The Source of Our Spark
Charlie Holt’s life ended abruptly after five short years. But his life was anything but small. It was the spark of a movement – a movement to love and support families in need all around us.
What Can One Heart Do?
Can it stop countless families from being forced apart? Can it make families whole again? We believe one heart can be a hero for many. Will it be yours?
What can one heart do?
Can it help keep families together?
We envision a world where no family is torn apart by tragedy and where all families, regardless of their circumstances, have access to the support they need to stay healthy and whole.
Our mission is to fund holistic programs that promote the mental well-being of vulnerable families.

Happy Birthday, Charlie!
I wonder what you would look like? Would your giggle be the same? The way you wear your hair, would it be shagging like the other boys or parted to the side like I always brushed it? Would you still love superheroes and play soccer just as you did when you were five? Or would […]Read More
