The Sparkle Foundation is a collection of friends and colleagues with one goal in mind: to help others. A group of women would collect, wrap and deliver gifts and necessities at the holidays before they became a nonprofit in early 2016. Their motto is “where we have ability, we have responsibility.” This foundation is different than others, 100% of donations go directly to women and children who are hand selected by Sparkle, in ways that will best meet their specific needs.
Tracy Teale, Audit Partner and Not-For-Profit Practice Group leader is on the board and actively involved with Sparkle Foundation. In December, she participated in their 2016 Holiday Gift Drive. This has been an annual tradition for the past ten years. After putting together a list of gifts and goods per family, they gathered on December 10th to wrap the gifts collected, grouped them by family and delivered them just in time for Christmas. Tracy has been donating gifts and participating in this tradition for five years. “It is so inspiring to see all of these women; children and some very supportive husbands come together and make the holidays special for so many deserving families. It is a blessing to have the opportunity to give back to families in need through this amazing organization.” This year, Sparkle helped 28 families and almost 100 individuals. “The stories of joy and happiness that come during the deliveries make me “Sparkle” all year long.”
