Merlin’s Magic Wand
Merlin’s Magic Want is a global children’s charity that “puts the magic back into the childhoods of seriously ill, disabled, and disadvantaged children” by providing them with tickets to various Merlin Entertainments attractions and travel grants for the kids and their families.
The organization’s most recent venture is “Taking the Magic to the Children” projects that bring the fun to kids who are not able to travel to attractions due to illness by adding sensory rooms and specially adapted playgrounds to hospitals and hospice centers in areas close to Merlin Entertainments locations.
