Over the next two months, we will be working with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area. In August and September, we will be donating $1 from each net new newsletter subscriber to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area and their All-Stars for Kids Campaign. Here is some more information on them.
WHAT IS ALL-STARS FOR KIDS?
• All-Stars For Kids is a fundraising campaign in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area that runs each year throughout the month of August.
• This year, long-time mentoring champions Gary Nissen and Qualico have generously offered to match all donations up to $125,000, for a grand total of $250,000.
• All of the money raised is used to create and empower life-changing mentoring relationships for children and youth in and around Calgary who are facing adversity.
