Globe Aware would like to dedicate this newsletter to recognize and honor a man of great substance and kindness. Michael Sproul was an individual who not only believed in helping others, but left behind a legacy in doing so.
Michael was born in Calcutta, India on October 4th 1985. He came to the United States shortly after, and was raised by his mother, Nedra Sproul. He grew up to become a key member of the Vivint Gives Back team, who has partnered with Globe Aware in many projects in Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Ghana and Romania. He worked actively providing opportunities for kids with intellectual disabilities and made it his mission to improve the lives of others. He passed away unexpectedly on July 1st, while hiking at the Havasupai Falls. Michael was an experienced hiker and loved the outdoors.
Michael embodied the spirit of giving back and caring for others. He wanted to world to be a better place. He was one of the kindest and most selfless people you would ever meet, and the world needs more people like him. His work is a true testament of how he lived, and we hope to continue to impact the lives of others, in his honor.
Michael Sproul had a contagious sense of adventure, boundless energy, a compassionate heart and a sensitive soul. His sense of humor and caring made him a source of great joy and love to his family and friends. He will forever be in our hearts. We stand with his wife, Meg Monk Sproul, his mother, Nedra Sproul, as well as his coworkers at Vivint Gives Back led by Holly Mero, and so many friends and extended family, and share in their grief of a life lost much too soon.
Michael died doing what he loved most, being outdoors. Due to the astronomical fees in air lifting Michael away from the site and other costs associated with his passing, his friends have started this t-shirt fundraiser as a way to help. If you would like to support this effort and #livelikemike, please consider purchasing a shirt from the link below. All shirts are $25. This fundraising effort is unaffiliated with Globe Aware and all proceeds go directly to the Sproul family. https://mike-sproul.myshopify.com/
