Vancouver, BC, January 20, 2014 – With their waitlist for Big Brothers currently totaling 64 and growing daily, Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver regards the waitlist as a monster which they are trying to shrink via a social media campaign.
With each share and like on Facebook, the cartoon monster shrinks, figuratively representing how the public spreading the word helps recruit more volunteers. Volunteers are needed for each of the three adult programs with a particularly high need in Surrey, the Tri-Cities and North Vancouver. In Surrey, for example, boys are waiting nearly two years to be matched with Big Brothers.

About Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver
Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver helps boys aged 7 – 14 who have limited to no contact with their fathers and are, as a result, considered at-risk to not reach their full potential. Matching them with positive adult male role models, the charity sees compelling impacts on boys who develop more confidence, perform better academically and are less likely to succumb to peer pressure. One in four local children is raised without an active father.
