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 heal hearts all over the world.  Join us in our mission to turn tragedy into triumph for children everywhere.

What Can One Heart Do?

Can it stop countless families around the globe from being forced apart? Can it help orphaned children transition from at-risk to thriving? Can it make families whole again? We believe one heart can be a hero that can enhance the lives of underprivileged children. Will it be yours?

Charlie's Watering Hole

Announcing our newest partnership with A Glimmer of Hope. Our first project will be a well that we have fondly titled ‘Charlie’s Watering Hole’.

How Can You Help Break the Cycle?

When families are forced apart, hearts break – too many to count.  This is the reality around the globe. Children are orphaned, vulnerable and at risk, separated from the family that loved them from the start – unless – we step up to break the cycle.

Our Mission:

To enhance the lives of children and families in areas of need through sustainable living, financial and health education to ultimately ensure they are prepared for their lives ahead.

The Epidural

My husband, Michael, often said that if the human race depended on men to give birth, we would have been extinct by now. I have to agree with him on that point.  Pregnancy and Birth are the most beautiful experiences (at least that is what everyone says on Facebook)....
