We just wrapped up another successful My Magic Hands session at Holland Bloorview Kids Hospital and we could not have done it without the extraordinary dedication of Holland Bloorview staff and volunteers.
A major factor to client success is the incredible individual attention participants receive from our “magic coaches” – aka staff and volunteers. Through focused coaching, participants learn the importance of having a mentor while they learn magic tricks customized to meet their goals. Coaches become the voice of encouragement that is essential in developing their self-confidence and self-esteem – two “must-haves” for the Big Show.
For our last group, what a Big Show it was!
Family members and other hospital staff gathered to watch our magicians perform their magic learned throughout the session. The Big Show was a chance for our participants to shine and show hard work truly does pay off. We are very proud of our graduates and congratulate everyone.
We are so grateful for the enthusiasm, time and effort our volunteers, Aneesha Nair and Aletheia Chiang, have given so selflessly into our program along with the amazing staff of Occupational, Speech and Physical Therapists who made sure our magicians were well rehearsed and prepared. We look forward to working with this team again on our next session and wish them the best of luck on their future endeavours.
