Start A Snowball, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to empowering kids to engage in philanthropy. We realize that in order to create and foster a culture of service, we have to start with children. We want kids to start their own projects – small philanthropic endeavors that, with our help, can snowball and make a large and lasting impact. We aim to do this by providing funding for individuals and groups (classrooms, youth groups, etc.) to use as “seed money” to get their projects rolling. We also plan to do this by providing a way for kids to tell their stories of service to provide inspiration for others. We hope that funding and showcasing these acts of kindness by our children, we can begin to create a culture that is more aware of and willing to help those in need, and inspires others to do the same.
The Mission of Start A Snowball, Inc. is the pursuit of the following principles:
- Service: It is the responsibility of everyone, and if each one of us can help the world around us, the world would be a much better place.
- Possibility: It is possible for one person to make an enormous difference through a seemingly small effort that can have long lasting and broad reaching impacts.
- Support: Through offering resources and community, we can empower young people to make a huge difference in their communities.
- Growth: As we teach children about serving others we can create a movement that can influence a generation to become a generation of givers.
