Find your inner power by helping others

There are so many children living in this world that do not have the same opportunities as others. Even the smallest of donations make the greatest impact in a childs life.

Think Globally, but act Locally


Something Bigger than Yourself is dedicated to help as many children's homes possible by providing their in-house  children with adequate resources for a better quality of life. Currently, we have worked with 9 children homes and 7 retirement communities throughout Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, and Colorado.
