I signed up but I forgot the details of the project. Where do I go?

Please email us at MoBS@bigsunday.org if you lost your confirmation email. We’ll put you in touch with the right person.

I signed up but I need to change my RSVP. Who do I contact?

Please email the captain of the project to let them know of the change, whether you need to cancel your spot or you want to add some friends. You can also contact us at MoBS@bigsunday.org if you lost your confirmation.

Can I do A Month of Big Sundays activities with my entire youth group, extended family, or my Fortune 500 company?

Yes, absolutely. There are great projects for groups large and small. You can sign up for your group for any project you would like using the project RSVP links. If you do not see something that works for your group, please let us know as soon as possible and we’ll see how we can help you. Also, know that there may be other people, from outside your group, who will be working alongside you. To request information for a large group project, or to create a new project during A Month of Big Sundays, please email MoBS@bigsunday.org.

I'd love to help with A Month of Big Sundays, but I have a new baby (triplets, sullen teenager, out-of-town guests, elderly aunt). Is there anything for me to do?

Yep. During A Month of Big Sundays we have projects for all ages and all talents. The idea is that whoever you are, whatever you do, wherever you live, there is some way for you to help someone else.

Is it too late to add an A Month of Big Sundays project for my favorite charity?

Applications are available during the month of March each year. We will accept and receive applications up until the beginning of May 2017, but the ones we receive on time will receive priority for funding and support. The approved projects and schedule for A Month of Big Sundays will be posted to allow volunteers to sign up to participate. Please contact MoBS@bigsunday.org for more info.

Is it too late to sign up to help at my favorite activity during A Month of Big Sundays?

Maybe. Many of our projects limit the number of participants for reasons of space or effectiveness, so your first choice may already be filled, but there are lots of other great projects that could really use your help (and are really fun, too)

What if I just found you and it’s the day before A Month of Big Sundays? When does registration close?

We close registration on specific projects when we’ve reached the maximum number of volunteers needed for it. (Trust us: The worst problem a project can have is too many volunteers.) However, no matter how late you are, you’ll see projects on our website that still need volunteers through the end of May.

My six year-old wants to volunteer at “Rebuilding Together” during A Month of Big Sundays and he's very smart, but your description says he has to be 14-years-old. Can I bring him anyway?

No. When a project description lists an age limit it’s because the nonprofit requires us to do so for liability reasons, but don’t worry. There are plenty of age-appropriate projects for everyone.

Is it true that everyone gets a free T-shirt at projects during A Month of Big Sundays?

Yes.

So what do I have to pay for?

Nothing. One of the great things about Big Sunday is that it has always been free for all participants. It is completely underwritten by corporate and private donations, in-kind contributions and foundations grants. Volunteers are asked only for their time and talent — no money. But to keep it free for everyone, we’re always happy to accept donations, so click here if you’d like to make a tax-deductible gift to Big Sunday.

Does Big Sunday have any religious or political agenda?

Nope. We work for and with groups of all faiths and all political persuasions – and everyone is always welcome — but there is absolutely no religious or political agenda to any Big Sunday activity

What groups do you help?

Feel free to visit Who We Help, on our website. You’ll find a list of the many nonprofits we’ve worked with throughout the year. Most of these great groups offer volunteer opportunities all year long.

Volunteering over one month is great, but what about rest of the year?

We are proud to note that A Month of Big Sundays serves as a catalyst for many of our volunteers to continue to help our nonprofit partners throughout the year. But for some people, helping out just one day a year, whether it’s during A Month of Big Sundays, or some other time, is what they can do. And, for the record, we think that’s great, too
