Vote & Help Us Win the Chapter Cup!

Carpe Futurum won the Chapter Cup for Accio Books. Can we hold onto the cup for this project? The Harry Potter Alliance is participating in the Chase Community Give Away. Chase is sponsoring a contest that will split $5 million among 200 charities. 195 charities will win $20,000. 4 runners up will win $100,000. And the winner will win $250,000. The contest lasts until July 12th and so between now and then we need approximately a GAZILLION people to vote for the HPA so that we can win lots of money and then save the world.

What will the HPA do with the money if they win it? Check out
