FeltBeats has just posted about a holiday fundraiser they will be having to help children in Zimbabwe, a charity that Tom is involved with. Over the next six months they will be collecting donations for Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children.
Each month, we will be collecting donations at http://www.justgiving.com/dracosgift . Just Giving is a non-profit agency that collects donations and submits them directly to the charity every 25 days. On the 5th of each month, Feltbeats.com will draw names from the doners the previous month to win special Feltbeats.com related goodies, culminating with the final draw on Draco Malfoy’s 31st Birthday! In July, Feltbeats.com members will be in London presenting a celebratory check to the Zimbabwechildren.org’s offices listing the total raised for this life changing charity. When thinking of donating this holiday season, and beyond, please keep the children of Zimbabwe in your hearts.
The money you donate will seriously help these young children, here is some information from the filmmakers of a documentary entitled Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children:
Since making the film Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children – we have been able to help the children featured. But they are among many thousands of children in desperate need of an EDUCATION. For £2.50 per month or £30.00 per year you can pay for a child’s school fees for an entire year in Zimbabwe
The following is a video of Tom talking about the cause.
As most of you probably know, The Harry Potter Alliance is a charitable organization run by some very awesome Potter fans. The object of the organization is to use themes from the Harry Potter novels to get people of all ages interested in world issues. Some of their past campaigns include Accio Books and Helping Haiti Heal.
You can make a big difference with only a few seconds of your time. The Harry Potter Alliance is in 3rd place to win $250,000 which will help them do more to get books to children in need, and save lives through raising money for charities.
