Lumos, the charity founded and chaired by J.K. Rowling to end the systematic placement of children in so called ‘orphanages’ around the world, has teamed up with LeakyCon, a fan conference which grew from the website The Leaky Cauldron, to bring its message and mission to the core worldwide Harry Potter fan community.
Lumos’s attendance and participation in the conference will help spread awareness of the work of the charity which works to help end the harm caused to nearly eight million children around the world who are placed in large residential institutions as a result of poverty, disability and discrimination.
The participation of Lumos at the Leakycon opening ceremonies on August 8 will make this a unique opportunity for the charity to reach out to fans of their founder and help to bring the essential messages of the Harry Potter books into strong relief as its fans celebrate their existence.
We are honored to be working with this incredible organization and we hope that we can help to further their inspiring cause.
