Thanks to Cut & Run for their awesome work on the video, and to Venable LLP for making the introduction.

Every Thursday, Always at 10

Have you been to TM@10? It’s every Thursday morning at 10, at our offices on Melrose. We host a different service project and a friendly crowd, every week! Most weeks, we have someone from the nonprofit we’re helping to talk about their agency, and why your help is so important. We get a fun and lively crowd, too. Please join us, and you can add your vote to the current debate: Bagels or donuts? TM@10 is made possible by a generous donation from Dreamworks Animation. RSVP to rob@bigsunday.org.

Coming up:

  • February 26. Picture Frames for Hope Heals Hearts
  • March 5. PB&J sandwiches for My Friends Place

 

February is Canned Fruit & Veggies Month!

The End of the Month Club is collecting canned fruit & veggies this month. We need all items by Wednesday, February 25. If you’d like to host a collection or make a donation large or small, please contact Melanie or Paulette at endofthemonthclub@bigsunday.org. The End of the Month Club is made possible by a generous donation from Joshua L. and Lisa Z. Greer.

 

Thanks for being our Valentine!

Big Sunday’s 3rd Annual Valentine-Making Bingo-Playing Community Dinner was a huge success thanks to you! We were joined by hundreds of volunteers from all walks of life who made tons of valentines for seniors, shut-ins, veterans and others in need of a little TLC on Valentine’s Day. As always, we ate well, met some new friends and shared in a raucous game of bingo. Thank you to all who attended and the great spirit of community and generosity each and every guest brought to this fun annual event!

 

Have You Seen theARTlist?

Big Sunday is proud to unveil theARTlist, our new online listing of performances, screenings, exhibits, readings, openings and more. This large – and growing! – list is a great way to publicize your event. We will include any listing from individuals, groups, nonprofits or schools. The one rule: You have to have somehow, some way, been involved with some Big Sunday project. To add your listing, please contact theartlist@bigsunday.org.

 

Big Sunday was featured on KTLA Channel 5 Morning News!

Check out the absolutely fantastic coverage of our 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Stuffing event earlier today. Many thanks to Gayle Anderson, cameraman Dave Lopez and the entire KTLA Morning News crew for spending the morning with us and for their wonderful reporting.

Big Sunday Goes Viral

Did you see the great article about Big Sunday in Fast Company? It’s called Volunteerism Goes Viral, it’s really nice, and we hope you can check it out. Thanks!

 

Have you checked our theBIGlist lately?

Got stuff? Big Sunday has an easy way for you to dispose of items you no longer need! theBIGlist connects nonprofits and schools with local donors. It’s just gone through a major upgrade (thanks, Marilyn S. Broad Foundation!), and is bigger and busier than ever. The list has helped us find grateful new homes for items that range from furniture and appliances to electronics, baby strollers/cribs, concert tickets and even pets. Donations are tax-deductible, and recipients can connect directly with donors to coordinate item pick-up! Check out theBIGlist HERE. Questions? Contact nick@bigsunday.org.

Quotes

Our family had a great time volunteering at the Orange County Islamic Center! We have been participating in Big Sunday since 2005 and we love it. This is always a great way to spend quality time as a family and teach kids our kids’ valuable and meaningful ways to give to others. Our goal is to try and participate throughout the year instead of on one weekend. Thank you for allowing us to be of service.
