Nerdy Non-Profit Week Day 2: Edmonton Potterwatch Institute of Charity (EPIC)

“Edmonton Potterwatch Institute for Charity, otherwise known as EPIC, is a non-profit society that harnesses the passion surrounding the Harry Potter series to promote activism within its community.”

That’s the mission statement on EPIC’s Facebook Group. They operate under the umbrella of the Harry Potter Alliance and have been raising money, collecting goods and hosting events (like their Yule Ball) for a variety of charities (such as the iHuman Youth Society).

They usually meet once a month (outside of the events they host) and you can find out all the details on how to use your love of Harry Potter to better the world around you by clicking here.
