100 Mentors In 100 Days
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit is launching its 6th annual “100 Mentors in 100 Days” campaign with the theme “Start Something: Engage. Inspire. Invest.”
The goal of the campaign is to meet the ever growing need for an increased number of mentors, particularly men. The campaign also includes a fundraising goal of $60,000. Supporters are asked to become mentors and/or recruit mentors and give dollars to offset costs for its ongoing mentoring programs the first 100 days of the year.
“Each January, we celebrate people who volunteer to mentor children for National Mentoring Month. We strive to kick the year off in a BIG way by providing even more mentors for our young people,” said BBBSMD, President and CEO, Dara Munson. “This year we are excited to have The Coca-Cola Company on board as a sponsor. This campaign is crucial to bringing new individuals and supporters into the mentoring community to help uplift children and help them achieve their greatness.”
The “100 Mentors in 100 Days” campaign will support the organization via mentors and funds and ultimately, positive outcomes for children. The campaign will culminate in April during Volunteer Appreciation Week where old and new mentors will be celebrated for their commitment to tri-county area youth.
Most children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters are in single-parent and low-income families or households where a parent is incarcerated. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”).
