This Friday – July 31st – Sunipal and I are going to be doing a movie marathon, but not just ANY movie marathon, a Harry Potter movie marathon… For charity!!
For about 20 hours, from 6am until 2am straight, we will be watching all 8 Harry Potter films back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-(*gasp*)-back-to-back-to-back-to-back!!
Even though as movie nuts, this would have been fun to attempt for no reason, we thought it’d be more fun to do this marathon for charity!
In honour of (the cctual haracter) Harry Potter’s 35th birthday and JK Rowling’s 50th (both July 31st!), we are raising money for Lumos – JK Rowling’s own charity, which helps children around the world in poor living conditions and institutions.
If anyone stumbles on this and would like to donate, please do check out our fundraising page here: https://www.justgiving.com/Pamela-Pal/
In preparation so far, Sunipal is knitting a Hogwarts House colours blanket, my Hogwarts house nails are half-done and I tried making these “Butterbeer Bites” that I found through Pinterest: http://thebigmansworld.com/2014/12/05/butterbeer-energy-bites/
Mine kind of look more like chicken nuggets… 😛 (But the little bits I’ve eaten so far taste amazing!!)
I am hoping to try out a recipe for actual Butterbeer on Friday too. We are also planning to make ourselves some Harry Potter-themed shirts, so suggestions are welcome!
Follow along with our marathon on Twitter and YouTube and — Happy Birthday Harry Potter!! (Oh, you too, JK Rowling! 😛 )
