Founding Guardian Angel
Monica Saunders-Weinberg is our Founding Guardian Angel and dedicated mentor for Feel the Magic®.
With Philanthropy at the core of her values, Monica was inspired with Feel the Magic’s vision and its authenticity in the very early days.
In 2015, Monica met co-founder James Thomas in an interview via the Growth Project, an organisation supporting charity leaders to maximise their impact on the world. Monica was immediately drawn to the Feel the Magic® organisation. As a bereaved child herself, Monica knew all too well the importance of early intervention of childhood grief.
Monica’s support from the very beginning has meant that she and the Saunders family have funded numerous Camp Magic® programs, sent a family on a Magic Journey Experience, supported numerous fundraising events and, of late has taken part as a Camp Magic® mentor.
Monica introduced Feel the Magic® to her sister Betty who is now a proud ambassador of the organisation. Monica’s passion and energy for Feel the Magic® is inspiring and she takes great pride in sharing the organisation’s impact in the Australian grief community amongst her network.
As Monica continues the Saunders family legacy of supporting those who need it, thousands of grieving children will learn the value of Empathy, Empowerment, Growth, Connection and how they can achieve their ultimate potential despite their circumstances.
It’s an honour to have Monica Saunders-Weinberg as our Founding Guardian Angel. We are incredibly grateful for Monica’s support and commitment to Feel the Magic®.
