Equality FTW

equality for the win

EqualityFTW is the Harry Potter Alliance’s annual fundraiser.

The HPA is an organization created by fans, serving fans and supported by fans. We are a place where Harry Potter fans, Nerdfighters, and other fandoms can come together and find practical ways to decrease world suck.

In the second year of our member-based fundraiser, we shattered our $100,000 goal and raised over $184,000. This came in the form of 4693 different donations – more than twice as many as our previous year.

This year we had the incredible support of a range of partners – John Green, Hank Green, LeakyCon, Evanna Lynch, Patrick Rothfuss, Maureen Johnson, Team StarKid, The Potter Puppet Pals and Scholastic Books – all of whom offered exclusive perks for to our fundraiser. We were also honored to have the support of J.K. Rowling who donated a complete set of signed Harry Potter books.

Thanks to the support of our generous donors, the HPA has been able to charge ahead in the fight against inequality. Our work on marriage equality continues and last November we launched the Odds in Our Favor, using the Hunger Games to focus on economic inequality.
Thanks for your support and for making our work possible.
