On Saturday, a coven of witches paddled down the Willamette River, all for a good cause.
Hundreds of witches, and a few wizards, spent a lovely afternoon paddling down the river like a bunch of muggles. Portland-based Ginny Kauffman organized the event, appropriately called Standup Paddleboard Witch Paddlegroup, in 2016 after seeing a similar event with witches in California. The participants in this year's paddle event donated clothing and coats to the charities Our House of Portland and Sunshine Division, both supporting the Portland area.

What? You've never seen a witch do a headstand on a paddleboard before?
Twitter couldn't get enough of the charitable witches.

Witches and Wonder Woman? Now there is a combo we can get behind!
@bettywriter That’s awesome. My friends and I swam the 13 bridges in wonder woman suits once. Maybe we could combine events...💥— Kristi #BeAVoter 🇺🇸⚖️🌊 (@Kristi #BeAVoter 🇺🇸⚖️🌊)1540896164.0
