His latest involvement with these causes is the Spark Tank that is focused on helping small non-profit organizations. This new venture focuses on organizations based in Fort Worth /Dallas area, and they stand to benefit with funds worth $5,000.
The latest winner of the Spark Tank venture is the Mommies in Need. This news was announced by Marc Sparks who said that he was thrilled in being involved in the proceedings. The Mommies in Need is a non-profit organization that focuses on helping needy families with healthcare emergencies. They also offer nanny support services to poor families that cannot afford these services. At the same time, the Mommies in Need acknowledged the grant and said that they were honored to be part of this project. To be part of this project, an organization must have been in operation for more than two years. During a normal case, an organization wishing to be sponsored is given 10 minutes to make their case to a panel that is followed by 10 minutes to answer queries from involved parties.
Mark Spark says that he developed this program to ensure there is a social success within his society. The third round of this challenge is currently accepting applications for the deadline set for 1st October. The winners of round one, round two and round three will face off in December. However, the project does not accept nominations from some organizations such as political action committees, United Way charities as well as national charities. Mark says that many startups fail because they can’t tell their story and thus are unable to seek for donations. It’s his aim to improve the presentation skills of people participating in this project.
