What an amazing month! When we decided to move from Big Sunday Weekend to A Month of Big Sundays, we weren’t sure how it was going to work. And lots of people thought we might be…misguided. But we are thrilled to say that May, 2016 was a rip-roaring success for Big Sunday. We had all kinds of special events going on every single day of the month, and thousands and thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds working together to make our communities cleaner, prettier, healthier, safer, and friendlier.
At Big Sunday, we connect people through helping. And in May we were blown away by friends new and old working together, whether it was beautifying scores of schools; hosting hundreds of people at special adventures; donating close to 100,000 items (yep, 100K – food, clothes, books, furniture, sporting goods and more); or supporting and building up Big Sunday’s ongoing programs such as TM@10, theBIGlist, thePROBOlist, and The Big Sunday Emergency Fund in all kinds of ways.
A million thanks to everyone who made this memorable month possible.
By the way: Please check out some of the many awesome photos from A Month of Big Sundays. Or, as we like to call it, MoBS. Special thanks to these awesome photographers, too: Bill Devlin, Charlie Hess, Jack Levinson, Joel Lipton, Bob Primes, and Ann Summa.
Of course, there will be lots more going on at Big Sunday, all summer long. We hope to see you soon!
Thanks again from all of us at Big Sunday,
David, Berenice, Rob, Ashannti, Beenish, and David
