Help Change the Way Kids Grow Up in KC!
Thank you for visiting our fundraising webpage for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City! We have a HUGE goal this year- to raise $5,000. No matter how big or little your donation, your contribution can start making a difference in the lives of young people today.
We have been a Big Couple to our (not so) Little Brother Dylan for 6 years now. He will be a junior in high school this fall and will get his drivers license this summer. We can’t wait to see what he decides to do after high school and plan to take him on some college campus visits soon.
Erica has also been a Big Sister to Pearl for 5 years. Pearl graduated from Park University last December and we couldn’t have been prouder. She also nominated Erica for the Kansas City Big Sister of the Year Award…and she won! They share an unbreakable bond and will be friends for life.
Through relationships like these, the statistics change. When a child is matched with a Big they are:
• 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
• 52% less likely to skip school
• 33% less likely to hit someone
• More confident of their performance in school and get along better with their families.
Make your tax-deductible donation today by donating here, mailing in cash/check or making a pledge to donate (pay when billed in August). Email us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
