Are you ready to Start Something BIG?

We have a day for giving thanks.

We have two for getting deals.

Now we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. 


When you make a donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Elkhart County, you are helping to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. 

We need your help to find the perfect Big Brother or Big Sister for all of the Littles on our waiting list. Your donation pays for Training Sessions, Background Checks, Professional Match Support and more so that our matches can make a BIG Impact.

Our goal is to receive a donation of any amount to support each of these waiting Littles. 


That means we need 130 people willing to Start Building Friendships, Start New Perspectives, Start Changing Lives.


Mark your calendars and get ready to Start Something on #GivingTuesday!
