Look how we've grown! 27 July 2020Posted by: Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawke's Bay
Over the month of June we ran a marketing campaign across news print, radio, billboard and social media which proved very successful - resulting in an influx in new mentor enquiries. We have been working hard to formalise new matches and at our Laserforce group outing last week we were able to see just how much we've grown! It was heartwarming and very rewarding to see so many of our matches together in the one place and having so much fun!

Go Coffee Free on Fridays to help a Hawke's Bay Child 21 May 2020Posted by: Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawke's Bay
Give Up Coffee on Fridays and Invest in a brighter future for a Hawke's Bay child.
Our mentoring model offers young people in need of support an opportunity to learn social, emotional and life skills through exposure to positive modelling by their volunteer mentor.
On average, it costs approximately $5 per day (about the same as a takeaway coffee), or $1800 per year, to make and sustain a Big & Little match.
Every $5 you donate ensures that our Big & Little matches will remain strong and supported for another day further.
Go coffee free on Fridays and donate here!
If you want to set up a regular donation (weekly or monthly) to BBBS, sign into your Givealittle Account and you can create a regular donation/GiveaLittle plan, via your bank account, or recurring Card payments.
Supporting our youth during Covid-19 18 April 2020Posted by: Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawke's Bay
Distance cannot beat connection. It is more important now than ever to be supporting our young people. Our mentors are still maintaining regular contact (contactless) with their mentees, and we are actively recruiting new mentors for the growing demand we are seeing of children needing support from a safe adult outside their family circle. In order to continue this valuable service we are actively seeking donations to support the longevity of Big Brothers Big Sisters in Hawke's Bay.
