0 Dear Mr. Potter


As many of us know, The Harry Potter books are amazing! People from all over the world love this series. I want to bring to your attention the organization, Dear Mr. Potter. This organization sheds light on and raises money to benefit youth literacy. Below is the press release by the founder, Lily Zalon. Please take some time to check it out and if you can, participate. Dear Mr. Potter is hoping to get the book out in June. They need donations and help spreading the word about this organization. I want to thank Raimy from Readaraptor for bringing this to my attention.

For those of you who haven’t heard about DearMrPotter.org yet, check it out! Dear Mr. Potter, started by 16-year-old Lily Zalon, is a non-profit book featuring stories, letters, and photos from Harry Potter fans around the world telling how the series has impacted and inspired them. The book, which will be available for purchase this Summer, is being sold 100% non-profit to benefit youth literacy through the Harry Potter Alliance. While submissions for the book are now closed, the website is still a fully-functioning blog, posting fans’ stories every day while the book is being put together behind-the-scenes. The blog has been featured on both New York Magazine’s website and Time Magazine’s ‘Newsfeed,’ so it’s really generating interest beyond the Harry Potter fandom. Dear Mr. Potter is collecting donations for production costs at https://www.wepay.com/donate/169955. We can’t wait for this summer, this book should be very cool!
