Recruitosphere contributor, innovative social media provacateur, Chris Hoyt, is always keeping his eye out for bringing the fun to the dynamic and in this case he doesn’t surprise. He saw a good cause, he reached out within the community and directly and we respond in the afirmative to the cause and to his passion for doing the “right thing.”

The Good Cause: Bowl For Kids’ Sake

  • Bowl For Kids’ Sake is the largest annual fundraising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters, providing funds to offer positive mentoring relationships for thousands of kids in our communities. Since 1985, this event has cumulatively raised more than $2.8 million dollars to help serve our local kids.
  • Chris Hoyt’s Goal: Raising $2,500 for the event through social networks with a deadline of March 6th – The event is on Saturday March 7th in Dallas, TX.
  • Donations can be made through TipJoy as well as PayPal – direct donations are also welcome and need only contact me directly for arrangements. (if using TipJoy they can simply tweet this to donate $5 while simultaneously telling their followers about the event: p $5 @RGBowl4Kids09 to help our cause using @tipjoy )
  • Fun video will be produced at the event on March 7th of everyone participating and to say thanks to those that donated online to help make it possible.
  • About Big Brothers Big Sisters

    It is the oldest, largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the United States. We have been the leader in one-to-one youth service for more than a century, developing positive relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people.

    National research has shown the positive relationships between youth and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. Little Brothers and Sisters are:

    * More confident in their schoolwork performance
    * Able to get along better with their families
    * 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
    * 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
