Giving back at Christmas
Natalie & I are so busy this time of year with company parties, family reunions, schools shows, private shows and more. In our spare time we get into the holiday spirit by doing our part to give back. This year we performed our 24 hour magic show to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network the day before Thanksgiving. We perform a free magic show for the Ronald McDonald house in Charlottesville each & every year. We purchase toys for the toys for tots program and we even pick a child from the angel tree program.
During the year we visit children's hospitals and nursing homes while we are on the road but we really step it up at Christmas time. The pictures above are of me performing at the University of Virginia Hospital children's ward for their Backstage Virginia television show that is broadcasted through the hospital and is taped in front of a live audience. We know we are truly blessed to be able to do what we love for a living. Even though our schedule is sometimes hectic, we know we are so lucky to be full time performers.
With the holiday season in full swing it can get very hectic. We all need to take time out to remember the reason for the season!
