Face Your Boggart - Phoenix Rising HPA

Team photo

Thanks for visiting the Phoenix Rising HPA's team fundraising page.

As a Chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance our mission is to address issues of social justice whilst using the power of story.

For 2014 we have decided to raise money for our Chapter funds and a variety of charities that are important to us through a campaign we are calling 'Face Your Boggart'.

You'll see our team fundraising target on the right (this will be a combination total of each invidual's target). Your donations can really help us smash this goal. You can find out further details about the challenge, and/or choose to sign up and join our team (you don't have to be a member of PR) here.

In short though, in Harry Potter a Boggart is a creature that when faced turns into your greatest fear. In the series you can use the incantation Riddikulus to turn the Boggart into something less scary. In the Muggle world we will just have to use the technique from another story to tackle our fears head on. In Divergent (by Veronica Roth) the Dauntless faction face their fears as part of their initiation. They learn to control their fear rather than eliminate it and that's just what we are going to support each other to do.

May 2014 will be the month when we will arrange to face and support each other facing our respective fears.

Please do visit our team members' pages and if you would like to help them face their Boggart or want to help them support their specific charity just click donate.

Please do come back regularly to check on our progress and see who has joined us - will 2014 be the year you 'Face Your Boggart'?

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
