Welcome to the S.P.A.R.K. Society, where a small spark can ignite a blaze.
“S.P.A.R.K.” stands for “Small Purposeful Acts of Random Kindness.” A spark, by itself, is a small and fleeting bit of superficial beauty. But under the right circumstances, a spark can be a catalyst to much greater things.
This is the premise that our yearly project is based on.
Sixty participants each year are chosen to join The S.P.A.R.K. Society. Each participant is given a gift card. They are asked to use it as a catalyst to something great, or to give the card to a person or organization that will.
There is no expectation of repayment, no strings attached, no hopes other than that the recipient uses the gift in a way to achieve something truly meaningful, and to share the results with the giver.
This is where the power of a tiny spark lies. We hope that this small gift - this spark - results in an act of kindness that ignites another. And from that, more and more acts that inspire others to take action and make the world brighter. It doesn’t matter whether the spark is simple or elaborate, as long as the person who receives it shares its effect and helps pass it on. All it takes is a spark.
