Help Me Support Big Brothers Big Sisters!
Donate Today to Empower Potential!
I'm asking for my friends' and family's support for an organization near and dear to my heart! I'm participating in the BBBS Summer Bowl fundraiser. Our team goal is to raise $2500 by July 9th. (Would love to raise more!).
There are over 300 kiddos waiting for a match. Some have been waiting for over a year. Kensey and I have been matched for almost 4 years now. I've seen so many positive changes in Kensey's attitude, confidence, and social skills over the last 4 years. Her and her family have been a huge blessing in my life in so many ways!
Kensey and I were featured as Kansas City’s BBBS March Match last year. Here is part of what she had to say about our match: "Julie is awesome! We go out to eat, skating, shopping, and take carriage rides to the movies. She loves me very much and I love her. I have the best big sister in the world! She helps me with homework when I have it and I like talking to her on the phone. I love her so much and wish she could live with me!"
BBBSKC relies on staff, amazing volunteer mentors, and donors just like you to support over 1,300 Big and Little friendships in our community. When matched with a Big, 99% of Little Brothers and Sisters in Kansas City graduate high school on-time, and 84% report improved self-esteem.
The BBBSKC program is free to Littles and their families, but it costs $1,500 to support a match for a year, and $250 to recruit each new Big. When you give, your generosity helps empower the potential of the next generation of college graduates, community leaders, and entrepreneurs. I hope you’ll join me in my efforts to defend the potential of kids in KC by donating today.
I appreciate any donations, big or small, to help reach our goal. Together, we are Defenders of Potential!
