About Spark Club

Spark Club is an emerging network with the goal of sparking and nurturing good idease for a deeper investment in our community. Spark Club is not your ordinary foundation, institute or not-for-profit. It is a completely voluntary network of brilliant people interested in affecting change where they live.   We recognize that social impact is achieved by working well with others and for a good cause.  Our gatherings, both virtual and actual are designed to identify and create new ways of looking at community challenges and social issues. We hope to inspire a robust network representing all sectors and issues areas to connect and leverage social entrepreneurship throughout the North Texas community.

Working in inclusive and interactive ways, we organize virtually and through a variety of actual gatherings that will take a variety of formats to meet, tease out, define, discover and develop innovative solutions to issues in our communities.

SparkClub is inspired by, among others:

    Here’s hoping you’ll have a meeting sometime a little further west, like the mid-cities area or maybe Ft. Worth.

    Thanks for caring.

  2. Great idea Brian! We hope to host these about once a month or so and if demand is in the mid-cities, would you like to organize? We’d be happy to post something here. Wouldn’t Spark Clubs in cities everywhere be exceedingly fun!

      Sarah, just finding out about Spark Club and looking forward to IdeaWeek. I’m in NE Tarrant County (HEB/Grapevine/Colleyville/Southlake). Do you still envision Spark Clubs in multiple cities? I’m interested to hear your vision and to learn how I can possibly contribute! Look forward to learning more.

    Just heard about this from Vanessa and Kevin last night, and it sounds amazing. I so wish I would have heard about it in time for your next event. Do you send notifications, or is it only via the message board or twitter?

    When is the next event?

    • Christian Caldwell says:

      Thanks for asking. We have taken a long break and it is time to get back together again. We are in planning right now for the next series of events and will get back to you soon.

    I once saw an event that takes volunteers. I saw it on the Daily Kos or Huffington Post, the event takes place in downtown Ft. Worth on Thursday nights. I’ve been wanting to get a few people to meet me there to help. I have been upset that a church I attend won’t help, but I figured some small groups of people who want to do good, would help. It’d be a great spark club event, whether or not any of us are Christians. It’s just good to do good.

    By the way, this event is not a slop out the food, go find a seat event. Volunteers get to eat with the homeless if they want or they can serve.

    By the way Christian, saw your list of books above, I loved Outliers. Great book.

  9. You are really wonderful people! Our life changing organization seeks the people like you to support its life changing projects and programs in Ethiopia, East Africa.

    You guys ought to have Lekha Singh speak…I’d pay for the chance to hear her.

    Hello and Happy New Year!

    I am wondering if there will be another collaboration like 2011 Big Bang? I volunteer with an organization that would love to share what they are doing to improve our community.
