Excerpt from: The Harry Potter Alliance (click for full article)
Our Harry Potter Alliance chapter in Edmonton seems to have a solid grasp on the accio books spell because check this out: they have already collected over 5,000 books as part of our Accio Books! campaign! Major props to Edmonton Potterwatch!
There's still time for you to share your love of literature by contributing to Accio Books!
Accio Books! is the Harry Potter Alliance's annual book drive. Since 2009, Harry Potter fans around the world have donated more than 86,000 books to underprivileged or underserved readers. This year, we're working with our partners in the International Quidditch Association and NaNoWriMo to help raise books in support of Read Indeed.
Read Indeed is a non-profit literacy organization and the vision of Maria Keller, a book-loving 7th grader who wants to collect and distribute 1 million books to needy kids by the time she's 18. Maria is a huge Harry Potter fan and she has already donated over 800,000 books. We are very excited to assist her in reaching her goal of 1 million books.
ACCIO BOOKS! runs until May 31st.
