akt announced as next WRC charity partner

  No matter the dangers, no matter the risks, the Doctor’s confidence has allowed them to turn to anyone — from a dishwasher to a demigod — and say exactly who they were. What if the expression of who you are puts you in danger? What if being yourself poses a risk to your own safety? This is the very real, very frightening situation that LGBTQ+ youth are put in when they feel they have to choose between expressing themselves […]

NBC News: RTI’s Brian Biggs and a year of COVID-19 response

This organization and the mission it pursues are the product of ideas and principles held by our president and co-founder, Brian Biggs. But his desire to change the world for the better doesn’t limit itself to Random Tuesday’s fanthropic (fandom-inspired philanthropy) pursuits. When he’s not stirring up excitement among the tens of thousands of global virtual fitness event participants, or coordinating with like-minded charitable groups to improve the world in measurable, tangible ways, he keeps working for the greater good: […]

US Quidditch announced as next PHRC charity partner

Brooms up! The impact of the global pandemic has been felt from one corner of the globe to the other, from families to businesses, from government agencies to the performing arts, from close-knit communities to casual acquaintances.  And what of sporting organizations? What — quite particularly — of an organization that plays and champions a sport near and dear to those who know the “magical” feeling of a hard-fought victory on the pitch? If the local and regional shutdowns had […]

Unite to Light announced as next WRC charity partner

Think for a moment about the expression “kept in the dark” as referring to someone being put at a disadvantage. Over a billion people live without electricity. Access to clean, affordable light and energy is critical to improving health, education and prosperity.  A child’s education can be dramatically hindered by the inability to read or study after sundown. In moments of disaster response, reliable light and power are critical to first responders, health care personnel, and the victims themselves. The […]

On PHRC’s Seventh Birthday

One year ago today, Potterhead Running Club celebrated it’s sixth birthday. On that day we had no idea what the coming year had in store for us.   It was a year of loss and tragedy. It was a year of stress and insecurity. We stayed home. Toilet paper became the currency of the realm. We found a new appreciation for teachers, restaurant employees, and grocery store workers. We learned how to Zoom. We made bread…so much bread.   All […]

Dentaid announced as next PHRC charity partner

Imagine suffering the agony of toothache, but having no way of seeing a dentist. Lack of dental care — dental access — is a widespread problem, particularly serious for those dealing with financial hardship or homelessness. Simply put, the people who need the services the most are the ones who get them the least. Sadly, more than 70 percent of the global population has no access to dental care of any kind. At this very moment, more than a billion […]

Clean Ocean Access announced as next WRC charity partner

We can purchase groceries off the shelf that have been wrapped and shipped intact from hundreds of miles away; we can order a gadget online that comes safely sealed from halfway across the world.  But this convenience comes with a price, and the planet itself is paying it. Every year, human activity leads to tons of plastic debris ending up in ocean waters, with a huge impact on the health of our shorelines and coastal ecosystems. If we work to […]

Adult Literacy League announced as next PHRC charity partner

Education is the single greatest tool to overcome a myriad of societal injustices. It’s the path to a better future for everyone, yet millions of adults read at or below a fifth grade reading level.  Illiteracy turns simple, everyday tasks into real problems. Reading product labels, following street signs, or filling out job applications can be difficult and frustrating.  Our charity partner for the first PHRC event of 2021 is the Adult Literacy League! The Adult Literacy League helps over […]

The RTI Winter 2020 Direct Impact Project: Kids’ Bandages

This group, this community, this family of fanthropists has done some incredible things over the years, no matter the challenges. You might say we’ve “stuck together” through it all. It’s time once again to see what we can do when we direct our energy towards one goal: bringing a smile to the face of kids who need it the most. We couldn’t be more pleased to announce that the Winter 2020 DIP will be supporting Noah’s Bandage Project! The organization was […]
