So let’s be real. You are on this site, reading these very words because you love books. Because you believe that books have changed your life. Because you believe that sharing your love of books can change the lives of people you’ve never met. Maria Keller does too. As one global Dumbledore’s Army, let’s help one young woman achieve her dream: to get 1 million books in the hands of young people across the world.
Think about the books you love: the ones in your house, the ones in your neighbors homes. The heroes in those books are whispering to you, asking you to get them into the hands and hearts of children who have never had the chance to journey with them. You’ve journeyed with them, now journey with us, in transforming the world through our love of reading.
Since 2009, Harry Potter fans around the world have donated more than 86,000 books to underprivileged or underserved readers through Accio Books! 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.
Once you’ve donated books, be sure to let us know by logging your books in the HOUSE CUP! We want to know which house is the most serious about spreading literacy this year. Hufflepuff won our last two Accio Books! house cups. Is anyone going to challenge the badgers this year?
