project little spark (pls) is inspired by a belief that a simple act of kindness lights a desire to continue to help others…
pls directly promotes kindness, generosity, and compassion in all children, including those with special needs. Our mission is two-fold: (1) to “spark” a spirit of giving that will continue throughout an individual’s personal development, and (2) to “spark” social justice by mitigating the impact of poverty in the education of vulnerable populations.
pls provides opportunities for children in the U.S., including those
who are vulnerable and have specialneeds, to give educational and therapeutic materials as well as support to their global peers. Founded by Jeanine Jesberg, a former teacher of the deaf/hard of hearing and ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist, pls provides needed materials as well as letters of encouragement to children in regions across the globe.
