LANSING, Mich. — We spent some time with Lansing's Batman learning more about the League of Enchantment. As he put it, "we put smiles on the faces of children and so many and are there in some of their darkest times working to make it better for them."
The League of Enchantment is FOX 47's 3 Degree Guarantee Non-Profit and we are very excited to partner with them in the great work that they do on a daily basis. Speaking with Shamus Smith, President of the League of Enchantment, he shared that there are 80 members of the League from throughout Michigan and they participate in over 200 events/visits each year.
On the League of Enchantment's website, founders Brittney and Dominik stated that:
We started The League of Enchantment after visiting a little boy with a terminal disease. Meeting him and seeing how he reacted to seeing his favorite characters in real life made a lasting impression. His smile could light up any room he was in; his parents told us they had not seen him smile the way he did when seeing us in a long time. We grew attached to him and his family, made regular home visits in full costumes, and saw what we could do for that family and for the little boy in the moments we were there. Letting him escape his pain for a bit, and just smile. We want to be able to provide that escape for as many children as possible. To do so, we knew we were going to need help. Thus The League of Enchantment was born with close friends. In the time that we have been operating it has grown farther than our expectations and we are looking forward to meeting more children and families to bring some magic into their lives.
Watch the following video with Lansing Batman to learn more about the League of Enchantment and their annual Gala event that is happening early in November!
