Charlotte sent us the cutest thank you note (with awesome pictures), “Thank You for this trip. I loved it. I went on all of the Harry Potter rides – they had dragons and dementors – awesome! I went on loopty loop rides, Hulk and Rock and Roll – I loved them. I got a broom; the tips light up blue. I love Meg’s Smile.” We love you too Charlotte!

Because of your support, we can send children and their families to such cool places like Harry Potter World – thank you!
