For children, for youth, for change

Spark ActionThere’s an obvious reason we invest in children—they will someday be our world’s leaders, workers, and parents. By fostering a generation of healthy, happy, playful kids, we’re laying the groundwork for a brighter future.

Luckily, we’re not alone in our work. As we focus on saving play, other organizations and communities are investing in education, after-school programs, child welfare, foster care, and youth service. In fact, there’s so much good work being done every day, it can be tough to keep track of it all.

That’s why we’re proud to be among the organizations behind a new one-stop site for stories, news, and interactive advocacy tools, called SparkAction: for children, for youth, for change. SparkAction.org gives organizations, leaders and young people themselves a place to share their knowledge and ideas, and together raise a stronger voice for change.

From struggling schools to junk food, the threats facing our children today are varied and vast—but they are no match for the efforts of committed advocates, volunteers, and professionals when we all work together. Visit SparkAction.org to lend your voice to this growing movement.
