Consider giving a gift that will change a child's life by helping us find Big Brothers and Sisters for the 30 Kids in 30 Days. All of the children pictured here are on our waiting list. That means they're patiently waiting for a Big Brother or Sister who will positively impact their lives. Your $1,000 gift will allow us to match one of these Littles with a caring adult mentor. It costs us about $1,000 to sustain one match for an entire year. Your $1,000 gift will change a child's life for the better.
