The magic continues, it just looks different.
COVID-19 has changed the way that we create magic. But through the support of our community, we have been able to ensure that the magic continues for children battling serious illnesses.

A Moment of Magic Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides medically vulnerable children with creative programming, outlets, and support to foster imagination, friendship, and hope through our college-student volunteers.
We provide a variety of services to children with medical vulnerabilities, all at no cost. We focus on bringing creative play through arts, crafts, music, and literature to children in hospitals, their homes, or remotely via technology.
Every 60 seconds, a child requires medical care. A Moment of Magic operates on the mission of “restoring the magic” of childhood for these children. Our high-quality programming infuses arts, crafts, music, and literature to create moments of fun and play during otherwise scary and traumatic experiences for children that are hospitalized.
We are the original and largest organization of our kind with 22 chapters all over the United States and have activated more than 1,000+ college student volunteers.
Operating with the mission of
RESTORING THE MAGIC OF BELIEVING AT A TIME WHEN A CHILD NEEDS TO 'JUST-BE-A-KID' AND REMINDING THEM TO BE
Brave, Strong, & Fearless.
On September 26th at 7 pm ET, we will be hosting Keeping the Magic: A Live Stream, a benefit variety show presented by A Moment of Magic to raise money for our work in bringing creative programming to medically vulnerable children. This premiere live stream event allows us to share the magic of our usual September Night of Magic Gala with a larger crowd, in a virtual, safe, and socially distant format.
At the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, we created a motto for this challenging time: the magic continues, it just looks different. Keeping the Magic: A Live Stream will help us ensure that the magic continues for children battling serious illnesses.
Together, you can help us make magic.
We activate more than 1,100 student volunteers at more than 20 colleges and universities in hands-on, unique service work.
We partner with more than 300 hospitals and nonprofit organizations from around the country to provide magic for free.
