Magicians Without Borders performs magic shows for children in refugee camps, orphanages and hospitals around the world - often in war torn places where love, laughter and magic are desperately needed. Their website is www.magicianswithoutborders.com.
We are raising funds to send MWB founders Tom and Janet to Afghanistan, where they will perform for more than 10,000 children in orphanages and refugee camps on the outskirts of Kabul, Jalalabad, and Mazar-e Sharif. They will also teach a magic class at the Afghan Educational Circus for Children (www.afghanmmcc.org), where a group of magic students have been practicing since 2009.
Tom and Janet are 100% volunteer and their work overseas depends upon gifts from individuals. Tom and Janet's in-country meals and accommodation have been donated. Donors have also agreed to match, dollar for dollar, up to $2,000.
