Nice one, Tom. It’s good that Celebs like Tom give something back, unlike some I could mention.

I think that this is a great idea, even if you don’t care about having Tom follow you, it will still raise awareness!

This is great. I don’t think people even of age sometimes realize how dangerous alcohol is and how many lives have sadly been lost.

i’m glad that the cast of the biggest money-making franchise world wide are actually doing something important with their lives, not just becoming a bunch of snobby rich kids

they really are setting an excellent example for the children, and people all over the world…
…plus Tom Felton is just hot :)

I totally agree that this is an awesome campaign and it is great that Tom Felton is doing this. Awareness for underage drinking needs to increase and it is great to see a celebrity taking a stand against it instead of being out there promoting it!!! Good for Tom.
