Rich & Kameron
Kameron and Rich have been matched since December 2011 in the Community-Based program. This match is the perfect example of how Bigs and Littles can influence one another.
When asked what Kameron likes best about having Rich as a Big Brother, he explained that Rich is REALLY funny, caring and most of all, he cares about spending time with him. Kameron said he has many favorite activities that he and Rich have done together. His top favorites have been fishing, golfing, and shopping at Easton Mall. Kameron said that Rich has taught him to be more outgoing and not let the “little” things in life get him down. Also, he said that Rich has taught him many funny jokes that make people laugh and he enjoys that. Kameron said Rich has shown him another side to life that can be fun, and he never knew that existed.
Rich had lots of good things to say about Kameron as well. Rich believes the best thing about having Kameron as his Little Brother is getting to spend quality time with him. He said, “I wanted to volunteer for Big Brothers Big Sisters to be able to give something back to the incredible community we already have. After spending so much time with Kameron, I have definitely received much more than I could ever hope to give.” Rich’s favorite activity to do with Kameron is “Just Hanging Out.” While the two of them have attended a model airplane show, gone fishing, hiking, and golfing, simply enjoying each other’s company has been his favorite.
The two of them refer to their outings as “Kameron and Rich Adventures.” When asked what Rich likes best about Kameron, he stated, “his patience and understanding.” Rich explained, “At the end of a long week or a stressful day, Kameron is an instant stress reliever through his honest acceptance of others.” He said Kameron is so easy to talk to and even more fun to laugh with. Rich stated having a Little Brother, like Kameron, helps reinforce the important things in life. “Just being able to hang out and forget about deadlines reminds me to simply enjoy the moment, and those who m we have been blessed enough to enjoy those precious moments with.”
Congratulations Rich and Kameron!
