It’s my birthday…

…and this is what I want: 

My birthday wish is that everyone who reads this will donate to Bowl for Kids’ Sake 2011 which supports Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Upstate. Click HERE to read more about our program, and click HERE to donate now!

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! $5, $10, $20, $100….whatever you can do, please help fulfill my birthday wish by paying it forward to help a child in need. We serve at-risk children in the Spartanburg area, and 100% of your donation goes directly to the little brothers and sisters we serve everyday.

Here’s who your money is helping: a child whose mom makes less than $5,000 per year and has five children under the age of 10, a child whose father lives across the street but hasn’t spoken with him in years, four children living with their grandmother because both parents are incarcerated-they can’t play outside due to the violence and drugs but its the only place they can afford to live, multiple children who only got Christmas presents this year because our office was able to provide them, a child who gets teased constantly at school for being “dumb” but he’s never had anyone read to him in his entire life

I know money is tight for everyone, but please consider my request. These are real kids experiencing real poverty everyday…and right in our own backyard. To help them reach their full potential, please DONATE today!
