Bowl For Kids' Sake

Hello Friends,

Thank you very much to everyone who has participated in our fundraiser for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids' Sake!

I'm incredibly grateful for all the donations + for your purchase last weekend during our proceeds day.  We still have $300 to go for our $1,000 goal to be met - and I think that we can get there!

Just to share a little bit about why this is so close to my heart; last January I took a deep breath and walked into the local BBBS office to apply to become a Big Sister.  It was something I had wanted to do for some time, but I seriously doubted my qualifications to mentor a child: life owning a small business can be such a roller-coaster, and to be completely honest, life is just messy + chaotic sometimes!

But with the help and encouragement of the BBBS staff and their excellent training, I grew in confidence that I'd learn as I went along.  This month, my Little Sister and I celebrated a year together!  We've celebrated birthdays (puppy and human ones), cooked + baked, played games, gone swimming, taken the pups for walks, painted, carved pumpkins, gotten gelato, and had the most incredible year together.  Mostly, I've just been a regular person in my Little's life, someone she is able to talk to and share her hopes and dreams with.  To be her friend.  It's incredible how much love I have for my Little Sister, and how much she and her Mom have changed my life.

I'll never forget the first time she called me her sister.  It's been the best journey.

My Little had been on a waiting list for over a year before I walked into the BBBS office; it breaks my heart to think of all the children waiting to be matched.  This is why this fundraiser is so important to me: this money goes towards helping future Littles be paired with the best trained + supported Bigs possible.

Every $1 matters!  To donate, please click this LINK.  And always, you can volunteer as a Big Brother or Big Sister to a child here in our community.  It's that first step that's the hardest.

Until Soon,
