Do you find yourself wondering about the future and wish you could get a sign from the universe?
Well, look no further because the Magic 8(26) Ball Challenge is here to help!
Find insight into what lies ahead with the mystical power of books—all while supporting young writers!
Here’s how the #Magic826Ball Challenge works:
Still wondering what it looks like in practice? Luckily, 826 Boston’s AmeriCorps Volunteer Engagement Specialist Mark Gartsbeyn is ready to share his fortune with everyone!
Mark used a pocket paperback of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
He chose chapter 8, line 26 which reads: “The simple truth is that interstellar distances will not fit into the human imagination.”
Mark’s interpretation: “Serving at 826 Boston this following year is as good a reminder as any to stay humble and lift up the people around me. After all, the universe is a whole lot bigger than I am.”
We’re aiming to raise $5,000 by October 1 to help 826 Boston continue providing free writing and tutoring for students across the city. Thank you for your support!
