"I have always wanted to help those needing a little guidance to get back on track...mentor and empower those looking for a helping hand, reminding them how strong they really are....."
~Michele Rust - Founder Making Magic
Areas of expertise:
Working as a catalyst to provide much needed funds to established organizations working to better and empower the lives of impoverished, men, women and children.
"Never doubt that that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~Margaret Meade
Making Magic's goal is to act as a catalyst connecting the less fortunate in our community with those organizations and individuals who can help them reach their goals.
To accomplish this we conduct various fund raisers throughout the year donating a portion of the proceeds to established, like minded organizations that posses the tools to shelter, empower, teach or feed those in need throughout the Chicago community.
We are not here to re-invent the wheel, simply to make sure the wheel of giving continues spinning and these wonderful organizations are able to continue on their individual missions. Simply put, our mission is, connecting those in need with those of means.

Funds for Colleen

Making Magic joined Leopardo Construction for a fantastic night of friends and fundraising to help raise college funds for a little girl who lost her father to cancer in 2012. An amazing night of food, music and a lot of laughs.
International Women's Day
March 8, 2013
Making Magic joined Miriam Apartments on Chicago's near north side as they celebrated International Women's Day. We were excited to share some of what we've learned with these wonderful women. This was a truly inspired day and we all learned so much from all of the wonderful women who participated. Looking forward to lending a hand next year as well.
