Review for Big Brothers Big Sisters Of America, Philadelphia, PA, USA
I wish more people could experience attending an annual Big Brothers Big Sisters award dinner and hear from the Little Brother and Little Sister of the Year about how much they enjoyed the program. Listening to the comments from the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the year really make you aware of how important this program can be in your community for your children.
Having been a Big Sister for over six years, I can truly say that this is a most valuable program for our country. While attending the high school graduation of my Little Sister, I read her positive comments in her yearbook regarding having a Big Sister.
I became a Big SIster when I was 37 years old, after seeing an article in a local newspaper. I've made lifelong friends from attending the various events with my Little Sister, which were held by the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lehigh Valley organization and were of great importance to my Little Sister in many ways: meeting new people, experiencing new places, etc.
Needless to say, if I won the lottery, I would definitely give a big chunk of it to Big Brothers Big Sisters!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...the way it POSITIVELY effects the life of a Little Sister or Little Brother FOREVER.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...make sure it receives as much funding as possible, for the good it does in the life of a girl or boy who benefit from having a role model to help them in growing to be a mature, responsible individual in this great country of ours.
