Make a Difference
Make The World Better, is a 501(c)3 public charity founded in 2013 by Connor Barwin, and his mom Margaret Bailey, during his first season playing for the Philadelphia Eagles. In spring 2018, MTWB merged with partner organization, Urban Roots, founded by Jeffrey Tubbs in 2008. MTWB believes that communities prosper when all people have access to high-quality, accessible and fun places to play and gather.
We envision a world where people of all ages are empowered to make a difference in their communities. We believe that park revitalization projects are essential vehicles to engage communities and strengthen a shared sense of stewardship. We are fortunate to work with diverse and dynamic communities in Philadelphia to enact long-term positive change.
