We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support received during this campaign and would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported All-Stars For Kids this year. We could not make such a positive impact on the lives of children and youth without the generous support of the community.
We want to thank our dedicated supporters, Gary Nissen and Qualico, for their continued commitment to mentoring and matching donation of $125,000. Thanks to PBA Land & Development and an anonymous donor for stepping up with additional matching dollars to ensure ALL donations were matched, dollar for dollar.
A BIG shout-out to ourAll-Stars, Bo-Levi Mitchell, Sean Monahan, John Morris, Jasmine Mian & Michelle Salt, all of our All-Star Ambassadors and Community Partners who showed their commitment to the campaign in such a BIG way, we cannot thank you enough.
Thanks to the generosity of long-time champions, Qualico and Gary Nissen, every dollar raised will be matched up to $125,000, for a grand total of $250,000!!
We’ve drafted a team of All-Stars to help us reach our goal for All-Stars For Kids. Professional athletes, Olympians and local All-Stars will be sharing their mentoring stories and spreading the word about the power of mentoring.
Mentoring Makes A 'BIG' Difference!
Children with mentors are more likely to do well in school, go on to successful careers, live happy, healthy lives, and give back to their communities. In fact, every $1 invested in mentoring by BBBS returns $18 to society.
There are thousands of children and youth in and around Calgary who have been impacted by mentoring - read some of their stories.
