on Giving Tuesday to give a gift yourself. Either way, make sure you don’t miss out on this incredible moment of giving back!

100% of your donations go straight to our programmes.
