A Moment of Magic at UNC Chapel Hill
Who we are and what we do
A Moment of Magic Foundation at UNC Chapel Hill is a chapter of the national 501(c)(3) non-profit and was founded in 2018. We operate under the mission of "restoring the magic of believing at at a time when a child needs to 'just-be-a-kid', and reminding them to be brave, strong, and fearless." This is accomplished by providing emotional support to children battling serious illnesses with fairytale character and superhero visits. Visits occur in children's hospitals, social service institutions (such as the Ronald McDonald House), family homes, large events (such as 5ks or THONs), and so on. All volunteers are students at UNC, and meet weekly to be trained on a plethora of volunteer topics (e.g. hospital etiquette, working with non-verbal children, working with individuals with mental disabilities, etc.) All services are provided free of charge to the family or organization.
