HELP HOCUS POCUS & GET GREAT PERKS ...like a magic lesson with David Blaine!
EMPOWERING THROUGH MAGIC
As many of you know, Conjuring Arts Research Center's outreach arm is the Hocus Pocus Project, which teaches magic to disadvantaged youth and adults. Since 2007 we've empowered over 10,000 children and adults throughout New York City by teaching magic at children's hospitals, veterans' hospitals, community centers and in the juvenile detention system. The results are astounding - in just one hour-long class, new students can demonstrate their magical powers!
We have been asked by the New York City's Department of Education to expand to 18 group homes in the juvenile detention system. This will QUADRUPLE our size and will mean that we will be teaching ALL the youth in the non-secure juvenile detention system of New York City. BUT WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
In order to fund this expansion we started a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo.com with a goal of raising $150,000 by June 27! Please help us achieve this goal by contributing now! Perks include a magic lesson with David Blaine, a personal magic show with David Roth, and a tour of David Blaine's secret, hidden office in Lower Manhattan!

The Hocus Pocus Project is Conjuring Arts' (501(c)(3)) outreach arm which brings professional magicians to disadvantaged kids and adults to teach them magic. Since 2007 their weekly instruction has helped to empower participants and brighten their lives. They are expanding throughout New York City in 2014 with plans for nationwide expansion in 2015.
Magic instructors teach children in hospitals, community centers and juvenile centers. They also teach adults in VA hospitals. Children, enlisted men and veterans have all experienced the benefits of learning magic through the Hocus Pocus Project.
