For several years now, I've taken photos of Big and Little Brothers and Sisters for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands. All the people I've met have been so inspiring, and I love seeing all the different types of people who participate in the program.
If you've ever even considered taking part, I encourage you to get some information. My husband has been with his Little for over five years now. BBBS are in particular need of men to be Big Brothers, so support that man in your life to give back to a kid in Omaha.
Side note: If you're interested, here's a link to their website. (The slideshow on the homepage are all photos I took; they dark haired guy sitting on a bench in a blue shirt is very special to me. :) )
AAAAAAnyway, the reason for this post is to give myself some props, if I may. A photo I took during one of our sessions was submitted to a contest held by Giving USA. The winning photos were used in the 2014 Report -- and one I took is featured! It's the second page of the document below. I was just so pleased to see it there, and wanted to tell the world! :)
