Waiting Little of the Month: Meet Gabe!
Why I Want A Big: “I want a Big Brother who I can build stuff with and have fun!”
About Gabe: Gabe is an outgoing 9 year old boy who lives in Chilmark with his mom and has been waiting for a Big Brother almost a year.
Interests: Gabe is interested in a wide range of activities including soccer, gymnastics, building things, art & yoga. Gabe recently joined the Cub Scouts and has also started participating in cross-fit. Gabe also loves reading, especially about dragons, dinosaurs & Godzilla. Gabe is a “constantly chill” kid who is always willing to help, and his current favorite TV show is The Simpsons. A big brother who likes a wide range of activities, both indoors and outdoors, would be a great mentor for Gabe.
Things You Can Do Together:
· Play soccer
· Go to yoga
· Build something together
· Play a board game (Gabe is getting good at Chess!)
Why He Needs a Big: Gabe lives with his mom, who would like him to have an additional positive adult in his life to explore his interests, beyond what she is able to do with him. Gabe’s mom would really like a Big Brother who could be a consistent part of Gabe’s life to take him bowling, fishing in the summer or just exploring new places on island.
There are 14 boys, in addition to Gabe, on Martha’s Vineyard who are currently waiting to be matched with a Big Brother.

We hope you’ll also consider sharing Gabe’s story to help him, and other kids on the wait list, find a Big!
