Kessler Kids MAJiK Foundation was founded in 2011 by siblings Aly Grace Kessler, 10th grade, Kate Elise, 8th grade, along with their brother Marcus, to help at risk children by spreading a little "magic" to those less fortunate. MAJiK is an acronym of the Kessler siblings' first names, including their deceased brother Jakob Joseph.
Every year, the siblings host a holiday party and invite their friends and neighbors to bring a toy for at risk children as well as a donation for one of the organizations they have chosen to support. After their first fundraiser, their parents decided to match the funds that were raised to increase the foundation's impact. After the party, the Kessler's deliver toys to and spend time with the children and families they have supported. For 2018, the siblings have chosen to support Atlanta Mission: My sisters House, Charity: Water, and ABC2 (Accelerated Brain Cancer Cure). The siblings chose ABC2 in memory of their beloved mother, Stacey, who passed away in May from brain cancer.
Over the last eight years, the foundation has raised more than $200,000 for local charities with a goal of raising $50,000 this holiday season.
