Sponsoring Projects

Throughout the year, we sponsored a few projects through websites like DonorsChoose & Kiva.

DonorsChoose: Ready to Read…Need a Leveled Library
We helped sponsor Mrs. McDonell’s class in a high poverty urban area of Michigan. They needed a better selection of books in their classroom to accommodate readers of different levels. This helps both their reading skills and their interest in reading. If it’s one thing Harry Potter fans know about, it’s loving books!

Note: We chose this project together as a group at the January 2011 interest meeting.

 

Kiva: Maclovia
Through the Dumbledore’s Army group on Kiva, we supported Maclovia, who runs an eatery that is her family’s main source of income. The loan is for her daughter’s business, to start a small bookstore. They live in Bolivia, where the average annual income is $2,817 (USD).

DonorsChoose: Organize My Classroom!
We helped the former head of Harry Potter Alliance Chapters to purchase organizational materials that will help her class get & stay organized. We hope these items will be useful for years down the road and hope it helps her students in their quest for knowledge!
