Hurricanes. Fires. Floods. Job loss. Domestic abuse. Home loss.
Various unexpected tragedies can throw a child into a situation of dire need, as can ongoing difficulties within the home. The one thing all of these situations have in common? Not one of them is the child's fault---yet they all affect the child in terrible ways. Sparrow's Wings works to seek and find solutions for these children.
I founded “Sparrow’s Wings,” and based the name on Scripture:
Matthew 10:29 – Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.
Psalm 91:4 - God will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge.
Shortly after founding Sparrow’s Wings I said to my family, “I need to have a fundraiser. Should I have a car wash or a bake sale?” My daughter immediately replied, “Mom, you love Pearls. Figure out a way to do something with Pearls.” And so, Global Island Treasures was born.
By continually donating a portion of profits from Global Island Treasures and other jewelry fundraisers, Sparrow’s Wings has helped hungry children in America as well as in several Third World countries. And we have helped to provide food, clothing, and shelter---and also beds and purified water.
Life has dealt a difficult hand to so many innocent children. Anything you can do to help us help them is greatly appreciated. For that, we thank you. And so do the children.
It all began with a Sparrow...
