so they claim money goes to charity, but absolutely no indication of how much..... makes you highly suspicious that its a negligible token amount.

thats great, and you would hope the figure in the last link means close to £3.50 would be going to charity.... but as i said, we have no idea because they are not disclosing that information. and you have to ask: why not?

I think JKk.Rowling has proved her dedication to both Comic Relief (by creating the first two books exclusively for Comic relief) and Lumos (her own charity which she pumps millions of her own money into). I think it's a bit unfair to suggest that She is shafting these two charities with this set by only giving a 'token' amount. Here it states she's given $160 million of her fortune away, and that's excludung the £18 million Comic Relief have made out of the books she wrote for them.

I think her record stands for itself

looked like twelve monkeys dvd, disappointing.
