It's back! Our annual event returns to celebrate Harry's adventure getting Hogwarts in his fourth year! We've revamped the look and now the front of the Hogwarts Express lights up...yes, an actual LED light!! How? The medal actually opens on a hinge to give you access to turn the light on and off! Your registration includes this awesome 3" medal, custom sublimated ribbon, and your own personalized digital bib!
Hogwarts is the home of many magical creatures and Antarctica is the home some amazing creatures too! We are honored to announce that our charity partner for Platform 9 3/4 Year Four is the Antarctic & Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC)! ASOC is a global network of conservation organizations seeking to preserve the world's last great wilderness, which belongs to all humankind. ASOC's mission is to protect the Antarctic and Southern Ocean’s unique and vulnerable ecosystems by speaking for Antarctica and its magnificent species - from krill to blue whales. Please visit www.asoc.org to learn more about this incredible organization! We will be supporting at least TWO research projects conducted by ASOC scientists including near-real-time tracking of Baleen Whales and determining the global population of Weddell Seals. And if we are extremely successful, we will be able to fund a third project to study Adélie penguins to determine the impact of rapidly changing sea ice on their ecosystem.
And don't forget your event shirt! Since we switched up the medal just a bit, we did the same with the shirts! A bold statement with red and gold, no one will question where you’re heading!
