Just released from Magicana:

Magicians have always spoken of the “magic community.” Well now more than ever is the time to prove that we are, indeed, a community.

To that end, Magicana is thrilled to follow the lead of the Slaight Family, and administer at their request, the Allan Slaight Relief Fund, a financial aid package for Canadian magicians hardest hit at this difficult time. The fund of $150,000 will be distributed by application for basic necessities of up to $500 per month per recipient for the next few months. You can learn more about it here:

It will not remotely replace the income magicians have lost because of canceled engagements, but it will, we hope, offer some assistance, and remind one another that we are a community. We can only weather this storm by working together.

As a reminder to others, particularly those in Canada, Magicana is registered charity and any financial contribution that you can make, large or small, will be added to this fund. There is a donation page on the site for those who can contribute. Tax receipts will be issued accordingly.

Outside of Canada, we encourage those of you of means, particularly means derived from magic, to consider setting up a similar fund for the magic community in your region.

Magicana is happy to share whatever knowledge we are learning from setting up and administrating the Allan Slaight Relief Fund. We can be reached at

Have a Magical Day!

I really didn't know how to explain it.
So I told them the truth, and they fell for it!
