Big Brothers Big Sisters Ottawa is looking for your help. Ottawa police chief Vernon White and “A” news anchor Sandra Blaikie are launching the Buddy Up fundraising campaign to provide more kids in need with older mentors. Right now, there’s a lit of 160 kids waiting to be placed with mentors, and the Buddy Up campaign is striving to reduce that wait list.

The campaign is challenging the community to make $100 gifts to support the Big Brothers Big Sisters Ottawa Match Program. Donors to the program receive bi-yearly updates on the children they are helping out. Spread the word, check out the site, and help make a difference in the lives of these kids. Also, while checking out the site, I highly recommend you check out the videos of some of the kids that are in the program like the one below, it’s tough not to donate afterwards. – William Armstrong
