Big Brothers Big Sisters: Meet Jahnah, a Little Girl Waiting for a Big Sister

image_pdfimage_print

bbbsMeet Jahnah, an 11 year old Caribbean-American female, who lives in a single-parent home with her mother, 2 sisters and 2 brothers in Clearwater.  Jahnah’s biological father currently lives in Georgia and maintains no contact with his children. In fact, her mother tells us that when his children call or text they often receive no reply from him.  Growing up in a household with 4 siblings can be tough, but thankfully Jahnah has formed a solid relationship with her mother and will soon have a Big Sister to help guide her down the right path in life.

The family has been living in a Homeless Emergency Project (HEP) permanent housing unit since July of 2013. Not only did the children need to adjust to a new home environment after their move to HEP, they had to change schools as well.

We asked Jahnah what she thought a Big Sister was, and she replied, “Someone who can take care of me, help me when I need something and teach me new things… but I want to let them know that my house has a lot of noise and can be messy!”

According to Jahnah’s mother, all of her teacher’s love her at school. Her favorite subject is math, although she feels she could benefit from assistance with science. Jahnah dreams of going to college and owning her own jewelry making business. She loves anything that has to do with girl power and crystals, but also enjoys soccer, singing, dancing, painting her nails and crocheting.  She enjoys outdoor activities over indoor and would rather participate than watch.

Jahnah’s three wishes are to have a password journal, lots of nail polish, and to do things that will make her mom happy.

There are over 150 children just like Jahnah waiting for a Big Sister, Big Brother or Big Couple. When you become a Big, you are helping a child become more confident, thrive academically and make good decisions.

We urge you to pick up the phone and learn more about what it means to be a volunteer in our mentoring program. Call us today at 727.518.8860 or visit our website to learn more www.bbbspc.org.

Lets not forget what this day is about, the Charities. This year it’s not the champagne and the big hats that has the committee excited but rather the charities. Adding to the uniqueness of the event this year, the players won’t just be playing for a good cause but for children.

The slogan Chukkers for Children has caught fire among the planning committee.  With this being the third year it is very special that all the charities share a common mission surrounding children. The unique idea to combine philanthropy and polo came about three years ago with that thought that money could be raised locally and redistributed locally. What makes this event different is the money raised provides something a little different but just as important as the previous years. This year’s event will provide comfort, mentors and dreams come true.  It is a remarkable opportunity that the community can come together to make these things possible for the children of Tampa Bay.

As it is the week of the event we wanted to take some time recognize the reason for the event and the amazing job that our three benefiting charities do. The Children’s Cancer Center, Children’s Dream Fund and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas bring such joy to children in different ways every day and that is a true gift. We couldn’t be happier to raise money on Saturday for these charities and can’t wait to see what they are able to do with it. Thank you to all our sponsors who are making this day possible for the children!

Its not too late to get your tickets, remember all proceeds go to our charities and every penny counts! For more information visit our site http://charitypoloclassic.com/tickets.

About The Children’s Cancer Center:

Helping children and families cope. That is the mission of the Children’s Cancer Center, a local non-profit organization dedicated to serving Tampa Bay families of children with cancer or chronic blood disorders such as Sickle Cell Anemia. “When a child is diagnosed, the whole family is diagnosed,” explains Children’s Cancer Center C.O.O., Patty O’Leary. “Our mission is to provide these children and their families with the educational, emotional and financial relief necessary to cope with the illnesses which threaten to tear their lives apart.”

About Big Brothers Big Sisters:

For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters live in single-parent and low-income families, or households where a parent is incarcerated. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”). Providing a system of ongoing evaluation and support, Big Brothers Big Sisters is proven by independent studies to help families by improving the odds that Littles will perform better in school and avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their parents and others. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County serves Pinellas, Hernando and Citrus Counties and nearly 1,500 children a year.

About The Children’s Dream Fund:

The Children’s Dream Fund was founded in 1981 with the single purpose of fulfilling dreams for children ages 3-18 who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, and who live in West Central Florida. Dreams are referred to us by doctors, nurses, Child Life and Social Workers, friends, families and other patients. Every child deserves hope and a dream and our goal is to continue to make those dreams come true. Our desire is to grant every eligible child’s dream and no dream has ever been refused, except those involving motorized vehicles and firearms.
