What does MAGI stand for? Making A Godly Impact.
In 2011, MAGI became an acronym when a father asked his 8 year old son, What do you think Magi means?. He boldly proclaimed, “ Making A Godly Impact!” That became our mission for the MAGI Box Project.

Can you come to our church and present on MAGI?
Yes! Call our office or email email@example.com and arrange for a representative from HHI to come make a MAGI presentation to your church or group.
Why $7.00? - It's more than a postage stamp.
We averaged the cost of domestic processing & international shipping of all of our MAGI boxes to different countries. Then applied this amount per box. Below is a breakdown of what the $7 helps pay:
Flat MAGI boxes
Thousands of MAGI boxes are shipped or delivered to hundreds of churches in the U.S. We do not charge for the boxes, only the cost to ship them. We understand that not every church will have the means to cover all MAGI expenses and this option helps those who can't.
We have a MAGI processing center that are secured so that hundreds of volunteers can inspect the MAGI boxes and prepare them for international shipment.
Over 26,000 MAGI boxes are delivered yearly. Ships and trucks transport thousands of MAGI boxes to the countries where they will be distributed. Once there, local churches use many modes of transportation to get them to children in need, including canoes!
MAGI Supplies and Bibles
Your $7 also helps us provide supplies to pack in MAGI boxes that are returned partially full or packed with inappropriate items.
Do we put the money inside the MAGI box?
No. Please do not place your $7 donation inside your boxes. The MAGI Coordinator should collect the donations and provide them to us in one envelope.
If your question was not answered pleased email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We now have an online form for those wanting to request MAGI boxes. We ask that you fill out the form when requesting boxes. Our goal is to keep better records of our MAGI partners.
*** If you are having the boxes shipped to the church building, please give us your home address also for future correspondence.
Thank you so much for joining us in Making a Godly Impact to children around the world.
