This month, I was tasked with choosing a nonprofit for Ticket Pickers to support for the month of November. In my senior year of college, I had just finished up with a student job of 1 on 1 peer mentoring and it had inspired me to consider continuing mentorship.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Chicago chapter seemed like the obvious choice for me to look into since their mission of creating and supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth was very similar to what I had done in my time in college.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t give the number of hours that were necessary for me to be a Big Sister while also taking the time to transition into post-grad life and finding a job. I thought to push it off for a year while I got myself settled. Then, I was given a little surprise by becoming a mom in the past year which has led me to have to push back my goal even longer.
While I still want to contribute to this amazing program, my time commitment seemed to be less of an option and I was grateful to be able to highlight Big Brothers Big Sisters with Ticket Pickers while also being able to give them a donation to assist in their goals.
