Dr. Magie is on a lifelong mission to give back to the communities and people who helped her early in life. She has established a Foundation in Mexico called Mateo 25:33 (Matthew 25:33).
This foundation focuses on providing resources such as, education and basic living necessities to orphaned children who have been rescued from human trafficking.
Another major focus is helping organizations who support young adults in overcoming drug addictions. Magie helps organize special missions like distributing donations and feeding hundreds of homeless people to show acts of simple generosity.
Give New Life is a non-profit orphanage (formerly known as Mano De Ayuda), where Magie was born and where she grew up. She served as their US Program Director from January 2012 -October 2017, and during that time, she helped rescue 31 Mexican children from a Drug Cartel and sex trade.
