Tuesday, November 29th is recognized as “Giving Tuesday”, opening the season of giving around the world following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday unites charities, companies and individuals in the spirit of giving and over the next few days I’ll be profiling a few local organizations that you can support on this day – and throughout the year.
Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland
Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland is hoping to spread the message about mentoring this Giving Tuesday. They have a goal to raise $2,000, the cost to make one Big Sister match, within 24 hours and to sign up two new volunteers.
It’s proven. The impacts of mentoring last a lifetime. From improvements in school performance and higher career achievements to stronger relationships and increased self-esteem, mentoring changes lives.
Big Sisters helps girls reach their full potential through mentorship — and there are currently over 160 girls on their waitlist.
