No parent should have to deal with the hardship of a child with a chronic illness or even terminal disease. But…sadly, many do. Their days are filled with tears, tests, and treatments. Seldom is there joy, laughter, and escape. Then there are others who are raising developmentally challenged children that often require 24-hour a day care and some who will never be independent.
There are many hard days, many sad days, and many tears…
BUT–we want to change that!
Our team will bring a little fun and magic into the lives of these children and their families. Our goal is to visit them just to brighten their days with a little close-up magic or the show when possible There is no real agenda other than that. Where allowed, we are always willing to share the love and grace of Christ or to support the family with a loving ear or caring prayer. But…we always work within the rules of the hospital or organization that invites us in.
We already have one group that invites us twice a month just to “hang out” with these kids and their families. We are also invited to perform regularly at a Ronald McDonald house during the summer months. What’s more, we have a cancer camp organization in NC that has invited us to perform during their summer camps and we are reaching out to other such camps in nearby states to offer the same.
At a minimum…we will give these precious little ones at least a few minutes of quality entertainment, laughter, and amazement. In other words…we will bring a little happiness into their lives and thus– “Magic Smile.”
So how can you help with this exciting opportunity?
- Give. We need financial support! You can give by hitting the “Donate” button on this site or can become a monthly team supporter by visiting the “DONATE PAGE” and use the “subscribe” button. Part of your giving will go toward the purchasing of a special magic trick we will give each child in the hospital. That way they can have their very own ability to make some “magic.”
- Pray. Please pray that we will get into as many hospitals, group homes, or camps as possible and be able to minister to these precious children.
