After six weeks of fundraising, four very lucky children had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride in a helicopter, courtesy of Bristow Group.
In the first year of bringing “Lift Up My Little” to Greater Dallas, local BBBS matches competed to raise the most money, with the top four winning helicopter rides. The program raised over $11,000 in the fundraising competition.
The Lift Up My Little fundraising campaign is a prime example of another way Big Brothers Big Sisters teaches their Littles lifelong lessons through learning teamwork, developing strategic-thinking skills and networking for a cause greater than themselves.
The Littles’ effort and creativity were rewarded with a sense of what victory feels like with their mentor by their side, 200 feet high in the air.
