Earlier this year, we featured Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Wisconsin as our non-profit partner. Over those few months, we raised awareness for this wonderful organization with our social media outlets. After the two months, we donated $1 for every new “Like” we received on our Facebook page.
Big Brother Big Sisters of Central Wisconsin is a youth mentoring program that provides local youth with a supportive one-on-one relationship that can have a positive impact on their life. The program allows “Bigs” to cultivate a strong and lasting relationship with a child. The positive relationships that are built through successful mentoring can lead children to a brighter future.
