I was Raised by a single Mom and saw first hand how hard it is! Now as an adult, I have the honor and privilege to serve on the Board of Directors for Sparkle Foundation Inc. For the past three years I have seen the amazing work and difference the Sparkle Foundation has made throughout our community not only with helping struggling Single Moms and Kids but with the effect that the Sparkle Foundation’s mission of helping others has had on the hundreds of volunteers as well. It is both humbling and heartwarming to be a part of the magic and spread the Sparkle!

Sparkle is truly amazing. Sam has created an organization - a movement really - with electric energy and phenomenal, unwavering volunteer support. The goal is simple - help others. And Sam never veers from that. Sparkle has supported so many deserving families. And as a volunteer, I can honestly say that I personally have gotten so much out of contributing in a small way to this terrific group and its mission.

Sparkle truly helps to improve the lives of women and children. Whether at Christmas or holiday time, back to school preparations, or anytime throughout the year, Samantha Tradelius and her team at the Sparkle Foundation are lending support to those in need. They work tirelessly on acquisitions from the community for school supplies, reach out to the business and corporate sectors for support on gift giving during the holiday season, and in general are planning their next step in caring for others everyday.

God Bless Sparkle, and keep up the great work. The world needs more organizations like Sparkle.

Great non-profit! Not only have we donated financially, but we’ve also purchased gifts for those in need over the holidays, as well as volunteered as a family for great events giving back to those in our community who need help. Love the family focus, youth enrichment, feeling of love and respect for to those who are given assistance, and positive role models that the Board are for our community and youth. Go Team Sparkle!

I founded this nonprofit 4 years ago with one goal- to help others. That is exactly what we do. 100% of every dollar generated goes right back out to help a single mother in need. We are making a difference in this world one sparkle at a time!

I absolutely love Sparkle!
Last year, they made Christmas possible for my friend that is a single mom of two wonderful girls. Not only did they provide gifts and necessities, but Sparkle also wrapped and delivered these gifts! It was incredible!
This year, we had a brand new mattress we donated to Sparkle and the women were a delight to work with.
Not many charities give 100% of donations, but Sparkle does and I know these people do it for all the right reasons.
Thank you for everything you do, Sparkle!
