Our Mission is to use the therapeutic power of magic and laughter to energize and strengthen seriously ill children in Chicago area hospitals, and aid their healing. We strive to reach young patients one-by-one regardless of their disease, medical situation or physical ability so that all children may benefit from this engaging and entertaining therapy.

Our Vision

To give every hospitalized child the chance to receive the benefits of participating in bedside magic. To grow slowly and smartly in size and method to continue to thoughtfully reach these children. To continue to foster the highest standards of personalized interaction and magic engagement and consistently improve our methods using magic as therapy to empower children so we strengthen the benefits of what we do and can apply these methods to teach others in new applications.
