Sparo's Purchase with a Purpose Helps ICE Foundation's Granting Courage Scholarship

with Donations
(1888 PressRelease) Sparo's Purchase with a Purpose offers foundations a unique opportunity to receive
charitable donations, and the ICE Foundation was recently added as one of the donor options.
Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV - "What if every purchase made online resulted in a charitable donation?" That
question spawned a new way to help charities by creating the program, Purchase with a Purpose. Sparo is
the start-up philanthropic venture established by Rob Sobhani, a serial entrepreneur, former President of
Caspian Energy and an American author and regular contributor on CNN and Fox on International Policy
Matters. The application is embedded in store checkouts that allow online shoppers to donate a portion of
their purchase to the charity of their choice. The ICE Foundation was recently added to the list of charities
consumers can choose from.
"Sparo's Purchase with a Purpose program offers foundations an exciting opportunity to reach a vast
audience of charitable individuals," said James Barchiesi, ICE Foundation executive director. "What's best
about Sparo is that it's an innovative mechanism for giving that is simple and cost-efficient for the general
public. The ability to leverage access to some of Sparo's partners, including the Washington Times, presents
us with the opportunity to raise awareness for a diversity of programs including our Granting Courage
Initiative."
Sparo's vision is to shape the world into a place where commerce and charity go hand-in-hand. It's about
having capitalism with a conscience and to give this power to the consumer. Sparo helps merchants and
people connect, and helps charities in the process.
The ICE Foundation is a not-for-profit organization created to honor and support the contributions of the
more than 20,000 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency employees stationed in more than
400 offices in the U.S. and 46 foreign countries. ICE Foundation's Granting Courage initiative focuses on
supporting ICE's mission to help our most vulnerable; children affected by exploitation and human
trafficking. The program seeks to raise awareness, provide mission support to the agency, and financial
support to survivors.
