Happy birthday Harry Potter & J.K. Rowling!

Harry Potter is probably one of the most influential books in the 21st century. It not only lead to movies that created stars like Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe, but also created many merchandises and even a section of a theme park.

Created and written by author J.K. Rowling, the book series based on the fictional character Harry Potter is an adventure about magic, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the connection and loyalty of friendship along the way.

The Harry Potter franchise is so popular, they have sold more than 500 million books worldwide, in 80 languages, but one of the most well-known facts about the series is that Harry Potter’s birthday just so happens to fall on July 31st — the same day as real-life author J.K. Rowling’s birthday, who is turning 54 this year!

J.K. Rowling, who has an estimated net worth of just under $1 billion as of May 2019, hasn’t always had it easy. Sadly, her mother, Anne, died from multiple sclerosis in 1990 (before Harry Potter was published) after a long 10-year battle with the disease. According to an article written by Business Insider, “The loss of her own mother would eventually lead Rowling to make Harry Potter suffer the death of his parents” in the series. An inspiration, J.K. Rowling was able to transform the pain from her life into one of the biggest positives.

Rowling never forgot where she came from and has donated millions of dollars to charities. She even established her own children’s foundation, Lumos, in 2005. According to the website “Lumos’ mission is to end the use of orphanages and institutions for vulnerable children around the world by 2050.”
