Brightening lives in the Triangle

Little WORLD Charity's Basic Beliefs

What is the most important gift one can give?

Who needs it?
Children, the elderly, those dealing with illness, and everyone in our community

Where can we touch the most hearts?
At our hospitals, libraries, retirement homes, and other public venues

Those beliefs drive the Little WORLD, a 501c3 charity (donations are tax deductible) with the sole mission of brightening lives in our North Carolina Triangle. The "worlds" are custom made, whimsical, mechanical displays, put at no charge at Ronald McDonald Houses, Duke Children's Hospital, the Durham Public Libraries, and other spots in the Triangle. The charity receives no compensation from these great institutions. We are spiritual but unaffiliated with any religion or any other organization or cause.

There is so much more to do; we need fresh displays at our current locations, and for each current venue there are ten more children's, cancer, or veterans hospitals, centers for the elderly, libraries and schools. So we are asking for your help. We have no paid staff and every tax deductibe dollar or used toy donation goes to helping others.

Here's a proposal... Explore a bit further and perhaps you'll want to help us. No dollar donation is too small and volunteers to help fund and build new displays are welcome.
