College students making unforgettable memories for children

College-Age Students Bring Magic to Children in Need Through Nonprofit Organization

Are you looking for some heartwarming news to brighten your day? Look no further than the incredible work being done by college students across the country through A Moment of Magic Foundation. This national nonprofit organization is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, especially those battling illnesses.

The premise is simple but powerful: college-age students dress up as beloved characters like princesses and visit children in hospitals and schools. The impact of these visits goes far beyond just putting a smile on a child’s face – it brings a sense of joy, hope, and companionship during difficult times.

Founder and executive director, Kylee McGrane-Zarnoch, was inspired to start A Moment of Magic after seeing the impact of her own efforts to brighten the days of her hospitalized grandparents. Her personal experiences fueled her passion to create a community where children feel seen, heard, and valued.

Since its inception in 2014, A Moment of Magic has touched the lives of over 125,000 children, thanks to dedicated students like Jada Sanchez. Sanchez, who became involved with the organization while attending East Carolina University, helped bring the magic to Charlotte when she enrolled at UNC Charlotte.

The impact of A Moment of Magic goes beyond just the children they visit – it also leaves a lasting impression on the volunteers themselves. For Sanchez, the opportunity to make a difference for children facing similar challenges to her own diagnosis of type I diabetes was a driving force in her commitment to the organization.

Visiting children at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, McGrane-Zarnoch and Sanchez shared the poignant message from the organization’s book “Your Magic” – that embracing our uniqueness and sharing our true selves with the world can have a profound impact.

As McGrane-Zarnoch aptly puts it, “Small acts of kindness make a big difference.” The dedication and passion of these college students to bring moments of joy and connection to children in need are truly inspiring. And as we navigate our own lives, it’s a reminder that embracing who we are and spreading kindness can have a ripple effect of positivity.

So, the next time you’re feeling down or overwhelmed, remember the work being done by A Moment of Magic and the impact of simple acts of kindness. Let’s all commit to making a difference, no matter how small, and create a world where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.
