Join our Global Book Drive: Become a Friend of the Apparating Library!

It’s officially Accio Books season, and we’re kicking it off with an exciting and important fundraiser: Friends of the Apparating Library 2018!

We need to raise $25,000 by April 14 so we can coordinate this year’s Accio Books campaign and send thousands of books to our partners, Boys and Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico (BGCPR). Your donation will support the creation of new lending libraries at Clubs in Las Margaritas, Bayamón, Aguas Buenas, and Carolina. We can’t overstate the importance of this campaign. Local residents are still struggling to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Maria, and accessible educational resources are more critical than ever!

For every $10 you donate to the fundraiser, you’ll receive one entry into our Evanna Lynch Signed Book Contest! Upon completion of the fundraiser, we’ll send you a quick Harry Potter-themed creative activity via email. An impartial jury will select two grand prizes winners, who’ll each receive a copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, signed by Evanna Lynch! The committee will also select several runners up, who’ll have a choice of awesome perks from rad authors like John Green and Rainbow Rowell, VIP passes to a future Mischief Management conference, and more.

We’re also offering some fantastic exclusive perk bundles at higher donation levels! We have a brand new Hermione Granger “I’m Hoping to Do Some Good in the World!” t-shirt, a Remembrall journal, a Yer A Wizard lapel pin, and a set of colorful “Dumbledore Is Gay” buttons.

The pin comes in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.

Another great way to snag this Potterific swag is to join our fundraising team using the “Fundraise For This” button on our main campaign page. Set up your own personal fundraiser and use your passion and enthusiasm to recruit donations from your friends and family! You’ll earn exclusive rewards for hitting fundraising milestones, and you’ll join an elite crew of real-life aurors who are making real impact for the people of Puerto Rico!

Of course, no fundraiser is complete without a Hogwarts House Cup competition! We enthusiastically recommend donating through one of our official House Cup fundraising pages: Gryffindor // Ravenclaw // Hufflepuff // Slytherin
