The Be the Magic Foundation, an initiative started by local tech company Bit-Wizards, brought holiday cheer to 27 children living at the Fresh Start For Children & Families this week.

  • For the fourth straight year, the foundation granted wishes for the children residing at Fresh Start, which provides housing, education and job training to homeless families. 

Each child was encouraged to write their ‘wish list’ that was ultimately fulfilled by Bit-Wizards staff members.  

  • In total, Be the Magic provided 245 gifts for 15 families staying at the shelter. The gifts were purchased and wrapped by Bit-Wizards employees.

“I look at this picture and smile through tears—all the shopping, the wrapping, the love, caring, and kindness that went into it, the joy that is going to come to these 15 families and all these kiddos,” said Donna Tashik, Fresh Start’s executive director, in a statement. “These kids have all been through so much, but this Christmas they are safe, warm, and as spoiled as any other child! THIS here, this is the core of who Bit Wizardstruly is—a group of big-hearted, caring, and kind people who are incredibly smart with IT but are truly GREAT at the art of being human beings. I love you all!”
