Danilo Terrana has involved Silvia, a 13-year-old girl from Palermo, who has moved to the city of Pasadena in California for two years, also fascinated by the fantastic world of Now It’s Magic and her Team and with the great desire to help migrant children.
Everything is born by chance, when Danilo invited by the president of the Palermo Lions Club William II, to a convention and met the father of little Silvia to whom he proposed to insert his comic in a school project to which thelittle Silvia was working, so as to let the boys of Los Angeles know our beautiful Palermo.
Silvia’s project “Write your immigrant story, through which Silvia invites other boys and girls, immigrants like her in America, to write their stories, joins the comic strip of Danilo set in Palermo, a land that has always welcomed people different and people looking for a better future.
The combination of the comic strip and Silvia’s project allowed her to win the first prize in a competition organized by her school, the Flintridge Preparatory School, a cash prize that was donated by Silvia to “Save The Children Italy”.
The free copies have already been distributed within the Californian institute, others will be distributed in the city libraries of Pasadena.
The children of the Californian school donated through Silvia, ambassador of Now It’s Magic in Pasadena, a free contribution to the Save The Children non-profit organization in favor of immigrant children.
