DONATE & MAKE A DIFFERENCE

ATTENTION: For ALL Studio Owners in the USA. Due to Covid-19 & the recent events that have affected our communities, everyone in the USA is struggling including our hometown Dance/Music & Performing Arts Studios. These schools are where our children learn not only their passion for the arts but their sense of community, socialism, confidence and extended family values; are now in danger of closing their doors. 

Many children consider these studios are their second home where they learn life lessons and create friendships that last forever.

Lets make sure our children have a place to come back home to by donating to https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/light-a-spark-make-a-difference/spark-evolution to keep as many of our dance and performing arts studios open as possible.

ALL DONATIONS WILL GO TO STUDIO OWNERS IN NEED! 

We encourage you to email sparkevolution2020@gmail.com for grant submissions and PLEASE share this post.

So, let’s join together to keep the SPARK going in all our local home-town hero dance studios! Your donation can make a difference!! 

SPARK EVOLUTION is on a mission to save our hometown studios! So many of our studios across the country have been affected by COVID-19 and the Injustice of George Floyd and events thereafter. 

Spark hopes to raise One Million Dollars to support performing arts studios across the United States and help them stay alive! Our “Donate and Make a Difference” campaign is looking to reach one million people to donate to this very worthy cause! 

If you have ever participated in Dance, Music, or Performing you know how important our local town studios are. 

These studios are where our children learn not only their passion for the arts, but their sense of community, socialism, confidence, and extended family values; they are now in danger of closing their doors. 

Many children consider these studios are their second home where they learn life lessons and create friendships that last forever. 

Not only will Spark Evolution grant this much-needed funding to our local studios, but they are also planning to include several student scholarships for dancers! The more donations received, the more grants and scholarships given! Spread the Word! Light A Spark 

Thank you!
