Make a difference and celebrate my 30th, donate $30 to support Big Brothers and Big Sisters' Hermanos y Hermanas Mayores program.

As a young boy who immigrated to the United States full of dreams, I was always blessed with having people around me who supported me, who gave me opportunities, who looked out for me, and who believed in me. More importantly, I always had a role model - my brother Wilson - who I always looked up to, and who helped me overcome many obstacles that came before me.

Knowing that there are thousands of children who do not have a mentor or role models in their lives, I decided to join Big Brothers and Big Sisters of the National Capital Region. As a mentor and a Big Brother, I have been part of the Big Brother Big Sisters family for the past 5 years. It has been a tremendous joy to work with this wonderful organization, and even more enjoyable and rewarding to know that I am making a difference in someone’s life.

The impact that Big Brother Big Sisters has in the lives of children in our area will determine that child’s future. I have seen my little brother grow from a little kid who wanted to be a clown at a circus, to a teenager who now dreams of going to college and studying to be a doctor.

I ask that you support this cause - which is very close to my heart - and give a child a chance of a brighter future. Your contribution will support the Hermanos y Hermanas Mayores program, which aims to match Latino youth with young Latino Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
