The campaign was launched on December 2nd by novelist Julia Golding. According to Entertainment Weekly, she signed a contract with the homeowner and gave her three months to raise the money she needed to buy the home.
According to the donation page on the project’s website, about 6% of the $ 6 million goal was raised. Only $ 5.3 million is needed to buy the house itself, but additional money will be spent on repairing Tolkien’s garden, building hobbit holes, and creating a “Smaug hideout for pipe smokers.” ..
Tolkien lived at home from 1930 to 1947. According to the FAQ on the fundraising website, the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings were written in the house, and Tolkien’s children grew up there.
