Big Brothers Big Sisters

Do you know what Big Brothers/Big Sisters is? Have you considered volunteering? You can count this as your recruitment call! :-)

My little sister, Aireol, and I have been matched for two years this month! I first knew I wanted to be a big sister after watching one of my mom's friend's and her husband with their two little brothers when I was probably 10 years old. Being matched with Aireol has been awesome! We do lots of things together including just hanging out at my house and window shopping to bowling and manicures. BB/BS also has a lot of activities that they sponsor as well - sporting events, concerts, plays, discounts at restaurants, etc.
