Harry Potter Enthusiasts Join Together for Social Good Projects…No Spells Required

Here’s an example of a fictional hero doing some real-world good: a group calling themselves the Harry Potter Alliance have taken inspiration from the good deeds of the titular character in J.K. Rowling’s series and brought people together for social good projects. And they don’t even need wands!

The organization, which calls itself “an army of fans, activists, nerdfighters, teenagers, wizards and muggles,” uses references from the Harry Potter books and movies to get people involved in campaigns against everything from world hunger to illiteracy to internet security.

The group has been working on a number of campaigns over the last nine months (in between “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” Part I and Part II) to destroy a number of “horcruxes,” the name they give to the challenges they tackle (named, of course, after Voldemort’s magical soul-holders). Current horcruxes include the climate crisis and starvation wages, as the group aims to convince Time Warner to switch to fair trade chocolate in all of their Potter merchandise.

Pretty cool, huh? I love that they’re taking this theme that speaks to so many fans and making social change projects fun and exciting. Check out their campaigns page for more info, or to get involved!
