The Magic of Harry Potter and a lesson in giving

It’s probably no secret to most Harry Potter fans that Amazon.com bought “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” – a special handwritten book by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling – for a whopping $3.98 million dollars! HP fans should recall that these tales were mentioned in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” as a critical element to the story line. The first of these tales as well as several hi-res images have now been posted on Amazon.com and can be accessed here.

The book is magical, handmade and beautifully finished – completely handwritten by J.K. Rowling herself – along with several illustrations.

The real magic of this story is that ALL of the proceeds are being donated to The Children’s Voice Campaign charity, instituted by J.K. Rowling, which goes to help aid children who most need an advocate in the world.  

J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter fandom continue to inspire me with unmatched creativity, compassion, and generosity.

Whoever said there is no such thing as magic anyway?
