I've been working for the Heart of Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters agency for the last three and a half years. While working here, I've been fortunate enough to see first hand what this awesome program does to the youth in our community. There is nothing better than hearing the impact the program has on the youth as well as the volunteers.

I also happen to be a mentor myself, in the Lunch Buddies program. I've had the pleasure of being Lyric's "Big" since September 2015. Once a week I visit her at lunch and we talk about our families, how she has been doing in school, and anything new that happens to be going on that particular week. We also love to play board games like Uno, Candyland, and Battleship. Somehow she wins 95% of the timeÖIím still not sure how she does this. I was also lucky enough to attend one of her basketball games this past Fall. She did so well and plays some excellent defense! Iím hoping she can teach me a thing or two.

Please consider helping us by participating in this year's Bowl for Kids' Sake on March 25th and 26th, or donating to the cause so more kids can have a mentor of their own. I am hoping to raise $1,000 this year! 100% of the money raised stays in our community.

Did you know that 67% of former Littles surveyed agree that their Big played a role in their decision to attend college?
