Everyone wants to do something meaningful with their life. Add a little purpose to a child’s routine.
It can be playing catch at the park. Grabbing a bite from a food truck. The simple stuff kids want to do. More than that, Bigs get a chance to share a little bit of their lives and skills with a kid who’s eager for new experiences. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Simply being there means everything. With just a one-year commitment, a Big can make a huge impact on the life of a Little Brother or Little Sister.
- Catch a new flick together
- Grab a bite to eat
- Play a fun board game
- Have a catch in the park
- Just hang out and joke around
