At A Moment of Magic, we take our volunteer work very seriously to best serve the children we are so privileged to meet.

In order to continuously improve, we send surveys to all the amazing organizations that we work with and we are so proud to share the results.

this survey is sent to every oraganization we work with after the event. At the time of publishing, 36 medical professionals, nonprofit partners, and parents of children we serve answered this survey from across our 9 character chapters.

"Our patients do not have these types of experiences often. As an inner city hospital, our families do not have the opportunities other communities may have. It is so nice to be able to bring smiles especially when kids are not feeling well."

"It was a pleasure to collaborate with A Moment of Magic to plan and implement this visit. I sincerely appreciate your flexibility and focus exclusively on the needs of the patients/families and hospital.

Sandy Walters, CCLS

"It made our patients experience feel more normal and gave them the appropriate distraction they needed! You were amazing! This has been some of our patients (and mine!) favorite visit."
Tracey Hawkins, CCLS

"I feel as though AMOM gives children a chance to interact with characters only seen on TV or in movies in a real life setting. They are able to see the people the look up to most and interact with them which is absolutely amazing to see. I am so absolutely honored to have AMOM at our recent event. You are all truly a joy to work with and we look forward to working with you all again!"
