Magic Lamp Foundation Budapest & Magic Bugs
It has been quite awhile since we have written about the Magic Lamp (Csodalámpa) Foundation but be sure that it is still hard at work, brightening the lives of seriously ill children in Hungary. The foundation fulfills the wishes of 3-18 year old children who are suffering from a life threatening illnesses. Since the establishment of the foundation in the fall of 2003, they have fulfilled more than 2600 wishes.

Profiles and photos of each wish realization can be found on their website

Our company helps the management and the volunteers of the foundation by inviting them to our Guy Fawkes event, publishing articles about their activities and helping in their 1% tax donation campaign.While it is almost impossible to imagine how difficult it must be for the families of these ill children, a wish fulfilment and the fact that someone, who does not even know the family and the child, cares for them means so much. It also gives the hope and strenght that is necessary for the child’s recovery.

This year, despite the shrinking possibilities of sponsorship, Magic Lamp has already fulfilled more than 100 wishes – each one a dream come true!

The management and volunteers of Magic Lamp /Csodalámpa constantly work on broadening their sponsorship possibilities. One of their newest is the „running” project.

Charity runners – individuals or company teams – can participate in running competitions by wearing Csodalámpa T-Shirts. They call themselves THE MAGIC BUGS.

This year over 160 Magic Bugs have already been „flying” in races for the wishes of these ill children.

With the kind sponsorship of their family members, collegues and friends, they have raised near HUF 4 million in the Viviciatta and K&H maratons.

From this sponsorship, 15-20 ill children can have their wishes fulfilled!

More information about the Magic Bugs can be found on their website:

The next event is SPAR Maraton. They welcome any new participants, let’s join them.
