Potential is everywhere. We don't have to create it... we just have to defend it.
- We have been matched with our Little Brother, Dylan, for a whopping 12 years! To celebrate 12.5 years of friendship we want to raise an all-time Ostroski Bowl for Kids' Sake record, $20,000 for BBBSKC. Dylan is thriving today, he is attending JCCC, has a full time job and he recently got engaged!!!
- We were also matched up to our Little Brother, Mark, in July 2019. We recently celebrated his 10th birthday with a parade of friends and family driving by his house. He's such a great kid, he loves soccer, school and his mom and sister. We really enjoy spending time with him and cheering him on in life.
- Pearl and I are no longer actively matched in the program but we still hang out and keep in touch! She's my sister for life, I love her so much. This photo was from our annual Christmas concert.
BBBSKC relies on staff, amazing volunteer mentors, and donors just like you to support over 1,300 Big and Little friendships in our community. When matched with a Big, 99% of Little Brothers and Sisters in Kansas City graduate high school on-time, and 84% report improved self-esteem. Right now, there are 415 Littles waiting for a Big. We are working to reach our fundraising goal so these kids can be matched with a positive, caring mentor.
The BBBSKC program is free to Littles and their families, but it costs $1,500 to support a match for a year, and $250 to recruit each new Big. When you give, your generosity helps empower the potential of the next generation of college graduates, community leaders, and entrepreneurs. We hope you'll join us in our efforts to defend the potential of kids in KC by donating today.
TOGETHER, WE ARE DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL.
This is our 16th year being involved with BBBSKC and Summer Bowl for Kids' Sake. Year after year, we are blown away by the support we receive from our coworkers, friends and family. THANK YOU for believing in us and the BBBS mission and for defending the potential in our Littles, Dylan, Mark and Pearl. We deeply love this organization and we love and appreciate each of you for supporting us; it means so much.
