Helping the HP Alliance
July 08th, 2010
Want to support a great cause? The Harry Potter Alliance is currently competing in the Chase Community Giving Competition for $250,000 on Facebook. Voting ends on the 12th of July and they could use our support!
If you aren't aware of some of the great things the HP Alliance has done, here's just a few things they've done recently. They run literacy campaigns, they raised $123,000 for Haiti (just one of their Humanitarian Aid campaigns), and have a Voter Awareness campaign, Wizard Rock the Vote, to get first time voters registered. The money from the Chase Community Giving Competition would help them continue their efforts. To learn more about their plans for the money, take a look here.
Thanks for voting! The UR admins are proud to support the HP Alliance and what the HP fandom can do to help make the world a better place.
Vote for The Harry Potter Alliance in the Chase Challenge on Facebook, and the HPA could win $250,000. It takes only 30 seconds. Here's how:
1. Go to http://bit.ly/hpaFTW click "Get Started To Vote" and "Like" the Facebook app, then vote (green button, top right)!
2. Click the green button "Share with Friends" and post it to your feed to spread the word.
3. After you vote click here to tweet automatically.
Voting ends July 12th, but don't wait. We are competing with over 500,000 organizations. Vote! Then find 5 friends and make them vote. Harry Potter Alliance for the win!

I would like to start off with an apology from the entire admin team. We've really managed to fail at running this site properly for quite a while now. RL has been a bit crazy and quite busy for all of us, and although none of us intentionally ignored the site, we missed out on reveals for the fic exchange and we missed the annual Hourglass Awards. For these events, and for simply not being around, we do apologize. You still may not see us around as actively as we once were, but we do hope to remedy our absence. Please know we still care and we're still available for any issues or concerns.
And speaking of fic exchange reveals, I plan on announcing those in just a few days! I had nothing to do with running the exchange this past round, so it'll take me a bit to gather all the information and compile it, but I'm hoping to be able to post within the week. Hopefully, in the following couple of weeks, I'll be able to have all the fics uploaded to the fic exchange account. Keep an eye out!
Also, as soon as I manage to fix the poll, there will be new polls up and running. I'm working on that. =p
In happy news, the trailer to Deathly Hallows is out! The Harry Potter theme park has officially opened! UR turns five this year!
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions for events, changes, Spotlighting, anything at all, we'd love to hear from you! We're very sorry for our absence and failure to complete the fic exchange! We love all our Roomies!
