Feltbeats.com will be holding a Charity Fundraiser in celebration of Tom Felton’s 10 years playing Slytherin Bad Boy Draco Malfoy. Over the next six months, we will be collecting donations for the newest charity near and dear to Tom’s heart. Inspired by the documentary, “Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children” Here’s more info from the filmakers:
Since making the film Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children – we have been able to help the children featured. But they are among many thousands of children in desperate need of an EDUCATION. For £2.50 per month or £30.00 per year you can pay for a child’s school fees for an entire year in Zimbabwe.
Tom has put out the plea for fans of his to help take these children out of the work force and into the classroom. This is where you come in.
After more than a decade of portraying the Slytherin Ice Prince on the big screen, Tom Felton will give his final performance as his alter ego, Draco Malfoy, in July 2011 when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II arrives in theaters around the globe. As a thank you to Tom, and a proper send-off of Draco, we at Feltbeats.com are conducting a fundraiser for one of Tom’s favorite charities, Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children.
Each month, we will be collecting donations at http://www.justgiving.com/dracosgift . Just Giving is a non-profit agency that collects donations and submits them directly to the charity every 25 days. On the 5th of each month, Feltbeats.com will draw names from the doners the previous month to win special Feltbeats.com related goodies, culminating with the final draw on Draco Malfoy’s 31st Birthday! In July, Feltbeats.com members will be in London presenting a celebratory check to the Zimbabwechildren.orgs offices listing the total raised for this life changing charity. When thinking of donating this holiday season, and beyond, please keep the children of Zimbabwe in your hearts.
