I am now 40. Midlife crisis? Maybe. But more than that it's wanting a BIG goal with a purpose behind it. My name is Janet Haas, and I am signed up for my first marathon. EEEEEK!
While this year may look different and certainly not what I anticipated, your support is even more critical. Open Heart Magic, is an amazing charity that empowers sick kids by performing magic 1-on-1 at their bedsides in hospitals during a scary time – OHM truly ‘give kids their magic back!’ OHM volunteers saw over 10,000 sick kids last year alone. More funds are needed as they pilot new ways to bring the power of magic to kids in hospitals via digital means because everyone needs some hope and laughter these days.
Open Heart Magic is an organization I believe in. Two years ago, my daughter Katelynn who was 5 at the time, was in the hospital for a couple of nights for a severe form of strep. While we didn't have a magician come to the room, we did have a nurse drop off some crafts and paints. I can tell you the look of joy and excitement in her face and to be able to feel normal/distracted for a couple of hours was everything. The idea of a magician coming to the room especially in the case of something more severe is something that would give strength and hope and certainly would be cherished by all involved. Everyone I know and have met at this organization are extremely passionate, and I am humbled to be able to contribute.
Please support me and Open Heart Magic. DO IT FOR ME AND THE KIDS!
