Helice “Grandma Sparky” Bridges

Founder BLUE RIBBONS WORLDWIDE

The “Who I Am Makes A Difference”® Blue Ribbon Ceremony was born out of my desire to create a world where all people would feel connected, valued, and loved.

In 1979, I was a 37-year-old wife, mother, and successful businesswoman going through a divorce, feeling lost, alone, and desperate for love. I had thoughts of committing suicide on a daily basis. So how did I manage to find a way to heal the pain of others and bring love to 50 million people throughout the world? I began to teach kids, teachers, parents, neighbors, business people, everyone I came in contact with how to express their appreciation, respect, and love, value uniqueness, and empower dreams.

My deepest desire is that you will know who you are, why you were born, and the difference you make. You will not be alone. Instead, you will be part of a global team helping to Unite Humanity Through the Power of Love for this generation and all generations to come!
