Big Brothers Big Sisters
Every Child Needs a Rolemodel.
Then children would be more likely to succeed
-More confident in their schoolwork performance
-Able to get along better with their families
-46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
-27% less likely to begin using alcohol
-52% less likely to skip school

Big Brothers Big Sister's mission is...
Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better,forever.
But why should you care?
Well, about $0.90 of every dollar you donate goes to making Littles and Bigs matched
They work locally! Right here in the Twin Cities
As recently as March 15, 2012, Gov. Branstad and Lt. Gov. Reynolds released a public schedule including the statement that they were to attend a Celebrity Bowling night as a fundraiser for BBBS
Tre and his Big Brother Mr. Cooper
BBBS believes that every child deserves soar and succeed!
About 7,000 students drop out of high school everyday!
Children everywhere are affected by poverty, parental incarceration, single parenting, ect... but BBBS gives children someone to look up to, respect and even love!
But how do we help!?
How do we help!?
Volunteer! Donate! Make a difference!
Donating goes towards programs, backround check costs, relationship support between the Big, Little, and the Little's family, and more.
If we donate and/or volunteer, we can really make a difference in a child's life!
If we donate or volunteer, children will have more opportunities and will be more likely to succeed!
Volunteering means becoming a big. It sounds like a huge commitment, but it's really not! Just a few hours a month can really make a difference.
If we don't donate or volunteer, children will continue to sit by and not live up to their fullest potenial
So please, be generous and donate your money and time to BBBS
Thank you!
