It’s the ultimate gift of magic for the Christmas season from Luxor headliner and Spike TV “Believe” star Criss Angel. To celebrate his birthday, my spies tell me that Criss donated $100,000 to local charities, visited a children’s hospital on Tuesday to perform tricks for patients and today throws a Make-a-Wish Foundation Christmas party.
Within his inner circle, Criss also has vowed to raise $1 million in 2014 to donate to kids who are battling cancer. I haven’t reached him yet for the full details of his plan, and since he does a lot of unpublicized charitable deeds, it might not be something he’ll talk about, but I’ll try to pry news of the campaign from him.
