Do you, your magic club or other magic-related organization do wonderful things for your community?
In the December issue of IBM's publication, The Linking Ring (v92, #12), Dennis Schick wrote "The Benevolence of Magic" (page 56). The focus of the article was examples of the magic community contributing to charitable causes and included a wonderful write-up of Canada's own Magicana for it's My Magic Hands, Senior Sorcery and Tony Eng Youth Fund initiatives. Read more about these programs at Magicana's blog, Sharing Wonder.
Below is an excerpt from an e-mail Dennis recently sent me:
But we had so many projects come up at the last minute, that we had to plan on a second article, later this Spring. So now I am looking for any other good examples of magic benevolence, whether by individuals (performing in hospitals), local clubs (raising funds for some good cause), or conventions (raising funds for a hunger drive).Feel free to post examples of your magical good deeds in the comments below, and be sure to e-mail Dennis directly!
I invite anyone with any ideas of examples they would like to tell me about, to write to me: crylds [at] att [dot] net. I am a member of Ring 29 in Little Rock, Arkansas. [Weird e-mail formatting by Canada's Magic to discourage e-mail harvesters.]
Thank you for your consideration.
Now I'll disappear. POOF!
