What a year it’s been! No doubt, 2015 had its ups and downs, from the ground-breaking Paris Agreement to address climate change, to continuing gun violence; from marriage equality to global refugee crises; from “The Dress” to the latest installment of the Star Wars saga. Here at Spark, we had some amazing moments – providing backbone support to two collective impact initiatives whose work is taking off, watching the successful implementation of Farm to School in several rural communities, growing our circle of partners to include several national initiatives, and continuing to create tools for social innovators. We’ve also seen some changes in our team, saying hello to a number of new team members and good bye to some, as well as changes to our physical space, and we’ve summed it up for you in an infographic!
So, as we wrap up 2015, we want to take a moment not only to celebrate what we’ve accomplished in this whirlwind of a year, but to raise a glass to you, our partners, without whom none of this would be possible. Taking stock of the year, it is abundantly clear that the work you do is why we are here and how we are changing the world for the better.
Cheers to you, and all you do, and thank you. We’ll see you in 2016!
