Remote Programming and Support for Children in Need

 

We are keeping the magic alive by increasing the number of "Character Portal Calls" available on our website by more than 60%. These are 30 minute private calls with the characters that allow us to continue to fulfill our mission while prioritizing the health and safety of all involved. We have made it a top priority to add as many calls, with as many characters as possible, as well as include volunteers that are proficient in Spanish and ASL so every child can participate in the magic.

If you have a child that might be interested, the steps are very simple. Just click this link [https://calendly.com/amomentofmagic] and book a date and time that works for you (all times are in EST), include your contact email, and we would reserve that time just for you (all dates and times are first come first serve). Then, we would call on the designated day and time and set up a one on one interaction for that specific child!

We also will be broadcasting live on Facebook every Wednesday at 2pm with a character hour!
