Kids at Seattle Children’s Autism Center design limited edition Magic the Gathering playing cards

Chief Executive Officer Mendy Minjarez said the project was “fantastic” for patients and families, and empowered often disadvantaged children.

SEATTLE – Some of Seattle’s famous brands are combining their strengths to support Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Specifically, the newly renovated Seattle Children’s Autism Center will open in December. CEO Mendy Minjarez said funding more services for children and families is not magic, but in part is due to Magic the Gathering.

“I don’t know how popular the Magic card is, and the value of the limited editions is impressive,” Minjarez said.

The role-playing game was released by Renton-based Wizards of the Coast in 1993 and has grown from 300 cards to over 20,000 cards.

A limited edition Magic card collection has been released as part of a community partnership between Wizards of the Coast and Extra Life, an annual fundraising event featuring people from the gaming world. fundraising together.

Wizards of the Coast has worked directly with Seattle Children’s Hospital for several years and gave the autism center a gift of more than $770,000 last year.

Wizards of the Coast teamed up with a talented group of kids from the Seattle Children’s Autism Center to make an original shoot of iconic magical creatures. Minjarez said young artists are still shining.

She said the experience of the family and the patient was “wonderful” and that the project had empowered often disadvantaged children.

Children’s art has been brought to life by the team at Wizards of the Coast. The cards have Lathiss, Dragon Queen, Birds of Paradise, Silver Legion and a secret card.

Fifty percent of proceeds from the limited editions will go directly to the Seattle Children’s Autism Center. Last year’s check was for $770,000 and helped support program development, expansion, family support, training, and more.

Minjarez says Wizards help make the most of their beautiful new space.

“Wizards help pay for professionals and training, and when we open this new facility in December, that money will make an immediate impact,” Minjarez said.

Employees will use the funds to pay for services not traditionally covered.

“It gives us the ability to go above and beyond traditional services,” says Minjarez.

All stakeholders hope this year will bring even more miracles to the cause. These bundles range from $39.99 to $49.99, and the limited edition is out as more than 17,500 units of the “secret lair” card were pre-ordered ahead of time. The new Seattle Children’s Autism Center will open December 12.
