Today, Lumos have launched an exciting new prize draw that could see you flying off to see the new Fantastic Beasts film in New York, Paris or London. Here’s Eddie Redmayne to explain more…
Yes, J.K. Rowling’s charity Lumos is back with a new fundraising campaign – and there are prizes aplenty to be won. Allow Newt Scamander, sorry, Eddie Redmayne, to explain further.
As Eddie mentions, there is a bountiful array of prizes up for grabs simply by donating $10 or more to Lumos' CrowdRise page. All of your donations will go towards Lumos’s chief cause: to reunite orphaned children with their families.
The top prize will see you and a guest flown to one of the three premieres that are taking place for the release of The Crimes of Grindelwald: New York, Paris or London. You’ll be flown to your premiere of choice, put up in a swanky 4-star hotel, and even get a chance to meet the cast of the new film. Not bad. Not bad at all.
Other prizes include a Fantastic Beasts gold-foiled print (as designed by graphic design duo MinaLima), a Fantastic Beasts t-shirt, and a signed screenplay of the new film by J.K. Rowling herself. And remember, even if you don’t win, every entry will help Lumos continue its amazing work.
Georgette Mulheir, the CEO of Lumos, explained just why your donation is so important.
‘Every entry helps fund Lumos’ work to shine a light on the 8 million children trapped in orphanages and institutions around the world. Children thrive in families, not orphanages, and everyone who enters can be proud that they are helping Lumos achieve its mission to support all children to grow up in loving family care.’
You can start making your donations on Crowdrise from today, with the prize draw ending 6 July. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens in theatres worldwide on 16 November.
