Points of Light Honors 6000th Recipient of the Daily Point of Light Award
Inspired by a fondness for children and Disney’s “Frozen,” Kylee McGrane and her friend Maggie began visiting hospitals dressed as the “Frozen” princesses to cheer up children undergoing treatment. What started as a service project blossomed into A Moment of Magic – an organization focused on spreading hope and raising awareness for pediatric cancer. Student volunteers visit hospitals and attend nonprofit fundraisers dressed as fairytale characters or superheroes, with the goal of bringing joy – and a little magic – to children and families in need of support.

Finance Advocate Champions New Financial Literacy Education Standards
“Volunteering, in general for me, is responsible citizenship. But, it’s also about diversity, inclusion, advocacy, friendship, team-building, and impact – all that is woven together in the simple act of service.”
