Giving Thanks

You may recognize their faces from BBBSBA ad campaigns, but George and Julian are a model match in more ways than one. Last Thanksgiving, the two went to Dolores Park and asked people, “What are you most thankful for?”

Many responded, writing down things like family and pets. Some gave thanks for things one might otherwise take for granted, like food and warm clothing. Then, the responses—which were written on little turkey-hands provided by George and Julian—were collected and made into a holiday collage.

This project not only reminded people to take a moment and be thankful during this hectic holiday season, but it helped the sometimes-shy Julian gain confidence in public speaking. Big Brothers Big Sisters gives thanks this November for our wonderful matches like George and Julian. We think they both did a great job!
