Friends and Family Holiday Giving is Back!

Providing toys for children facing adversity during the holidays is wonderful, but wouldn't it truly be the most wonderful time of the year if all kids who wanted a mentor had an amazing Big Brother or Big Sister in their life?

Did you know? Each year 57% of Americans donate to a charity in some way over the holiday season. Make sure your friends and family are supporting a cause you love!

We are inviting you to participate in our Friends and Family Holiday Giving Campaign; it’s fun, easy and a great way to support an organization that you believe in!

At any given time, we may have 50 to 150 children waiting for us to find them a caring, stable mentor of their own, and we need your help! It takes about $1,000 to support one match for an entire year, and that includes the cost to recruit, screen and train even more Bigs to help even more at-risk youth.
