#GivingFirsts for #GivingTuesday - December 3, 2019

About This Campaign

#GivingFirsts for #GivingTuesday

Would you believe that many children have never experienced the simple things in life like visiting the beach, baking a cake, or going fishing? These are the things memories are made of, yet many of the kids we serve don’t get the opportunity to create these fun and lasting memories. Most are living with a single parent who is busy working to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.

This is why a Big Brother or Big Sister is so important. They give their Little an opportunity to experience new things and to see that the world is full of exciting possibilities!

Today and through the end of the year, we ask that you help us create more Big-Little matches that provide these first time experiences for kids. Each person who donates on December 3 for #GivingTuesday will receive email updates throughout the year as a Little Brother or Little Sister has a first experience with their Big!

THANK YOU for making a BIGGER impact today!

Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Coastal & Northern New Jersey

Millions of children need a caring adult role model. 


When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today's youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.
