BIG & LITTLE STORY
Enjoying fresh powder on the slopes is a favorite for many Montanans. Devon was eager to get in on the fun and asked his Big Brother Clay to teach him how to snowboard. Clay took Devon on the Magic Carpet at Whitefish Mountain Resort but he struggled to find balance on the board.
Clay suggested they switch to skiing and was determined to defend his Little's potential by helping Devon reach his goals. Devon was a natural the moment he put on a pair of skis. Practicing nearly every weekend helped him develop skill and gain the confidence needed to thrive on the mountain. It wasn't long before Devon braved going down Black Diamond and did so with success!

BIG & LITTLE STORY
Big Sister Carrie Power and Lexi are a new-ish match. These two initially bonded over a mutual appreciation for french fries and ice cream but their friendship now thrives on enjoying each other's company and finding the other hilarious. After just 2-months they are finishing each other's sentences.
One summer day they decided to spend the whole day together. Their day began enjoying two scoops on the rooftop of Sweet Peaks Ice Cream and then ventured over to Pin & Cue for some bowling and arcade games and lunch. Later they arrived at Stumptown Art Studio for Big Art Little Art with huge smiles and energy.
Lexi is a gifted artist and is able to express her creativity in various forms, even creating bracelets that same morning to wear throughout the day. She decided to paint a rainbow-colored ceramic fish and meticulously selected the right colors and then carefully applied each stroke of paint. The result was incredible! She questioned whether to paint a second fish but Carrie was quick to encourage her to paint however many she wanted. Carrie helps Lexi realize her potential by frequently building her up and supporting her interests. Whether they are at the dog park or at Imagine IF Libraries or just enjoying lunch, Carrie makes sure Lexi knows she is talented, special, and a fun Little Sister.
Your gift matters and helps kids like Lexi realize their potential and believe they are "more than cool enough."
