LOS ANGELES, May 1, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — SnackMagic, a build-your-own snack box service, launched during the COVID pandemic to bring people working remotely together, has pledged its support to the 2nd annual #FosterChallenge to help raise $500,000 dollars for the nation’s 500,000 foster youth. The new customizable snacking service joins Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind, & Fire, founder of the Music Is Unity Foundation, and Holly Choon Hyang Bachman, Korean adoptee / founder and president of the Mixed Roots Foundation to kick off the POWER OF ONE campaign in May for National Foster Care Month.
