More than just presents.

It’s not just presents under a tree. In the month leading up to the winter break many kids struggle in anticipation of what their holiday break is going to look like; two weeks home with last year’s winter clothing, no brightly wrapped gifts with their name scrolled on them, and no happy memories to share when they return to school. Even worse, they dread hearing how great the holidays were for their friends when they do go back to school. This destroys their self-confidence and self-worth, sometimes making school a place of shame rather than a safe haven. 


The Big Give changes that. Many of our Big Give kids’ teachers report back that their students come back to school with swagger, increased self-confidence, and a noticeable difference in their attitude and effort in school. The kids finally feel like they fit in and have something to share! They are more socially, personally and academically successful.
