Mount Saint Vincent Students Bring Joy to Hospitalized Children

College of Mount Saint Vincent students Kylee McGrane and Margaret McAndrew bring joy by visiting hospitalized children dressed as princesses. Realizing that they resembled the main characters from the Disney movie Frozen, and inspired by their desire to serve, the two began a non-profit called A Moment of Magic. A video showcasing their organization has gone viral online with over 30 million views on Facebook.  Their newest initiative includes athletes dressed in their uniform and volunteers dressed as superheros. Soon, they hope to expand A Moment of Magic to involve other colleges.

The students’ effort reflects College of Mount Saint Vincent’s Leaders in Service Initiative, introducing a shared concern for others through their first year experience course.  Students continue their commitment by volunteering with ongoing projects on hunger, homelessness, and other issues.
