Our commitment to give back
In the summer of 2015 our team was presented the opportunity to work with the Legacies Alive organization. Legacies Alive is a non-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen and support the Gold Star Families (families who have lost a loved one in the Global War on Terror) of the nation’s fallen heroes and brings national awareness to the life and character of all service members who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Throughout the concept, design and development process we were able to work very closely with the Board of Directors and volunteers within the organization. Similar to us at Sparq, Legacies Alive and their passionate people are exactly what make them great. They place a value on building relationships and a have created a family-like atmosphere which we were drawn to.
One of the major draws of the organization is their Legacy Challenges which places their organization on a national platform to help raise awareness for Gold Star Families. In 2015, the Legacy Challenger, Chris Ring swam the entire length of the Mississippi River, becoming the first American to do so. The Sparq Designs team had the ability to travel to Louisiana and witness the finale of the swim and a cap to an incredible six-month journey.
Meeting and working closely with the people of Legacies Alive has inspired us to give back and help out a cause that we believe in. As a young organization we deem it necessary to get behind a cause and see that our impact to help can be much greater! Each and every website that we produce is extremely important to us and we are proud of what we create. In order to spread the word and raise awareness for Gold Star Families, Sparq Designs will donate a portion of every website that we develop to the Legacies Alive organization.
