J. K. Rowling is a pretty awesome woman. She wrote Harry Potter, she is the pen behind Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, she regularly calls out stupidity on Twitter, and her charity, Lumos, helps children worldwide.
That aforementioned charity, Lumos, is now hosting a fundraiser with the grand prize being: a trip to the set of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel in London. This was announced yesterday on a livestream with actors Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein) and Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski), which you can watch here:

The winner will join producer David Heyman, and Director, David Yates for an on-set visit and VIP experience. They will also get air transportation for two courtesy of American Airlines, a three night stay in a London hotel, and tickets to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter.
And, that’s not all – there’s one additional prize: an original painting of Newt Scamander, done by Henry Fraser, which will be signed by J.K Rowling herself, as well as Eddie Redmayne, who plays Newt, and other cast members.
How to participate? Well, every $12 donated gets you one entry for the grand prize, $24 gets you a digital thank you from Alison Sudol and Dan Fogler, $48 get you a print featuring illustrations by MinaLima from the Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them Screenplay.
If you can and want to donate more, then for $72 can also get you a black “be the light” t-shirt, and $2500 means a hardcover copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them signed by J.K. Rowling – though only for the first ten.

The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Sequel is set for release November 16th, 2018.
