Dear Friends,

It is a joy to be able to exercise one's creative inclinations. However, life has not afforded some of us the opportunity to learn that we have "something to offer". Feeling worth and being able to contribute to the well-being of others is part of what makes us human. I watched a video of a people laughing, sharing and listened as the narrator of the video said that through the efforts of the Hocus Pocus Project, some participants experienced giving positive eye contact for the first time in their life. People deserve to have this type of personal dignity. I hope to get your help in playing a small part in sustaining this gift. I am not personally involved with the project, but after seeing the PM in my Café inbox, I wanted to help. That is what this thread is about...

Giving the people the gift of sharing their gifts

So, I am working on creating an ebook with materials from kind folks to help fund the good work of the Hocus Pocus Project, which serves disadvantaged kids and adults by teaching them magic as a means of empowerment. See here:

www.hocuspocusproject.org


Each of us can certainly relate to a desire to contribute to our communities and gift experiences to others. I want to help people do just exactly that. Here is what I propose:

A charity/funding compilation ebook which features mentalism and mental magic (directed towards the mentalism/mental magic community), the sale of which paid directly via Paypal to the Hocus Pocus Project (aside from normal Paypal fees, if applicable). Purchasers can email me a copy of their receipt and receive their copy. Here is what we need donated:

1. Creative materials (routines, nuances and essays)

2. Editing/revising help

3. Design/layout assistance

4. Free hosting locations agreeable to the terms above

5. People to buy the work, once completed

If you are willing and able to contribute or provide any assistance mentioned above, please respond with your intention to do so. I will coordinate the materials in time, for now we are pooling resources. Please post on this thread or send me a PM if you can help. I have contacted the HPP and they are looking forward to any assistance that can be provided. Let's help others feel the thrill of sharing their creativity. Thank you for considering.


Ebook Title: Infusion - Empowering People To Use Their Gifts
Theme: Gifting Experiences
Content: For you to decide
Price: To be determined (I suppose is likely to be tax deductible)

Please help.


Sincerely,

Sean Waters

If you're needing help editing and proof reading, I'm more than happy to shoulder some of the responsibilities of point #2. I've worked with Elliot Bresler and Andy Fisher here on some of their releases. I've done a fair amount of this sort of work to be able to help ensure text is clear, correct and readable, but without overruling the author's own writing style and voice. Keep me posted.

I've also got a small method that I use in my work, which I've shared with a couple of people privately and at another forum. I've never thought that it had enough in and of itself to warrant a "release" as such, but perhaps as part of a compendium like this it could find a place in print?

@ Jerome: thank you kindly!

@Conner: both would be beneficial, if you can do so.

@Gary: your assistance, especially during the bustle of your current project would be greatly appreciated

What is so inspiring about this is the fact that people who have posted and some who have communicated via PM are all using their gifts to help other people use theirs. There is an Escher-esque beauty in what you all are doing. Thank you.

I would love to contribute (although I'm no Sean waters). My only questions are:

Are the effects aimed at professional entertainers or children in need?

Baguette,

The intended audience is the mentalism/mental magic community. The aid is for the children and adults served by the project.

Sean

@Sean: Sorry I haven't submitted anything yet. I will try to finish editing my contribution soon. I have a very long plane ride next friday (30 hours) and should normally have all the time in the world to make everything perfect. I hope this isn't too long of a delay, thank you.

Hi Sean,

I would definitely love to contribute towards point 5 (buying the work), and I would also be happy to contribute towards points 2 and 3 as well.
I have some pieces I'd love to contribute, but I'd need to get permission from the people who have inspired my pieces first.
