Our Executive Director, Aaron Shoemaker, has hand-delivered more than 20 decks of @officialbicyclecards
to shelters all over the Houston area in the weeks he's been there assisting with #Hurricane #Harvey
"People take comfort in the familiar. And every one has a favorite card game, so playing cards can really comfort a person," he said in a recent interview. "I do a card trick or two and hand out a few decks. It's not a lot, and I'm just an amateur magician, but it can really brighten someone's day." He learned one of his favorite tricks watching a youtube video of Dan and Dave, the @bucktwins
"Someone experiencing tragedy laughs at my #cardistry
or is amazed by a slight of hand and suddenly they smile. That's the real power of magic."
