Owls for J.K. Rowling – the Fans Say a Collective Thank You

Los Angeles, CA, November 18, 2015 --(PR.com)-- The Los Angeles Dumbledore’s Army is spearheading a social media project to join Harry Potter fans groups from across the United States via “owl post” to collectively thank J.K. Rowling for creating the magical Harry Potter universe. By creating the #owlsforjkrowling project and launching it one year before the first “Fantastic Beasts” film is set to release, the aim is to make the hashtag viral so J.K. Rowling can feel the enormity of the love for the Harry Potter series in time for the American holiday of Thanksgiving.

The Harry Potter groups encourage fans all over the world to share their own message to J.K. Rowling by sharing photos over social media with the hashtag #owlsforjkrowling. Harry Potter fans can view photos daily from the project’s official Facebook www.facebook.com/owlsforjkrowling and Instagram www.instagram.com/owlsforjkrowling pages.

The Harry Potter generation, those in their late twenties to early forties who grew up with the book series, have been affected deeply by the books. In many ways, Harry Potter has changed their lives and has also been a pivotal catalyst in how they made friends and sustained relationships. Thanking the woman who awakened their love of fantasy, made it possible to keep their childish enthusiasm alive, and inspired them to follow their dreams is the least we could do to honor Mrs. Rowling.

There are numerous fan groups throughout the U.S. that have kept the magic of the Harry Potter series alive since the epilogue was published in 2007. While the group numbers have ebbed and flowed, Harry Potter fan groups have perpetuated the fandom in their hometowns through local events for adults and children alike.

About #owlsforjkrowling

This hashtag #owlsforjkrowling will be the link to anyone who wishes to express their thanks and share their continued love and appreciation to J.K. Rowling. Images will be shared via the project’s official Facebook www.facebook.com/owlsforjkrowling and on Instagram www.instagram.com/owlsforjkrowling pages.

This is a very exciting time for HP fans with the upcoming debut of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”, debuting in London this summer, as well as the impending release of the first Harry Potter prequel film, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, starring Eddie Redmayne.
