Like many others, I find myself in disbelief that this year is coming to an end. Personally, I want to bring back the warm weather and ditch the bitter-cold wind, but I’m excited to welcome yet another new year and see what it has in store.
With 2018 coming to a close, many individuals, families and companies are looking for ways to provide financial support in order to create a positive impact in their community. Now is a great time to plan your year-end giving and choose to help make a difference in the community you call home.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is grateful to have the opportunity to work with hundreds of kids and their families each and every day. When matched with an adult mentor, and supported throughout the duration of the match by donors, youth in our program are set on a path towards their biggest possible futures. You can help ignite potential within our community’s youth before this year ends!
Keep an eye out on our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and in your mailbox for our year-end appeal. As 2019 quickly approaches, we will be showcasing our new brand and diligently working to create more Big/Little friendships so that the new year starts off strong. Please become a part of furthering our mission! Make a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters and empower one child’s potential and encourage others to do the same! Your passion to ensure a brighter future for the youth of our community is evident, and together, we can do just that.
Here are some easy ways you can donate TODAY and help Big Brothers Big Sisters take more kids off our current waitlist of 130 youth:
- Make a one-time donation or become a Match Maker (monthly donor) online at bbbsomaha.org/donate.
- Divert a percentage of your everyday and holiday shopping receipts to our organization through Amazon Smile and TAGG (Together a Greater Good).
