Once again, we come to you at an important time of the year - the season of giving. As you prepare for the holidays and spend time with family and friends, please find it in your heart to make a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mid-South. At BBBS, our
holiday wish is for children facing adversity to have the support of a
caring mentor like Big Sister Lindsey…
Lindsey was matched with Little Sister Arianna at the beginning of 2017. Arianna is being raised by her father in a single parent household. She told us she wanted to be enrolled in the program because she was very lonely and wanted someone to talk to about the conflict in her family.
We chose to match Arianna with Lindsey because she is a University of Memphis social work student that wanted to offer a child true friendship and help with self-esteem issues. Lindsey and Arianna met and became friends instantly.
The pair spends their time together baking cookies, having movie nights and sometimes just talking. Arianna’s dad reports that Lindsey has filled a huge void in Arianna’s life and she has blossomed into a more confident and expressive young lady.
There are so many children in Memphis like Arianna - in need of a healthy, supportive relationship that will help them reach their full potential.
gift will be put to immediate use to help provide
role models for the 103 children waiting to be matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister.
Would you help us make their dreams come true this holiday season by making a
gift today? Thank you for your support of our mission – to change the life of a child for the better, forever.
