The Ickabog, J.K. Rowling’s fairy tale published during the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago, is still helping people around the world. The author shared the news today that, thanks to the all sales worldwide, her charity trust Volant was able to donate over £8 millions to more than 70 international charities to help alleviate the social effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This adds up to the donation made back in May 2021, when J.K Rowling donated £1 million of royalties from The Ickabog to help fight the COVID-19 crisis in India.
