Author & Creator: David Justin

David Justin is a well known entrepreneur in the New England area. Born and raised in New Durham, New Hampshire, David is known for his ambition and ability to think outside of the box. 

After conquering the marketing industry in the New England region, the New Hampshire native took on a much larger demographic in San Diego, California with hopes to bring The Magic Fire Place to life. 

In 2014 David came up with the idea for The Magic Fireplace when he was sitting at a family restaurant and over heard a little girl ask her father, “Daddy, how is Santa going to get into our new house if we don’t have a fireplace?" David then spent the next 2 years writing, sketching and planning the entire project. 

David, an active donor to local charities, saw a bigger picture with this project. He created a vision, a product and a story to help preserve the innocence of many children by enhancing the traditional belief of Santa Clause. Included in his vision is the lifelong charitable donation that this project will bestow amongst many organizations around the world.    

David will be donating 10% of profits from every sale to participating children's hospitals and elementary schools to help raise money for medical needs and scholastic funds. David has always had his hands in charity work and has been able to create and execute events that helped raise money for local charities, but this project is much bigger than that. His vision for The Magic Fireplace is to not only assist children by enhancing the traditional belief of Santa Clause, but to make a big impact on fundraising at a national level.    

With the loss of his father David, as well as his Uncle Rick to cancer, David is eager to make a big impact in raising money for cancer research with this project. Thus, earning the slogan “The Gift That Keeps on Giving.”
