Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
April 27, 2011

Big Brothers Big Sisters is an exceptional organization. My son's father left when my son was only 2 and as my son got older he really needed a strong male role model in his life. When he was 9, I found out about Big Brothers and applied. He got the best big brother ever. His Big Brother would spend time with him every other weekend doing anything from hiking, biking, camping, surfing, volunteering at soup kitchens, going to amusement parks, etc. Over the years he was always there for him. He gave him the advice and guidance that he really needed from a strong role model. He was always there for him 24/7 no matter what he needed to talk about. He showed up at father/son events with him. He really boosted my son's self esteem and helped turn him into a responsible, loving, compassionate young adult. I am forever greatful to this organization.
