Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waterloo is hosting a lively, Online Holiday Auction which began on November 26 and ends on December 3 to support the children of their community. “We believe by changing the course of young lives we can in turn be changing the course of a community’s future.” As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer support mentoring network, for more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. This is the second annual online charity auction which BBBS of Waterloo has hosted.
A fundraising auction website during the holiday season is a fantastic idea. We are in the mood for fun during this festive time. Our charitable spirits are vibrant and we’re thinking of others who are in need. And the items that each winning bidder inherits can be given as a Christmas gift to a loved one. In-kind donations may be donated at anytime, and general online donations may be made throughout the year on their auction website.
Given the number of online auction items on their website and great variety they’d pique anyone’s interest, from vacations to chocolate. Their participants are having great fun bidding, with each winning bidder receiving an email informing them of their grand feat. On their fundraising auction website the Information web page offers a great set of instructions ensuring for everyone a user-friendly experience. The creativity of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waterloo in finding such a wide range of donors and sponsors to contribute auction items is certain to add to their success.
The funds raised during the Big Brothers Big Sisters Online Holiday Auction fundraising website will go directly to the programs offered by BBBS. They help children achieve success in school, improve their self-confidence, and to avoid risky behaviors such as getting into fights and trying drugs and alcohol. Their unique brand of one-to-one mentoring, in which a child facing adversity is carefully matched with a caring adult mentor in a relationship supported by professional Big Brothers Big Sisters staff members, changes lives for the better forever.
