One Sparrow

Mission

One Sparrow is a 501(c)3 organization that puts on fun, family friendly events in our local community while raising money for local and global causes. One Sparrow's core focus is to identify causes and communities that are in great need of help and love. We provide funds and resources to drastically impact lives in the areas of shelter, education, and employment.

Profile

In April 2013, One Sparrow hosted the first annual One Sparrow 5k /1mile Fun Run in Ashburn, VA. There were over 400 registered runners, 150 volunteers from various organizations in the community; to include the Loudoun County High School Junior ROTC unit and the Briar Woods High School National Honor Society. The event was attended by almost 700 people over the course of the morning and raised $9,000 profit.

 

Since that first event we have hosted annual races, several kids consignment sales, backpack drive for Ashburn Elementary and donated clothing, books, and supplies to local non-profit organizations like Kids Konnection and Women of Worth. Through these types of events, One Sparrow has begun to brand itself in the community as a great organization that puts on friendly and inviting events.

 

In addition to our local activities, One Sparrow is supporting 3 current initiatives around the world. In 2015, One Sparrow partnered with H.O.M.E. International to complete their new campus, which will provide housing and education for 100 orphans in Guatemala. In India, we have purchased land for building a new and larger facility for the Royal Hearts of Hope Orphanage, which will house and educate 50 children. Once additional funds are raised this year, the new facility will be completed and furnished by December 2016. In Haiti, we are working towards building an orphan children's village and opening a distance learning center for youth and adults in Limbe, Haiti starting in late 2016. We envision both the children's village and distance learning center serving local children and young adults; giving them the tools to realize their full potential.

 

At One Sparrow, we believe that by providing homes and not just shelter; education and not just books; and opportunities for careers and employments and not just temporary aid, we can make a sustainable and lasting impact in some of the most impoverished communities around the world. This is our core focus with both our local and global initiatives.

 

One Sparrow is a non-profit organization incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia and has been granted 501(c)(3) tax exempt status with the IRS. All donations made to One Sparrow are Tax exempt. We are 100% volunteer run and promote youth and young adult volunteerism in all of our activities.
