Lumos Links

The Library of Lost Wands’ and the Ravenclaw art and stories on this site are works of fan fiction. I  do not seek to receive any commercial benefit from writing or sharing them.  If you like the story so far please consider donating money, time or other needed resources to one of the following. These are just some of my favourites. Obviously, I start my list with JK Rowling’s charity, Lumos, both because I support the work they do and as an acknowledgment that my story is set in a magical world, she created. I’ve added a list of other NGOs I support. Alternatively, why not pick a local homelessness charity, foodbank or animal shelter? Clothes or toys in good condition are also always welcome in your local charity shop, whether you support Oxfam, Mind or Scope.

The idea is to choose one and pay it forward according to what you’re able to give without hurting yourself. Spread a little light to someone you’ll probably never know.
