African Magic Trick Appeal

We need your un-used magic tricks

Magic Moments has an ongoing initiative started in 2011 and it’s a great way for magicians to get involved without necessarily creating a show or performance. Magic Moments are looking for all of your unwanted, unused magic tricks, which would be suitable for children. 

We are asking if magicians could send us one simple magic trick in the post. On The National Day of Magic each year we will send all of the donated tricks collated through the year to Kariba, Africa where the WI who work tirelessly, will make sure the magic tricks go to the orphaned children in and around Zimbabwe. All we ask is that the tricks have suitable instructions and not be overly complicated. We are hoping in future years to have magicians travel to these remote areas and teach the children magic. Our WI contact Sue says ‘this sounds very exciting and I will always redirect to other Institutes. Of course the children could do with a bit of magic in their lives!’

To take part. Package up your gift of a magic trick in a jiffy envelope and either:

  • post it (click here to email us for the UK postal address)
  • Start a collection at your Magic Society and send in one parcel. Contact us at Magic Moments and we will arrange collection on behalf of the society.
  • If you are coming to any one of the magic shows listed on this website throughout the year, then simply bring your gift along and pass it onto myself or one of my co presenters of the magic shows and we will post it on your behalf.
