What is Max Cares?
Max Cares provides opportunities to experience live performances, workshops and private meet-and-greets with Max Darwin (The Amazing Max) for underprivileged, terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children and their families. During the COVID-19 crisis we have pivoted our mission to better serve those currently in need.
** COVID-19 Update – Max Cares has three areas of focus:
- Children of NYC health care professionals, first responders, and essential workers.
- Families dealing with pediatric cancer and other illnesses.
- Families in under-served areas of NYC.
Will you help me? Donations can pay for anything from one family’s virtual magic lesson, to an entire group lesson for kids quarantined in a hospital, a thank you party for the families of first responders, and so much more. Trust me we know enough kids out there that could benefit from your kindness.DONATE TO MAX CARES
“The Amazing Max evoked smiles and laughs from The Children’s Inn residents, such needed enjoyment during such uncertain times. The show enabled all eight children to remain in engaged while at the same time showcasing what they learned from Max. The children were not ready for the show to end, Max knows how keep children’s attention with his wit and humor. Will definitely be planning another event with him!” – Tori Seal,
Education Program Coordinator at The Children’s Inn at NIHh
MAX CARES MISSION:
Max Cares provides opportunities to experience live performances, workshops and private meet-and-greets with Max Darwin (The Amazing Max) for underprivileged, terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children and their families. Through magic and the healing abilities of laughter, Max Cares aims to empower and engage children that otherwise would not have an opportunity to experience live theater or interactive dramatic play due to various circumstances. Max Cares focuses on the individual needs of each child or group, and crafts an unforgettable performance that through laughter and wondrous theatrical happenings, leaves the audience spellbound!
Every child deserves a little magic in their lives, especially those facing big challenges. But some circumstances limit families and their ability to seek out these opportunities. Max Cares envisions a world where every child, regardless of their health or financial situation, is given the chance to be immersed in a magical world of imagination and wonder.
Max Darwin, The Amazing Max, first appeared on stage before he could walk! His history of performance comes with a passion for connecting with audiences and serving his community. Max pictures a world filled with laughing children who can, even just for a moment, forget about whatever burdensome situation they may be facing and live in the magical moment of Theater!
