Faces of Marin’s Local Businesses: Samantha Tradelius, Sparkle Foundation Inc.


Samantha Tradelius, Executive Director, Sparkle Foundation Inc. / SparkleBiz

At Sparkle, our mission is to serve single mothers and their children through gifts/goods, enrichment and resources. We have set our sights high and know our efforts are needed now more than ever before.

2019 was a big year for us with the expansion of two new chapters, our reach now expands to Los Angeles and Sacramento metro areas. In March, we enhanced our resource arm introducing, SparkleBiz — where we offer micro-loans focused on single mothers that want to start or grow their businesses. Currently we are loading 1500 backpacks stuffed with forty items for our youth to begin the school year. Each bag will be filled with school supplies, hand sanitizer and face masks to enter the school year in a positive manner. These bags will be handed out by Team Sparkle and local law enforcement agencies in Novato, San Rafael, Solano County, San Francisco, Citrus Heights and Sacramento County Sheriff offices. We believe in women, and we know we can make a difference in their lives and those of their children as well, together.

Every day is a day to make a difference.
