Fandom Efforts for Haiti Relief - Buy a Jingle Spells or Donate Today

Charity

Three days ago a devastating, 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti. The amount of humanitarian aid and charitable relief that's required to stabilize the area and secure the safety of those who live there is astronomical. We have been discussing how to properly respond to this tragedy and will have more details soon on events and other efforts that are in the works to  help the fandom react as one.

Meanwhile, we have several ways you can contribute as a Harry Potter fan. Firstly, profits from any Jingle Spells album (whether digital or disc) bought within the next week will go to Haiti relief. You can purchase any Jingle Spells album right here or from the link in the sidebar. [Unrelated note: Any JS ordered between Dec 11 and now will be going out this week.]

If you'd just like to donate and have your name registered as part of our Potter community donation, please use the button below.




More relief efforts are going on at the fandom-centric Help Haiti LiveJournal, where you can enter to win prizes that have been donated for the cause. The auction ends Wednesday so check it out!

Please stay tuned for more. You can find out more about what you can do to help at this link.

This is wonderful that Leaky is doing this to help the people of Haiti. My company is also doing something very cool, for every dollar donated by an employee through the link they have set up to the American Red Cross my company will match dollar for dollar so that the people of Haiti will get double the assistance.

I’m so proud to be part of a fandom that takes action like this. Well done everyone! Check out the LJ site- there are some cool prizes listed!
and ps- as of today the Red Cross has raised over $11 million with the “Text haiti to 90999” campaign. Wow!
