How is my life different since I received a mentor? Quite simply, it’s better.
I was 7 or 8 when my mom first signed me up to be matched with a big sister. Considering my situation, I always felt lucky to have the mom I do. My mom did everything she could to give my two sisters and me a “normal” life.
This past November, a group volunteers, Littles and staff from Big Brothers Big Sisters and a team from Invesco Canada were generously flown to the Dominican Republic by Westjet in order to join with Live Different to build a home for three families. Big Sister Jayme tells us about her experience.
In honour of our 100th year in 2013, we created a beautiful book filled with stories, poetry, artwork, and photos from and by the people who have experienced our programs.
If you are interested in purchasing a book, They are $20 each (+shipping/handling).
