"Thanks for the amazing response that you had for Wild at Heart! Rachel had her operation in November 2010, and thankfully it went brilliantly. She and Aldo are now having their amazing farewell lecture tour, and all you brilliant people who bought this Ebook helped them lots. So, although this Ebook will not help with Rachel's operation anymore, all the money will still go to Aldo and Rachel, and you will be getting an Ebook full of great magic. Thank you." - Kyle
This is a very special ebook put together by an incredible person who is all but 13 years old and driven by his love for magic. He rallied some of the best magicians alive to contribute some of their strongest effects, all for the benefit of Rachel Colombini
. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Aldo
and Rachel Colombini to provide financial assistance to a life threatening condition Rachel is suffering. Surgery runs north of $200,000. The goal is to help the Colombinis raise that much. You can help make a miracle come true by buying a copy or two and spreading the word. Imagine that the efforts of a 13 year old could ultimately save a life. And the only connection between Kyle and the Colombinis is their love for magic.
As you can see from the list of effects and contributors below, this is not just a wonderful opportunity to help the Colombinis but to get some exceptional magic for a bargain. 166 pages for $20 is hard to beat.
