What You'll Do
*Cue Hedwig’s Theme* All aboard the Hogwarts Express! You and three friends (maybe the Ravenclaw®, Hufflepuff® and Slytherin® to your Gryffindor®?) are off on an incredible adventure to experience the pure magic of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort! Thanks to your Private VIP tickets and tour guide, you’ll swish-and-flick between the two lands of Diagon Alley® and Hogsmeade® with ease, soar to the front of the line for all the rides, and so much more. Maybe you’ll explore Dumbledore’s office (the password’s “sherbet lemon”) and the iconic Great Hall. Maybe you’ll go shopping for wands at Ollivanders®, sweets at Honeydukes® and robes at Madam Malkin's. Maybe you’ll feel the flames of a dragon as you escape from Gringotts® and the wind on your face as you fly on a hippogriff. Wands at the ready? Flights (on planes, not broomsticks) and hotel included.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
Who You'll Help
There are eight million children living in orphanages worldwide—even though 80% of them are not orphans.
Most children are institutionalized because their parents are poor and cannot adequately provide for them. And while many institutions are established with good intentions, more than 80 years of research proves that raising children in orphanages harms their health and development, increases their exposure to abuse and puts them at risk of future criminal activity.
Put simply, children need families, not orphanages.
Lumos, a nonprofit founded by J.K. Rowling, has the proven solution. They reveal the hidden children and transform systems of care globally. Join us, and together we can create a world where all children have the families they need and the futures they deserve.
