Hello every body! Clara Rose back, just gearing up for National Archaeology Week (next week) and International Museums Day on the 18th May for 2016. I will be blogging more on this over the weekend but among the mayhem and flour, I have neglected to introduce you all to the Southern Seekers, the local chapter of the worldwide charity organisation, The Harry Potter Alliance (www.thehpalliance.org).
The Harry Potter Alliance embraces fandoms other than just Harry Potter and there are currently just four chapters of the HPA in Australia. We are a group that believes that fans can be heroes and have an authentic love of our particular fandoms and use genuine passion to promote activism that is also fun.
We hold our local meetings on the third Monday of every month at Dymocks bookstore in Rundle Mall and tickets for dates can be found through Eventbrite (website or app). We have a Facebook page for the Southern Seekers and are supported by Thebarton High School.
As part of our charitable efforts, we are currently running a campaign called Accio Books! that aims to send a library of books for students of all ages to a school in Uganda this year. Please see the image above about what sort of books we are seeking and the drop off point is Dymocks in Rundle Mall. You are welcome to dress in your house colours and we will be having a few exciting events through out the year. I asked the Sorting Hat to be Slytherin, naturally.
