On Twitter, Rowling said, “Today’s the 22nd anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, but I’m going to be honest and say that it feels inappropriate to talk about fictional deaths today. Too many people are losing loved ones in the real world.”

“So on this anniversary of a great wizarding victory, I’m thinking of the people who’re out there doing their jobs to protect us and our way of life,” she adds. “As ever in a crisis of this sort, the poorest and most vulnerable are hit hardest, so in honour of the Battle of Hogwarts, I’ll be making a donation of £1m.”

 The Harry Potter author said that half of the money will go to Crisis, an organization that helps homeless people. The other half will go to Refuge, to support victims of domestic abuse.
