Big Brothers Big Sisters‏

A “Big” Favor
I need to ask you a favor. As you may know, I'm extremely passionate about Big Brothers Big Sisters. I have served on the Board of Directors for a decade and been involved with the agency for approximately 13 years. Serving as a mentor to my "little" Shamain Mercado (who is now 23 years old and serving in our armed forces) has been one of the most worthwhile experiences of my life.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters does phenomenal work here in our community. Now in our 50th year, we were able to grow to serving 2,100 children. This means we've matched 2,100 Bigs with 2,100 Littles, which is the highest number of matches we have ever served! Last year, our Board was named Board of the Year and was selected to receive this award out of 426 affiliate agencies throughout the country considered, due to the quality of our programs, our growth and efforts in meeting our community's needs.

This year, more than ever before in the current economic climate, we are really struggling to meet our financial goals. I want to do all that I can to prevent any slow down in our progress of reaching our ambitious goals.

Here's how you can help.
Please consider making a donation. It's easy and it would mean the world to me and the kids that we assist. Simply click on the following link:

The entire donation process should take you a minute or less. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Obviously, the bigger the better. If you'd prefer, you can mail me a check. Once you've made a contribution, please let me know via e-mail: I want to make sure that I share the good news with my fellow board members.

As always, I wish you the very best and thank you in advance for your compassion and assistance. Mark
