Help Me Support Big Brothers Big Sisters!
I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program for 6 years. Maya and I were matched when she was just 10 years old and in a few short weeks she’ll turn 17. The last 6 years have been a wild ride that I wouldn’t change for anything. I’ve had the opportunity to watch Maya grow up to be a kind-hearted, smart and tenacious young woman who has the confidence to take on anything she sets her mind to. Maya and I have really bonded over the years and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next 6 years takes us.
I strongly believe in the power of this program and hope that someday there is no longer a Waiting List for Littles to find Bigs in KC.
Right now, there are over 300 Littles waiting for a Big. I’m working to reach my fundraising goal so these kids can be matched with a positive, caring mentor because every kid deserves the opportunity to form a friendship like ours.
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. Every dollar makes a difference. Potential is everywhere. We don’t have to create it — we just have to defend it!
