We’ve all felt long moments of stress and isolation over the last two years, but it’s been particularly hard on youth. In a time meant for exploration, discovery and social development, children and teens have been cut off from friends, classmates and those who understand them best. For youth living in unstable or unsupportive homes, spending extra time inside only added to pandemic stress.
Through it all, Big Brothers Big Sisters kept building connections between ‘Bigs’ and ‘Littles’ across BC. They used video conferencing and other virtual platforms to help mentors and mentees get together. They came up with creative ways to schedule outdoor meet-ups where youth could feel safe and supported. Now they’re celebrating the return of in-person school programs and investing in new mentorship matches.
To help grow these programs and continue supporting youth across BC, 11 Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies are coming together to host The Big BC Lotto. Buy your tickets now for a chance to win half the jackpot in a classic 50/50 draw!

“We serve over 7000 youth across the province, and the funds raised from the Big BC Lotto will directly support matching more Bigs and Littles,” says Andrée Nash, Events Officers for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Vancouver. “This is the third time since the spring of 2021 that all 11 agencies have come together for a 50/50 lottery, and each one has been a great success.”
The 11 agencies know they’re #BiggerTogether, and that connecting their fundraising efforts will help connect more isolated youth with the love and support they deserve. Will you connect with the cause, to help your community and have a chance to win big?
