 NEW MATCHING CHALLENGE LAUNCHED

Meet the Miller Family

The Millers* family (*they are too modest to share their real name) have lived in Oakville for many years and wanted to give back to the community. They developed our new Matching Challenge and committed to double every dollar raised during the campaign to match a child with a mentor. The Millers who have children of their own understand the need for mentorship and the need to fast track the number of children on our waiting list.

“Being a parent I truly see the struggle young children face today with technology, bullying and low self-esteem, every child should have someone to look up too or turn to for advice,” said Mrs. Miller. The generosity of the Millers will help Big Brothers Big Sister of Halton reach our goal of connecting 117 children with a positive role model.  

Please join the Millers in reaching our goal of $10,000.  You can make your donation at - Mentoring Matching Challenge

Baton Rouge Match of the Month Contest - Amberdeen and Meghna

Ambereen and Meghna have now been matched for 4 years and their bond continues to grow with each outing.  Ambereen has always found the time to spend time with Meghna, even though she has recently moved out of Oakville they still find time to see each other regularly.

Ambereen and Meghna have developed a truly special bond over the years.  If you were to ask them to describe what they mean to each other their response would be simple, “sisters”!  Ambereen has been a big part of Meghna’s life and she has been a role model to her who leads by example.  Meghna is not the only one who benefits from the match. If you were to bring up Meghna’s name to Ambereen, her eyes would light up and she would be able to tell you countless stories of how much she enjoys their time together and how many things she has learned about herself as a result of the match.  

Ambereen has been there to help Meghna grow from a girl the young woman that she is today and she plans to continue to be there for Meghna for years to come.

Congratulations to our winning match. They will receive a $100 gift certificate to celebrate together at Baton Rouge – Winston Churchill location.
