What Would Dumbledore Do?

Just in time for the opening of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows part 1, we would like to draw attention to the good work of real-life Dumbledore's Army: the Harry Potter Alliance.The non-profit organization was founded by (non-slacker) Andrew Slack with the goals of fighting poverty, illiteracy, social inequality, global warming, and even genocide. It recently celebrated its 5th birthday.

The group recently launched its Deathly Hallows Campaign, a campaign to destroy real-life horcruxes from November 2010 until July 2011. The first horcrux was revealed to be Starvation Wages. According to this article, "The HPA sent a letter to Time Warner inviting them to consider switching their Harry Potter chocolate merchandise to Fair Trade chocolate, thereby re-associating good labor and economic conditions with the Harry Potter name."
