Hey all!
I have been matched with my little for over a year now and it has been the best thing EVER. We have gone on field trips to the Clemens Center to see Cinderella (tiaras on our heads) and Hands on Glass to make (matching, obvi) glass pumpkins, we have participated in art classes, science experiments, and game nights and we’ve planned matching outfits (with cat ears, always) for the holiday parties Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) puts on.

When I say this is my favorite program, this is my f.a.v.o.r.i.t.e program EVER! For one hour each week, I get the chance to laugh and learn alongside a ten year old who does nothing but make me smile.  

BBBS operates on a small budget and you can be sure that every penny of each dollar  goes straight to the program. Their staff of two cares so much about the kids and makes sure that each child and every mentor gets the most out of the program. BBBS staff knows every one by name and pays close attention to the individual needs of each match to ensure the program benefits everyone.  

Big Brothers Big Sisters is one of the things that has helped me fall in love with this place I've adopted as my home- it spreads love unconditionally, shares compassion for its neighbors, and has a simple sense what it means to be a human to give us hope in each day. They care about the kids, the mentors, and the community and it just FLAT OUT ROCKS!

Thanks for taking the time to read my essay, I appreciate it! If you are able to donate, any bit counts :) If not, perhaps you've got a spare hour in your week to consider becoming a Big yourself - you won't regret it <3
