Ed Barry shares the ‘Magic of Volunteering’

“One of the most fulfilling things I have ever done is joining OHM. About seven years ago I had been attempting to get involved in volunteering at Hope Children’s Hospital, not being part of an organization it was a difficult task. I witnessed an individual doing card magic at a local event and asked him about it, he began to tell me about this organization where he was able to go into children’s hospitals and do bedside magic for sick kids. Having no magical experience I had my doubts about getting involved. After an exhilarating 12 week training period I had the confidence, knowledge and tools to do something I didn’t think was ever possible. I am rewarded every single time I perform at the hospital with smiles, laughter and looks of astonishment. OHM has given me the opportunity to change these children’s lives if but just for the moment and take the pain and fear away and replace it with a smile or a laugh.”
