In the latest news from Jimmy Beans HQ, we're proud to announce that Laura Zander (aka Jimmy!) is officially a board member for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada!
The Big Brothers Big Sisters' mission to help children realize their potential and build their futures is one that's near and dear to many of us here on the Team Beans.
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), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. They help develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Did you know every $1200 raised supports a match between a Big and a Little for an entire year?!
This got us inspired to do another raffle and see if we can raise enough money to support at least one match for 2024! And we'd love your help to achieve that (and maybe more!).
For the entire month of April, we'll be offering $5 digital raffle tickets for purchase with 100% of the proceeds going to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada.
And as a thank you for contributing, we're raffling off the ultimate gift for the maternal figure in your life (or yourself!) just in time for Mother's Day!
You can win a custom Yarn Bouquet plus you'll be one of the first to have your hands on a brand-new bag from della Q! The Maker's Mesh is half Tote, half Rucksack and made to be fully transparent so you can always grab a glimpse of your project while on the go!!!!
But wait...that's not all, we're also packing your Maker's Mesh Tote with Reno Rafter 7 :) . A truly local yarn we made last year with the University of Nevada, Reno.
What a prize, eh?!
Our raffle will have one winner who will receive a custom Yarn Bouquet and a brand new Maker's Mesh Tote from della Q filled with Reno Rafter 7, valued at over $500! You get to choose which color of bag you'd like if you win!
