Murphy's Magic Begins Giving Magic to Military Folks

Category: News   Posted by: C. DENNIS SCHICK

 RANCHO CORDOVA, CA – October 9, 2015 - Murphy's Magic, International Wholesaler, is striving to bring magical moments to our military.  Murphy’s Magic will donate magic products to be included in Operation Gratitude care packages which are sent to active deployed military, veterans, wounded warriors, first responders and new recruits.

Why send magic to military people? Syndie Anderson, a spokesman for Murphy's, said: "The thought behind sending them magic is that for those overseas and those new recruits, it might just bring them something other than war and violence to focus on, even for just a second.  Also, those who learn it might bring a little joy and a magical moment for themselves and their platoons.  Also, it's something really cool they learned for when they come home.  Lastly, the knowledge of even a little magic can be a bargaining tool for them to use while in the field.  Believe it or not, Operation Gratitude sends candy to them now so active military personnel can give it to children within cities in hopes that they will tell the military life-saving information, such as if there are bombs nearby.  Magic just might do the same thing.
