J.K. Rowling Sends Magical Gift to the Himalayas

This shouldn’t be making me cry, but here we are.

For many millennial in the U.S. and Europe, Harry Potter was a life-changing experience. It was the first book I ever read. I was picked-on in school a lot and would regularly pretend to be sick so I didn’t have to go. Which means I fell behind my classmates in our lessons. I was in remedial reading classes until 4th grade when my school librarian put a copy of The Sorcerer’s Stone in my hands. I’ve been a total nerdy bookworm ever since. 

So isn’t it appropriate that J.K. Rowling’s work is still making that difference today? She got a tweet a while back from a teacher in the Himalayas named Sabbah. Sabbah asked if Rowling could one day visit the school to meet her 12-year-old student. 

Most celebrities (particularly those of Rowling’s status) might have brushed this off. But not J.K. 

The best part? She actually followed through. Look at all this stuff, 


Of course, this isn’t the first time Rowling has gone the extra mile for her fans. In 2016, she surprised a Scottish library by attending the party they invited her to. 

Earlier this year, she surprised a ‘broke’ dad who bonded with his daughter through the HP series.

J.K. Rowling makes me believe in the good of humanity.
