Giving Tuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement that takes place on the last Tuesday in November. We invite you to give BIG this Giving Tuesday by giving the gift of mentorship. Help Big Brothers Big Sisters take more children and youth off our waitlist to be matched with life-changing mentors.

Funds raised from Giving Tuesday 2022 were able to help take 4 children and youth off our waitlist to be matched with life-changing mentors like Michael.

Little Michael and Big Connor have been matched since July 2023 and have been enjoying a variety of activities together as they continue to grow their mentoring relationship. They have been to an Ice Dogs game, played at the arcade, and regularly enjoy playing street hockey together just to name a few! Little Michael is the oldest of 5 children and enjoys getting the opportunity for one-on-one time with a friend.

Michael’s mom has shared on numerous occasions that she has never seen Michael smile so big when he returns from a visit with Connor.

“My son does not stop asking when he is going to see his Mentor next because he really enjoys spending time with him.  He calls his Mentor a true Big Brother and I see a BIG difference in him after he comes home from each visit.”- Mom of Little Michael

The two hit it off so well that Michael invited Connor to his birthday party which gave Connor the opportunity to meet Michael’s family.

Connor has shared that he enjoys his time with Michael and is glad that he has already been given the opportunity to provide support and guidance to Michael at this point in their match.

Help support matches like Michael and Connor, consider donating to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Niagara and give BIG!
