Big Brothers Big Sisters is preparing for the most important fundraising event of our year - Bowl for Kids Sake. This year, we hope to STRIKE IT BIG and accomplish our biggest and most successful bowl ever! Last year we were able to raise more than $140,000 in support of our programs and services and serve 455 young people due to the generous contributions of people and companies like you.

Why Your Help is Needed
All children deserve to fulfill their potential. Unfortunately, many donít have the support and encouragement to get there. Enter Big Brothers Big Sisters! We connect youth with carefully screened mentors and support that result in friendships to ensure optimum outcomes like resilience, improved school achievement, confidence and the strength to make positive life choices.

Many of the youth in our programs are marginalized and live in circumstance (such as financial insecurity, violence in their homes or neighbourhoods, absent parent(s) or family illness) leaving them at risk for toxic stress. This has an adverse effect on the developing brain, emotional regulation, and day-to-day things like school behaviour, peer relationships and overall mental health.

But hereís the AMAZING thing! Mentoring is an intervention and strategy to help kids succeed! Something as simple as a consistent, positive relationship with someone who believes in you, promotes healthy development, creating a foundation for school achievement, economic productivity, and responsible citizenship.

Your support of Bowl for Kids Sake is an investment in our mentoring programs which benefits all of us, socially and economically.
