That letter from Hogwarts probably isn't coming, but you can still be a part of J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World by attending the premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. As part of a campaign launched by Crowdise and Rowling's own charitable orginization, Lumos, one lucky fan and their plus one will be able to walk the red carpet and meet the cast at the film premiere in New York, Paris, or London.
That "lucky fan" could be you, and all you have to do is donate here. All proceeds go toward rescuing children from dangerous orphanages and reuniting them with their families or, if that's not an option, finding them a suitable and loving home. Not even the goblins of Gringotts could put a price on such a noble goal.
But don't take our word for it. Let Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne (portrayer of Newt Scamander) tell you about the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of not only attending the premiere of a highly anticipated Hollywood sequel, but also getting the chance to stay in a fancy hotel, do a little sightseeing, and meet a bunch of celebrities with all of your expenses paid for ahead of time.
And even if you don't win the premiere, you can still get cool swag like T-shirts and limited-edition prints, simply by donating. The term "Lumos" is the name of a spell in the Harry Potter universe, which causes a beam of light to emanate from a wizard/witch's wand.
By being a part of this excellent cause, you too will helping bring a little bit of light into the world; the best part is that no magic whatsoever is required to help make someone else's unfortunate situation a little brighter. It's enough to give you that warm and fuzzy feeling of happiness inside, the feeling that precedes the production of a really awesome Patronus.
Directed by David Yates, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald apparates into theaters November 16 with a cast that includes Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Johnny Depp, and Jude Law.
