Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) has greatly impacted the lives of children in single-parent low to mid income homes across the US for decades! That includes myself as I am a product of BBBS. When I was in elementary school I had a Big that picked me up on weekends and took me to the arcade, outside to play tennis and it always ended with dinner or some sort of treat. My mom was a great mom, but after a long week at work weekends were a time to catch up on things at the house and run errands. My Big set aside time to be a super positive impact in my life (asking about my week, grades, who I wanted to be when I grew up) and invest in me.>>>>>>>>> Now I want to back to an organization that I know impacts lives. I have signed up to volunteer and I have my final interview at the end of the month, but as an extra special gift I wanted use my birthday as a way to raise funds. Please consider NOT buying me a glass of wine or a shot and donating $20 or whatever you like to the cause.
