Give Big, Give Wisely: Give to Big Brothers Big Sisters!

Just Do It

If you already know all about  
just go to  
and donate now. 

But if you need to know who to give to, read on friends.

Why you should give to Big Brothers Big Sisters on May 3rd: 

1. It's what kids need: Studies show that  kids need positive, individual attention from adults in order to thrive and grow, but there's less and less of that going around these days than ever before. When kids get a Big Brother or Big Sister they get a friend and advocate all to themselves. 

2. It's unique: There aren't many community based mentoring programs out there.  Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas provides youth with a unique one to one, face to face, regular on-going and consistent mentoring relationship that lasts anywhere from 9 months to a lifetime. 

3. It leverages volunteers in a Big way: There are nearly 3,000 volunteers every year who make time in their lives to spend time on our youth. When you give to Big Brothers Big Sisters you are thanking every one of them for their service. 

4. It works: Kids with a Big Brother or Big Sister are more likely to avoid negative behaviors like truancy, violence, crime, sex, or drugs, and more likely to engage in positive behaviors such as staying in school, delaying gratification and planning for the future than youth without a "Big."

5. The demand for Big Brothers Big Sisters services is overwhelming: There are over 1,000 kids waiting everyday! Help us help them! 

It's the Big Give on May 3rd all day long, but we hope you'll help us
