If that’s not all she went on to say that’s she’s going to be donating £1 million split between two charities.

The first half will be going to Crisis.org.uk for the homeless during the pandemic and the second half will be going to Refuge.org.uk for the increased domestic violence during lockdown.

J.K. Rowling has given large amounts  to charity in the past and continues to set great examples. Her books continue to inspire and bring hope to those who need it. So in honor of the great wizarding world victory she’s donating and thinking about our own heroes that are out there today. The essential workers and everyone trying to help during these though times.
