Open Heart Magic is a nonprofit that was created in hospitals to help kids at their hospital bedsides. They go in at the toughest times for kids - during relapses, when they’re receiving tough cancer treatments, or after surgery when they're trying to get better.
Kids being treated in hospitals for days, weeks and months are often sad and scared. The Hospital Magicians – volunteers who are specially trained to work in a medical environment - go to intensive care, pediatrics, the burn unit…wherever there are kids trying to get better. They help kids laugh and feel empowered by teaching them magic at their bedsides. There are over 150 Hospital Magicians and Open Heart Magic will visit over 12,000 kids at their bedsides this year.
