Hasbro goes to work for a day for the MagiKids charity as part of the company's Global Day of Joy initiative.

In helping the educational resources charity, which supports educators and community groups by using Magic: The Gathering as a vehicle for learning and community building, Hasbro put together more than 800 school kids filled with Magic cards, accessories, and learning curriculums.  

"These kids are going to bring the educational benefits of Magic: The Gathering to students around the country," says Cynthia Williams, CEO of Wizards of the Coast.

"This is the largest pack build ever for MagiKids, which is super exciting," says MagiKids' Matt Decker.  "We're just trying to smash as much stuff in boxes and get it out across the U.S. as fast as possible."

A 501(c)(3) charity, MagiKids ships kits to teachers and mentors across the U.S. free of cost.  To support their efforts, you can make a donation.

Interested educators and community leaders who are interested in bringing MagiKids to their area can make a request online.
