Thanks to your collective donations over the last few days around Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday, and #GivingTuesday, we've raised over $1,000...and counting! These donations help us to start NEW life-changing friendships between Bigs and Littles, like our newest Kaua'i match Big Sister Elizabeth & Little Sister Carly.
There are a lot of nonprofits in Hawai'i and many important needs to meet. That makes us especially grateful for your support of mentoring during this season of giving. We would not be able to provide free programs for families and volunteers without generous donor support. We are thankful.

"It’s easy! I’d write a check every month if I had the mind space to remember, but this option allows me to give without any hassle. Big Brothers Big Sisters' purpose affects all who surround us."
