If you thought that Harry Potter was just another fictional character, you're wrong. For those who think of Harry as a hero, here's another comforting news, The Seany Foundation hosted an early screening of the movie, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:Part 1' on Nov. 18, just a few hours before the scheduled release of the movie. Hundreds of Potter fans came to watch the movie, all dressed up in their Potter-ish uniforms, attended the event 'Hairless Potter Night', as this event lifted the spirits of the young cancer patients. The event raised $ 14000 and the proceeds will benefit projects at Rady's Children's Hospital and USCD Moore's Cancer Center.
Even earlier, Harry Potter books and the other three supporting texts, viz.,The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch through Ages, all have raised funds for underpriviledged and ill children.
J.K. Rowling auctioned one of her hand written copies of The Tales of Beedle the Bard for $ 3.98 million, the amount was given to the Chidren's Voice charity campaign.
Ofourse, 'with great powers comes great responsibility'!
