With the approach of the holiday season, Lumos launched a campaign to help the 8 million children around who live in orphanages around the world. With 100% of the donations going to the organization’s program, Lumos asks for help to illuminate the Christmas of those in need. The donation, according to the amount, can help children and families in various ways, according to Lumos:
$35 could help feed a child in Haiti for a week.
$50 could help a child reunite with his or her family.
$100 could support a family to set up a micro-business, helping to keep children at home where they belong., and
$200 could keep a child in school for a year by covering all essential expenses.
Check out an exclusive message from J.K. Rowling about the campaign.
The institution also offers prizes for those donating, as a thank you. In the current campaign the donors have the chance to win a copy of the script from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them signed by J.K. Rowling, one “Be The Light” T-shirt signed by Eddie Redmayne, and other prizes.
Created in 2005 by J.K. Rowling, Lumos is an international non-profit organization committed to improve the quality of life from children and their families around the world. The donations can be done through the official website.
