From the Kids of Minnesota

“I feel very blessed to have been a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. I truly believe in the power of mentorship. My Big Sister has been an incredible friend and mentor over the past fifteen years. In addition to the countless memories I’ve shared with her and her kind husband, I am fortunate to have been on the receiving end of her words of wisdom, advice, and encouragement. I hope she knows that her presence in my life has had a profound influence upon the person I am today.

“I am profoundly grateful to the many sponsors of the Federated Challenge. Because of their support, Big Brothers Big Sisters can carry forth their noble mission of empowering and guiding young people’s lives for the better.”

“I used to hate going to school. Now I really like school because I’m getting better grades. My Big Sister is a big help and always wants to know how I am doing in school.”

“I can’t always talk to my mom because she is always working. I know she cares about me and my brother and sister, but we don’t have a dad. My Big Brother always listens to me and helps me out.”

“I would never have been able to succeed in life, school, and my career without the support of someone older, wiser, and more experienced than myself. I rose on the shoulders of others, and now I want to give a young person that same kind of boost.”

“I’ll always love my Big Sister because she’s been there through thick and thin. I’m proud to call her my sister and my friend.”

“I miss my mom so much since she died. I love my dad, but I feel so lucky having a Big Sister to talk to.”

"More of these stories need to be told. But they’ll only be told if programs like Big Brothers Big Sisters are able to reach out to more young people and to families at risk. They’ll only be told if you continue to help make them possible. They’ll only be told if you help us tell them."
