“It is incredible what a small group of individuals with the same motivation, inspiration and focus can accomplish. I am thrilled to see my vision, now our shared vision, becoming a reality day by day. Knowing that we are helping improve these youngsters’ chances in life is so rewarding!”

Yes, MagicWaste Youth Foundation is very much like other charitable organizations. It is focused on addressing a specific situation within the community. It raises funds via events, activities, donations and sponsorships to support programs. It follows specific state and federal regulations regarding its structure and operations. However, MWYF is rather unique in that it is an ALL VOLUNTEER organization! Each and every one of its members has other professional responsibilities and lend their time, talent, expertise, and connections to this cause.
MWYF founder and the team’s “fearless leader” Rudy Bustamante explains it best: “In mid-2016, I recruited a group of outstanding colleagues and friends —all of them top-notch South Florida professionals and entrepreneurs— to help me give these kids a fighting chance at developing their full potential. We rolled up our sleeves from day one and have been busy ever since.”
Love is the driving force that inspires the MWYF team to find —or create— ways in which to assist South Florida foster youths, specifically those who have “aged-out” of the foster care system and are left
with no guidance or support.
