The Harry Potter Alliance Is Launching a Magical Online Club

The Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) is known for its good work: From hosting book drives to campaigning for equality, and even hosting a convention in honor of Pride Month back in June, this organization never passes up an opportunity to do some good in the world. Currently, its volunteers are hard at work to ensure that as many people as possible vote in the upcoming election in the United States. They are doing this through virtual voter registration drives along with the Granger 2020 campaign, which aims to bring about social justice. Along with this campaign, #TeamGranger Action Days are also being held on September 19 and 20. We bet Hermione would be very proud of this. 

Since the HPA is a nonprofit organization, it garners the funds it needs from fundraisers. The great thing about these fundraisers is that they are fun and also give back to those who donate. The current two-week digital fundraiser, the HPA Internet Club, will raise funds for the Granger 2020 campaign, and those who donate will be treated to digital delights as a thank you. The perks include email pep talks from people who are doing some good work of their own, like the author of Commcoterie, Caitlin Harper, podcaster and actress Grace Gordon (The Art Life), essayist Xandra Robinson-Burns (Heroine Training), writer Olivia Dolphin (Wizards in Space), cofounder of Black Girls Create Robyn Jordan, and LGBTQ+ activist and YouTuber Jackson Bird. Also on the list is the new wizard rock compilation, featuring Flitwick and the Charmers, Totally Knuts, Tonks and the Aurors, Toucan Dubh, and many more. The Hogwarts Escape will also be providing a virtual escape room for those who join the HPA Internet Club, so if you decide to donate some of your Galleons, you’ll be treated to loads of magical fun in your inbox between September 1 and 15. 

The funds raised by this campaign will also go toward supporting fan activists after the election is over. They will be treated to virtual healing retreats after which they will continue their hard work to fight for justice and equality.

If this sounds like a cause you’d love to support, you can head over to the HPA Internet Club’s web page and follow @thehpalliance on all social media platforms to stay in the know regarding more opportunities to change the world for the better, receive important action alerts, and hear a good Harry Potter joke every now and then.

The Harry Potter Alliance launches all[-]digital fundraiser with [t]he HPA Internet Club!

Join the Harry Potter Alliance as they host a two[-]week fundraiser connecting supporters with digital delights to bring joy to their virtual world.

Growing up, I was a massive fan of Harry Potter and my love for the stories grew as I got older. It’s no surprise then that I love writing about all things Potter related. When I’m not writing about all the magic, you’ll find me reading (probably something Harry Potter related), listening to music, or writing some songs.
