Midwest Financial Group is proud to sponsor the S.P.A.R.K. Society

S.P.A.R.K stands for a Small Purposeful Act of Random Kindness.

For the second year in a row, sixty members of the S.P.A.R.K. Society were given $100 with no rules and no strings attached. Those members were asked to use the $100 to do something good for someone else and report back to share what happened, all in the hope that the person they helped would continue that pattern. The idea is that one good deed, one spark – no matter how big or small – can be the catalyst to much greater things. Scroll down to learn more about why we’re so passionate about the S.P.A.R.K Society.

“Soon after receiving the $100 to pay forward, I saw a 55-year-old-terminal patient at a local nursing home in Madison (Belmont). The patient felt cold and after trying to problem solve (to warm a blanket in a dryer, heating pad, or electric blanket) nothing could be done because of restrictions and regulations. More and more blankets felt heavy. I approached the nursing home administrator to negotiate the possible purchase of a blanket warmer. They checked out the purchase options and with the generous contribution from S.P.A.R.K. the process started warmth & comfort for many in need.”

At Midwest Financial Group, we believe in a values-based approach to business. We ask what’s most important to each and every client, and that’s what becomes most important to us when helping them plan for their future. The S.P.A.R.K. Society was created to take that sentiment and apply it to a greater, even more impactful vision. The reason there are no strings attached to our $100 gift cards is because we want members to use them for something that is important to them. Whether that’s donating to a charity, helping out a neighbor who has had a rough year, or simply buying groceries for someone who might not be able to otherwise, the individual values of each member of the S.P.A.R.K. Society are varied.

Last year, we saw members sparking positive change in creative and innovative ways because they were able to put their gift toward something that truly mattered to them. After last year’s success, we believe this year’s sparks can have an even broader impact and we’re thrilled to see what happens.
