BENEFITING: Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area
EVENT DATE: May 31, 2015
If like me and Whitney Houston you beleive that The Children are the Future then this is a great opportunity to make good on that belief.
For the past 3 years I have had the amazing honor to serve as a Big Brother to an amazing teenager here in San Francisco. There are a number of reasons that the opportunity for me to particiapte was there, but here are 2 important ones:
First, there is a need. Across the Bay Area there are hundreds of kids waiting to be matched with a mentor that can help them in so many ways, but most importantly by being a friend.
Second, there was financial support to make this happen. The cost of making a match is $2500 for the first year and then $1500/year after that to sustain it. What a bargain, for less than a 1 week vacation to Europe a child's future is made brighter and a Bigs life is changed forever.
For the time being, I will leave the need for more Bigs to volunteer to the side. What I and BBBS need right now is your financial support to make sure more matches are made and sustained.
On a very short timeline I am seeking to raise $5000 by the end of May. I am very humbled to know I have so many people that I can turn to for support.
Let's see what we can make happen and take this opportunity to "Be a part of something BIG!"
ps: that look on my face is because I am SHOCKED at how much money has been donated! Thank you all so much!
