Magician to encase self in glass box for local hunger awareness


Call him the urban, exhibitionist Mahatma Gandhi?

Magician and activist Scott Hammell will spend five days in a glass box outside of Union Station later this month to raise awareness for local hunger issues. As part of the Free The Children's Halloween For Hunger campaign, Hammell will be encased in glass from Wednesday October 27 to Sunday October 31 and asking Torontonians to donate non-perishables to cover his box and make him "disappear." (Though isn't that the magician's job?)

Hammell will be stationed just outside Union Station starting next Wenesday at 6:00 a.m. For more information on the Halloween for Hunger campaign, check out the Free the Children website.
