The 2016 Holiday Gift Drive

The mission of the Sparkle Foundation is to sponsor and support women and children in need with Gifts and Goods, Enrichment, and Resources. Samantha Tradelius and her friends, family, colleagues, and community have been acting upon this mission with a Holiday Gift Drive for the last ten years and now the Sparkle Foundation can continue with that wonderful tradition as a 501(c)(3) where all donations are 100% tax deductible. 

“Where we have ability, we have a responsibility.”

As a community, we are incredibly fortunate and we ALL have the ability to make a difference, no matter how big or small. When you donate gifts or goods, services or even just money to the Sparkle Foundation, you know that 100% of what you give goes directly to women and children.

This year we’ve come across some people whose stories would break your heart. These women and children are facing circumstances that we hope no one else ever has to face. Major health issues, job insecurity, abuse - these women and children have seen the worst of it. And the Sparkle Foundation is going to do something AMAZING for them. By providing them with a holiday they will never forget, we are going to bring that Sparkle back. 

Let’s make some Christmas miracles come true!

Here is how it works: We’ve put together a list of gifts and goods for each family. Through the sign-up form (link below), we collect items requested as well as general necessities (toiletries, etc), gift cards (grocery, Target, Walmart, etc.), and things as simple as movie gift certificates. You name it, we will take it! Then, on December 10th (keep an eye out for the invitation), we will gather together and wrap the presents that will then be grouped by family and delivered just in time for Christmas.

The collections begin now and need to be delivered to us by December 8th. Again, we will be wrapping December 10th... Save the Date!

All of your tax deductible donations (please save your receipts!) can be brought to Samantha’s home in Novato (please message us for the address) or sent to:

The Sparkle Foundation, Inc.
448 Ignacio Blvd., #128
Novato, CA 94949

Please pass this on if you know anyone that may be interested in joining us!
Together we CAN make a difference!

Thank you, The Sparkle Foundation Board of Directors
