DeGraff Stables Helps Children Succeed and Thrive Through Big Brothers Big Sisters
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. BBBS strives to develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is not your typical organization. They help children realize their potential and build their futures. They nurture children and strengthen communities. Big Brothers Big Sisters targets the children who need them the most, including those living in single parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration. Starting something begins with finding a great match between a Big and a Little. Making these matches, and performing all the background work involved with them, is possible because of donations from people like you. It’s also why they are able to offer such a wide variety of programs that pair children, ages 6 through 18, with role models in one-to-one relationships. Visit their website: http://www.BBBS.org
At DeGraff Stables, we couldn’t make these donations possible without the support of our stallion owners! We wish to thank Seabreeze Pleasure Horses, Ironwood Acres and the HBF Iron Man Partnership whom along with the many other owners around the country whom donate breedings to the many futurity program that help fund the show prize funds. The mare owners that purchase these reduced rate breedings are additionally appreciated for their participation as the offspring are able to accumulate valuable earnings.
