Keith's sense of giving back what magic has given him is evident in the various charities in which he is involved. He has been a regular weekly volunteer at Children's Mercy South Hospital, performing magic for children. Keith says there is no greater reward for him than taking an ill child's mind off their condition. Inspiring a sense of wonder and making a child smile and laugh, even if only for a moment, is what it's all about.
He has also been active with a different program at other area hospitals in which he helps physical therapy patients to recover. The program is called 'The Healing of Magic,' in which volunteer magicians work with physical therapists and their patients to aid in the process of rehabilitation. Therapists and patients not only get to see magic, but they are also taught the secrets of the tricks. With practice, they are able to do the effects themselves. Some patients may be experiencing pain, discouraging them from participating in the prescribed therapeutic exercises needed to aid in their recovery process. By teaching them magic, the patients have more motivation to do the 'work,' because the therapy becomes fun and exciting. The experience is priceless.
