We’re super thankful to our friends at teamstarkid for hosting an awesome Equality FTW livestream tonight! They helped us raise over $2,000 and break 1,500 donors in just two hours, but their constant support is immeasurable.
If you missed the show or couldn’t donate tonight, our Equality FTW fundraiser is running through October 25th. You can get some awesome perks like Starkid’s exclusive Marauders-era prequel to the A Very Potter series, a Books Turn Muggles Into Wizards poster signed by Team Starkid, GeekyCon witchbands and portkeys to get you into signings and panels next summer, and lots more. Don’t forget that any and every donation of $10 or more automatically enters you into a contest to win a pillow signed
and defaced by Darren Criss.
As always, thank you for donating and spreading the word. We’re over halfway to our goal. Every donation, shoutout, and livestream is proof that fans are heroes.
Here’s another sneak peek at the Puppets of YouTube calendar. For the entire month of January, you can watch Snape brooding through an existential crisis while bright and fluffy snowflakes fall around him.
The Puppets of YouTube calendar will only ever be available through our Equality FTW fundraiser. Get it here.
Team Starkid will be live in your computer tonight at 8 pm ET/5 pm ET talking about A Very Potter Prequel, Equality FTW, and who knows what else. Watch here.
As you count down the hours, be sure to reserve your copy of A Very Potter Prequel. Purchase automatically enters you into the contest to win a pillow signed and doodled on by Darren Criss. Donate here.

Thank you for your question about our Not In Harry’s Name and Show Us The Report campaigns, 🎷🍩📧. Here’s an update on what we’ve been up to:
Last year, we partnered with an anti-slavery organization called Walk Free to grow our petition to over 400,000 signatures, which were delivered in person to Warner Bros. over the summer.
For anyone who doesn’t know, our petition is asking Warner Bros. to show us a report they have said they have proving the use of ethically-sourced chocolate in the production of the Harry Potter chocolates you can buy at Wizarding World and elsewhere. It’s been a four year effort and we’re happy to say that some real progress was made this year. Hopefully we’ll be able to announce some of the developments soon.
Additionally, as the weather is beginning to cool, our own Fair Trade Chocolate Frogs should be back in our shop soon.
If you’d like to support efforts like these, you can contribute to our annual fundraiser by donating here.

We’re celebrating Indigenous People’s Day in affirmation of what should be self-evident: much of what we know and enjoy has been made possible by atrocities committed against others. In order to truly move forward, we must acknowledge these crimes and make whatever reparations are possible.
Christopher Columbus’ “discovery” of America was followed by the genocide and enslavement of tens of millions of native people. His actions led to the transatlantic slave trade and centuries of violence and discrimination towards indigenous people. Yet we celebrate him as an American hero.
We applaud Seattle and Minneapolis in their recent shift away from Columbus Day, as well as Berkeley for first making the change in the early nineties. It is our hope that these are the first of many. Please join us in celebrating Indigenous People’s Day and moving towards a more honest, inclusive future.

Support equality. Win this pillow.
Darren volunteered to send personalized Christmas cards to twenty Equality FTW donors; that perk sold out in minutes. This is your second chance to get in on Darren’s goofy genius.
Any donation of $10 or more to our annual fundraiser will enter you to win this pillow signed - and defaced - by Darren himself. That means that 1) you’ll be supporting the fight for equality. 2) You can get yourself a guaranteed perk - like StarKid’s A Very Potter Prequel or something to make your GeekyCon 2015 even better - and have a chance to win, and 3) If you buy multiple perks, you’ll be entered to win multiple times.
Donate now and may the odds be ever in your favor.
Don’t forget that any $10 donation to Equality FTW enters you into this contest!
