Even back then, by her mother’s side, Anne understood that some kids are less fortunate than others. And, unlike Anne’s own experiences growing up, many children sadly lacked the necessary parental support, unconditional love, and consistent guidance from a trusted adult, they so deserve.

Make a Resolution that Ripples: Become A Big

By | Ripple Stories | No Comments

Every new year, you may be filled with resolutions to become a better person. One resolution we at the Nerium Ripple Foundation can suggest is to become a “Big,” or mentor, for non-profit organization Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and January happens to be National Mentoring Month. In the past, we’ve featured Ripple Stories in which the people involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters mention a sense of fulfillment that comes from knowing that they’re making a difference in someone else’s life. Still, you may be on the fence about getting involved as a Big. We understand! It’s a big commitment.
