All-Stars for Kids is a fundraising campaign running throughout August in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area.
The funds raised from this campaign will help create and nurture life-changing mentoring relationships for children and youth in our community who are dealing with significant life challenges that no one should have to face alone.
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.
