Accio Books

Since our first Accio Books campaign in 2009, the Harry Potter Alliance has raised nearly 400,000 books for communities in need across the world. Each year, our official partners receive an outpouring of generosity from a global network of HPA chapters and members, and the results are astounding: we’ve built new libraries in Brooklyn, Uganda, and Rwanda, helped fuel educational programs in San Diego and across Puerto Rico, and provided resources for countless communities where education access is threatened. This year, we’ll celebrate the 10th anniversary of Accio Books by partnering with Reading Is Fundamental and sending books to three amazing programs in New York City, Chicago, and California!

To make this vitally important work possible, we're hoping to raise $25,000 through our Accio Books fundraiser! And once again this year, we're calling on YOU to join our fundraising team and recruit friends and family to support your personal fundraiser. Here's everything you need to get involved:
