A Magic Penny is a Nonprofit organization offering volunteer opportunities for families who want to model and lead a philanthropic lifestyle with their children.
We schedule events in varying areas of philanthropy, thereby providing opportunities both for giving back to meaningful causes, and an avenue of self-discovery for each child.
A Magic Penny was inspired by Founder Lauren Alon’s generous, loving mother-in-law’s philanthropic nature and magical presence. Bila Alon’s memory lives in our hearts and so we strive to share her guiding light with the world. She demonstrated how giving is always gratifying, and she often sang The Magic Penny song, ‘love is something if you give it away, give it away, give it away. Love is something if you give it away, you end up having more.’
So, it is in Bila’s honor that A Magic Penny was founded on July 15, 2015. A Magic Penny provides a supportive and nurturing environment that empowering parents to introduce altruism, social awareness, community and environmental care to children through volunteer activities.
This meaningful and heartwarming journey brings Bila’s legacy into the everyday lives of her children and grandchildren and is now shared with great joy to other families. Join us in sharing Bila’s legacy and the song in her heart. Just like a magic penny, we aim to spread love and share in the joy of giving back through service.
