March 2017 marks 4 years of Denariah and I being a match in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta. We have enjoyed participating in the Bowl For Kids Sake fundraiser each year.
With your donation, more Bigs and Littles can be paired up, more friendships can be gained, and improved outlooks on life can be started. 100% of your tax-deductible donation stays in our community to provide more children with a strong role model in their lives.
In spite of the major risk factors facing many children in the Atlanta area, the impact of BBBSMA’s mentoring programs is extraordinary. Of the children that participated in the program in 2015, 97% were promoted to the next grade, 94% increased their scholastic competence and 98% graduated from high school on time. Children in the program are less likely to engage in risky behaviors and 99% do not become involved in the juvenile justice system.
I am proud to support this cause, which believes that all kids have value and the ability to succeed, regardless of their circumstances. Thank you for your time and generosity support this life-changing program!
