Our goal: to bring books and book-based learning opportunities into the homes of economically struggling families in the Amarillo community during the holiday season.
This is the second annual year of the Story Spark Project! Read about our inaugural year’s success HERE
. We are looking to broaden our impact this year through additional partnerships that will get students in our community involved in service learning.
Our mission: In creating Story Spark , our mission was to enrich the Amarillo, TX community by bringing together families, children, and caregivers through book-based enrichment/classes that SPARK deeper bonds, curiosity, and a love of learning.
Our core belief: We believe that every child should grow up with QUALITY books and QUALITY play materials: loved items that stand the test of time and cultivate a life-long love of books, reading, and learning.
A book is a wondrous thing, but the way we pair books with everyday learning and play experiences is truly magical and life changing. When we interact meaningfully and dive further into books, they can spark not only joy and self-awareness, but also social skills, language and communication skills, problem solving, mathematical and scientific thinking, curiosity, empathy, and a love for art, music and so much more.
My plea: Please join me in spreading the Story Spark experience to families in need this Christmas, by donating any amount you can and spreading the word. If you are interested in helping or supporting in some other way, please leave me a message.
Donations will allow me to curate gift sets that include a quality book and related materials for a related extension activity such as a quality toy, art supplies, science/math manipulatives, etc. Each gift set will cost about $20.
Our deadline: In order to allow time to select gifts that match individual families and deliver them by Christmas, we will be accepting donations until December 10th!
Please help spread the word!
Thank you so much for supporting Story Spark and our community! Let's spread peace, love, and books together!
