It covers the entire city and has nearly reached the goal of having at least one entry from every single neighborhood.

Helpfulness brings people into focus. Community Magic collects and builds tools people can use to help members of their community. The aim is to make useful connections among neighbors and communities. When enough people are busy connecting their neighbors, and they themselves are connected to each other, magical things can happen!
