SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES

Sibos Dream Big! partnership

Empowering girls and young women through sports and recreation

Every year, Sibos supports community initiatives as part of its sustainability strategy, and for 2020 we’re partnering with Dream Big! in Boston. This charity empowers girls and young women from low-income situations through sports and physical activities that contribute to their health, education and overall wellbeing. Their work is more important than ever this year, when many children have struggled to stay active during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Dream Big! Challenge supported by the Sibos community

We’re launching The Dream Big! Challenge supported by the Sibos community and are calling on you for support. Through donations from Sibos and our community, we are aiming to raise enough money to buy 100 pairs of sneakers, 100 basketballs and 100 uniform kits.

Please help Dream Big! and the children they support by making a small donation. You can donate from as little as $10. With $30 Dream Big! can purchase a basketball, $40 a uniform kit and $50 a pair of sneakers. Every donation is appreciated and by working together we can make a real difference to the lives of girls and young women from economically disadvantaged communities. The work of Dream Big! is invaluable to keep these young people active and to protect their physical and mental wellbeing.

If you prefer to donate direct you can also send a cheque payable to ‘Dream Big!’ to Dream Big!, P.O Box 550245, Waltham MA 02455, USA.
