Lindsay's Personal Page!
Friends, co-workers and fam,
Most of you know that I have been a big sister through Big Brothers, Big Sisters (BBBS) since 2007. My first match was with Nialanni in Seattle when she was 9. She is now 21 (gasp!). In 2015, Aaron and I were matched with Johnnie in Kansas City. When we met, he was 9 as well. He is now 12, and a huge part of our lives. We have him over every Wednesday night for dinner and to help him with homework. We additionally see him on the weekend when we take him to BBBS events. He will also be the ring bearer in our wedding June 2!
I think it’s safe to say we are big believers in BBBS. The need for mentors in our community is great, and BBBSKC does a fabulous job of matching little people with adults who are interested in providing guidance in school and life in general.
One way we have decided to support BBBSKC is by signing up to bowl at the Bowl for Kids’ Sake Fundraiser. The proceeds go directly to BBBS, as they rely on staff, volunteer mentors and donors just like you, to help provide professionally supported one-to-one relationships, matching Bigs with Littles to create positive change within our community.
•100% of BBBSKC High School Aged Littles graduated from High School
•Less than 3% of BBBSKC Littles had any interaction with the juvenile justice system
•84% of BBBSKC Littles report improved self-esteem and higher aspirations
•$1,500 to match and support a Little
•$250 to recruit a new Big
•100% of proceeds raised stay in Kansas City
•400 kids are currently waiting for your donation
