It’s just so fulfilling to bring a smile to their faces and often times they are bringing smiles to you
I’ve been involved with A Moment of Magic for a little over a year now. Our organization does programming for children who have pediatric cancer and other medical vulnerabilities. Our chapter started at Western Michigan University in 2016.
We have many characters including Elsa, Anna and Ariel. Bronson Children’s Hospital was one of the first visits I ever went on as a character. It really showed why we do what we do. Going into those rooms, you don’t know what children are going through. We spend time with the patients, sing songs, and play games.
We have a whole group of volunteers who have a really big passion for children. Most of us are going into service related fields. We just want to make the patients still feel like kids when they are in the hospital. There are days when it can be hard to get dressed up and be in character, but when you get to the end it’s just so fulfilling to bring a smile to their faces and often times they are bringing smiles to you too.
