Game Changers: Olivia
Olivia is an Austin professional who has become a Big Sister with Big Brothers Big Sisters for a second time. She has also become a BBBS Game Changer.
“When I got involved with BBBS of Central Texas and saw all of the programming and resources that this chapter offers Bigs, it blew my mind,” Olivia said. “BBBS provides programming, support and community partnerships that create great experiences for Bigs and Littles, allowing matches to focus on building strong relationships, rather than worrying so much about planning activities.”
Recognizing the significance and impact of these resources motivated Olivia to become a Game Changer. “I understand the difference that these resources make, but I also realized that they don’t just come naturally,” Olivia continued. “There has to be funding. As a Game Changer, I provide a small amount of money each month – about what I’d spend on a few cups of coffee – but these funds have a huge impact.”
Olivia’s monthly gift contributes to BBBS’ ability to hire more staff, provide support to Bigs and Littles, and, ultimately, change children’s lives for the better, forever.
“The resources and support BBBS provides are a huge part of what makes BBBS’ mentoring relationships so successful,” Olivia concluded. “It’s easy to get caught up in our own day-to-day dramas, but most of us really don’t have anything to be concerned about. A lot of the kids BBBS serves don’t have anything. They need our help.”
Thank you to Olivia and all of our other monthly donors for making a contribution that makes a difference for children in our community.
