Believe

The magic of Magic Moments would not be possible without the assistance of our wonderful volunteers. That’s why we call them Magic Makers! We depend upon the time, energy and dedication of over 200 Magic Makers throughout the state of Alabama to help make dreams come true. Our Magic Makers come from all walks of life – students to senior citizens, parents and families and even corporate volunteer teams. Magic Makers bring joy to our children as they grant magic moments and the emotional rewards they receive from doing so are beyond measure.

Magic Moments has a variety of volunteer opportunities to fit everyone's interest level and schedule:

GRANT A MAGIC MOMENT

Granting a magic moment is the best way to get involved. Once a magic moment has been approved a Magic Maker is assigned to each recipient. The Magic Maker serves as the liaison to the family throughout the planning and implementation of the magic moment. You can choose the type of magic moment and whether it is taking a child on a shopping spree, delivering a laptop computer or seeing a family off at the airport for their trip -- you will personally share in their joy and excitement.

We do require our Magic Makers attend a one-time training session before working with the children we serve. If you are interested in becoming a Magic Maker, please email Statewide Magic Moments Coordinator Kaitlin Bitz at kaitlin.bitz@childrensal.org. The next training session is Wednesday, November 13th from 5:30-7 p.m. at ServisFirst Bank (850 Shades Creek Parkway, Birmingham). Training sessions can be planned for other areas of the state upon request.
