Proceeds from a new line of house-themed charm bracelets will go towards helping children’s charity Lumos.
Back in 2013, J.K. Rowling auctioned her beautiful Harry Potter charm bracelet at Sotheby’s in aid of Lumos Foundation, her non-profit organisation, which works to support the eight million children in institutions worldwide.
This sparked a wonderful idea – to create a new kind of charm bracelet that fans could wear themselves, with a percentage of the cost going to support the great work of Lumos.
That idea became a reality this weekend at A Celebration of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando Resort, as the Lumos Harry Potter Charm Bracelet Collection was unveiled.
The bracelets are made by The Noble Collection. Fans can choose from four finely crafted bracelets, each themed around their Hogwarts house and featuring three exclusive charms: the Sorting Hat, a Hogwarts house crest, and the Lumos butterfly.
At least 15 per cent of the suggested retail price of each bracelet (and any subsequent charms) will go to Lumos Foundation, to help children regain their right to a family life and end institutionalisation.
The Noble Collection will also release batches of new Harry Potter-themed charms for fans to collect, including the Hogwarts Express, Hogwarts Castle and the Golden Snitch.
