Match of the Month Big Sister Joan with their Little Sister Maddy
Joan and Maddy are a very unique match at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton. Maddy is Joan’s second Little Sister match. Her first was with Jessie, Maddy’s older sister. When Jessie graduated from the program, being matched with Maddy seemed like such a perfect fit as she had known Maddy for most of her life. Joan and Maddy have been matched for almost 3 years and enjoy a variety of activities including; watching movies, going out for dinner, bowling, and attending agency group events. Since being matched Joan continues to amazing us! Despite moving more than 2 hours away she still makes the time (and the trek!) to see Maddy every other week for a fun-filled visit. Congratulations to you both on being May’s Match of the Month!

Last year, The Millers* family (*they are too modest to share their real name) very generously initiated a Matching Challenge, offering to match, dollar for dollar, new donations up to the amount of $10,000. These funds were to enable the agency to increase our reach and match more children with a positive adult role model. This decision struck a chord in the community and we pleased to say that we were able to raise $10,000 from generous community support that was matched by the Millers for a total of $20,000. This assisted us with matching 35 children with their own Big Brother or Big Sister mentor!
To quote Mrs. Miller, a second year of challenge is a great way to ring in the 2016. We therefore are pleased to announce that the Millers have committed extending their matching challenge for a second year. If you want to join the Milers and help find us match even more children this year, than please join our matching challenge today. Together, we can unlock a child’s true potential creating a future where anything is possible
Please join the Millers in reaching our goal of $10,000. You can make your donation at - Mentoring Matching Challenge
