THE STORY:

My mom, Mary Jane Martin, has been a volunteer for Open Heart Magic for just about a year now. In that time, I have seen first hand the benefits that this non-profit brings to sick children! The magic she performs not only makes the days of children every time she goes to DuPage Hospital, but the families days are brightened as well. Here is some more information about this amazing non-profit:

About OHM

Open Heart Magic has pioneered an innovative way to reach children who are being treated for serious illness through the surprise, excitement and wonder of magic performed at their hospital bedside.

Our personalized interactions help children feel special, more confident and empowered during a scary and stressful time. By inviting them to be a part of the interaction, we energize kids and help them find the strength they need to heal. Because our Bedside Magic performances are one-on-one, we’re able to work with kids of all ages, regardless of physical or developmental restrictions. Our performances benefit the parents and siblings of these patients who are experiencing stress as well.

Open Heart Magic has seen incredible growth since it’s inception in 2004. The community of rock star volunteer magicians has grown drastically. In 2012 there were 38 magicians. And beginning in 2016, there are 120 magicians changing the hospital experience across Chicago.
