Founder of ‘The Inspiring Project’ preparing for first impact festival, a day of positivity for the community
BRIDGEVILLE, Del. – On Saturday, Chase Marvil, founder of the popular “Inspiring Project” is holding his organization’s first Impact festival. It’s a day full of positivity and continuing his mission to eliminate bullying and suicidal thoughts in people.
Back in 2013, Woodbridge high school student Marvil began a social media movement called the Inspiring Project. It blossomed into a global movement where people can simply post a photo with a quote or encouraging caption-, add #theinspiringproject, and in turn, help uplift others.
Now he’s hosting a festival with games, vendors, crafts, mental health resources, and much more. Marvil tells 47 ABC, that all proceeds go towards a scholarship fund, mental health, bullying, and suicide prevention initiatives in the community. “I think that’s been the biggest help and biggest grace of mine is that I’ve been able to have local school districts and local people be able to support what I’m doing and my mission, and that’s why I’m able to do things like this IMPACT festival.” Marvil adds, “I’m hoping for the best, and like I said with the first year you can only go up from there, so we’ll learn a lot this year about what we don’t have and what we can improve on.”
The festival is being held at the Bridgeville Delaware library from 11 to 4 p.m. For more information, click here.
