Starbucks Appreciation Days

As a thank you to the volunteers who inspire their Littles all year long, Starbucks is offering all active Bigs a FREE all (12 fl. oz.) beverage of their choice each Friday in January. Present your BBBSCI volunteer ID card or your promotional postcard at participating Central Indiana Starbucks stores to receive your free tall beverage (12 fl. oz.) beverage on January 3, 10, 17, 24, & 31.. Only "stand alone" Starbucks stores are participating in the promotion. Starbucks counters inside retail stores (like Meijer and Target), airports, hotels, etc. are not participating in this promotion. Click here for a list of participating stores in Central Indiana. 

50 Kids in 31 days

January is National Mentoring Month and to celebrate, we’re collecting short videos of our Bigs talking about why their Little is great for a social media campaign called “50 Kids in 31 Days”. This will help the community see what makes our kids amazing and raise awareness of our mission to defend, ignite, and empower potential. Here's how you can participate!

  1. Record a short video of yourself (no longer than 20 seconds) on your cell phone explaining why your Little is great. Please tell us what makes your Little special & unique.
  2. Make sure you mention your Little’s name or film the video as if you’re talking to your Little (“My Little is Katie and she is ….” Or, “Hey, Katie – I want you to know that …”)
  3. Send your video to Bridget at or text them to her at 317-690-4963.
  4. We will post these on BBBSCI social every day in January with the hashtag #CelebratePotential.
    • Make sure you post your story to your social media & share our posts on your page to raise awareness of BBBS and our wonderful Littles!
