Big Brothers/Big SistersBig Brothers/Big Sisters sent me the following email:
January is National Mentoring Month … and we’ve set a goal to recruit 10,000 people who have an interest in volunteering this month. You know what a difference a "Big Brother" or "Big Sister" makes in the life of a child. The truth is, we need more generous people like you to volunteer as "Bigs". Especially as Big Brothers.
So please help us recruit Big Brothers with Tell-a-Guy e-cards. Send them to 5 male friends and help make a child’s dream come true. Too many boys who want one don’t have Big Brothers. These boys are ready and eager for someone to play catch with, a fellow computer-game lover, or a buddy to haggle over the last slice of pizza and then share a movie.
What better way is there to kick off the new year for these kids than finding them a Big?
For more information on becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister or the programs the organization offers, go to the BBBS of America website. The national site also provides information on local agencies.
