Welcome to Big Sunday!
Our mission is to build community through community service. We believe that everyone has some way that they can help somebody else.
Big Sunday Weekend 2013 was fantastic. We're going through thousands and thousands of photos, videos and testimonials. We're hoping to start posting them next week. We're also getting all the fun facts and figures about the weekend together! In the meantime, feel free to post your photos on Facebook.
Thanks for asking! May's End of the Month Club was a great success. We collected more than 600 jars of peanut butter and jelly for SOVA. Many thanks to the amazing Wilshire Warriors Baseball League for their awesome collection, not to mention the Adconion Media Group for giving us a head start. June is Pasta 'n Sauce Month. If you'd like to help, please contact email@example.com.
Um, no. Please feel free to make a much-appreciated donation, in any amount, by clicking on the "Donate" button on the top left-hand corner of this page.
No worries! We work with all kinds of schools and nonprofits throughout the year who'd probably love what you have. We take all kinds of news and gently-used (please!) items. Our theBIGlist is a popular way for nonprofits to get all kinds of much-needed and appreciated items. (Please see the next item.)
theBIGlist is our online wish list for people who have things they want to donate, and the nonprofits who need them. Over the past year we've found great new homes at grateful schools, group homes and other nonprofits for everything from furniture to laptops to Hollywood Bowl tickets to Christmas trees. You can click to the list by clicking the icon in the right hand column. If you have something to donate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you'd like to advertise on theBIGlist, please let us know that, too. It's not expensive, and it's a great way to support a wonderful cause. Just last week we gave away a beautiful piano (thanks, Alexis!) to the Amity Foundation in Long Beach, and two great copiers and tons of office furniture to No Limits for Deaf and Hearing Impaired Kids and Charlie Company in Bellflower. Thanks to ASK Financial for their great donation!
March's Monthly Off Melrose event was so successful, that we're going off Melrose for June's event, too. Join us as we join the great folks at City Lites for their 10th Annual Health and Wellness Festival on June 1. There is tons for people to do, and Big Sunday is happy to be working with them, and Crown Limo to bring one of our Chill Out Expresses -- and a bunch of volunteers -- over to help. Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CityLitesInc . We're very excited to be joining them for this great event, and hope you can, too. Everyone is welcome. Want to help? Contact email@example.com.
Many thanks to our friends at Arrowhead Water, who not only provided tons (literally) of water for participants on Big Sunday Weekend, but throughout the year, too. The wonderful folks at Tichenor & Thorp Architects have made an extremely generous "Big Sunday Eve" donation, for which we're extremely grateful. Our pals at Paramount Pictures topped off their hard work on Viacom's Community Service Day by hosting a very special lemonade stand that raised more than $1800 to help Big Sunday! And welcome to Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors for their very generous donation.
Are you an artist? Do you enjoy the arts? Do you support the arts? Big Sunday gets frequent - constant! - requests to let those in the Big Sunday community know about art events. In September, in the tradition of theBIGlist, we'll be introducing theARTlist, a special section of our website devoted to performances, exhibits, screenings, readings and other art events. We'll list your event, provided you have someone helped out at another Big Sunday event. Keep watching this space for more information. Interested in supporting theARTlist? Join our other sponsors today. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Is your company looking to do a community service day? Big Sunday is now available for hire to plan your event, large or small. Our corporate days of service are unusual -- we just had a great day of holiday decorating and cheer with a corporate group at the Venice Family Clinic -- and our goal is to make them meaningful, impactful and, of course, fun. Click here to learn more about Corporate Days of Service program.
No kid should wake up in a hospital. But this morning, some kid at Children’s Hospital is going to wake up knowing that there is a community that cares. And that will make all the difference. Thank you all for making our Big Sunday a day of making a big difference in the lives of kids.
