We are more than just gifts.  We are about Loving, Caring and Sharing and truly spreading the spirit and the magic of Christmas to those in despair.We will visit over 400 families and thousands of patients in care facilities throughout the city this year to bring the Christmas spirit into their homes and hearts. We would love to have you be a part of this year’s experience, whether you donate time, money or simply help us spread the word. As you may know, The Magic of Christmas is a not-for-profit charity focused on delivering the Christmas Spirit of loving, caring and sharing to many.  This is where we differ from many other charities. The Magic of Christmas brings laughter, songs, hugs, as well as, gifts, necessities and referrals to other support groups in our community.  We work with City of Calgary social services and the Calgary Police Service to make sure Santa doesn’t miss anyone who needs a special visit. Every Christmas Eve, we load Calgary Transit buses, magically transformed into reindeer sleighs, with Santa and his elves and we visit homes and hospital rooms of people who are in despair.  Despair can come in many forms, be it emotional, financial or physical.  They may have had a death in their immediate family, lost a job, gotten a medical diagnoses that has been difficult,  or they are spending Christmas in a care facility away from their loved ones, etc. No matter the reason, we work hard to make sure that those in despair experience loving, caring and sharing during a time of the year that is supposed to be joyful. Please view our website to find out how you can help, how to refer someone for Santa’s route or how to donate.  We are forever grateful for your kindness and generosity. Yours Truly, signature
