This Tuesday, March 2nd, the recipients of the thank you gifts for Helping Haiti Heal will be announced live on LiveStream at 8:30pm EST. The effort, which raised a grand total of $123,754.41 for Partners in Health, has now made it possible for three cargo planes named Harry, Ron, and Hermione filled with literal tons of relief supplies to be flown to Haiti. This past week, HPA's Andrew Slack presented the check for $123,754.41 for Partners in Health, a charitable organization which has been working on the ground in the nation for the past twenty years.
Some of the over 200 donated thank you gifts include a full UK set of seven signed Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, along with a handwritten card from the author; a signed guitar from Harry Potter actor Tom Felton's personal collection; Harry Potter book signed by the Harry Potter cast courtesy of actress Evanna Lynch; signed books from authors Sir Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, John Green, and Maureen Johnson; and so much more.

once again, I’m so glad hearing they went above and beyond their intended goal, and that the much-needed cargo is finally going to arrive to the stricken country. also, even though i know they paid good money for it, i am so jealous of the person who gets tom’s guitar. Merlin, I’d go to heaven just touching it :D
