Jeanine Jesberg, Project Little Spark

Jeanine Jesberg is a clinical speech-language pathologist who started Project Little Spark (PLS) to give children with special needs opportunities to help their peers.

Jeanine believes that children with special needs are often only identified as potential recipients of generosity and are not afforded many opportunities to give or be supportive for others in need. In her experience, allowing children with special needs to give to others yields positive results.

Project Little Spark provides opportunities for children in the U.S. to give educational and therapeutic materials to their global peers in the Caribbean. Donated items and letters of encouragement are provided to recipients.
