A Message Of Thanks From J.K. Rowling

17/12/2016

As we plan to celebrate this festive season with our families, please spare a thought for the estimated 8 million children who are in institutions worldwide. For many, Christmas is just another day in a cold, destitute place, where they are scared and alone, often hungry. For all it is another day without the love of a family or any affection at all.

Lumos is working to change the lives of these children every single day. Your extraordinary support of our We Are Lumos Worldwide campaign this year – whether you donated your time or money, raised awareness or attended one of our amazing fundraising events – made it possible for more children to be home with families for their very first real Christmas. You have helped us come closer to reaching our goal of ending the institutionalization of children by 2050, and for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Please continue to support Lumos and help us to spread the word. Together we can give these children what every child needs and deserves – the love of a family.

J.K. Rowling

Founder and President of Lumos
