Jamie Foxx Announces Biggest Role Ever!
Oscar Award Winning Actor Jamie Foxx celebrates the actor’s newest and biggest role ever — spokesperson for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
“Jamie Foxx is very impressed by BBBS’ proven mentoring services and our commitment to helping children in urban communities,” says the President and CEO of BBBS-NCA. “His efforts to recruit culturally diverse men will be invaluable to our mission. He has not forgotten his humble upbringing in Texas where he was raised by his grandmother.” Foxx has also benefited from numerous mentors, including coaches, friends and industry professionals.
“Kids need strong mentors,” says Foxx. “Big Brothers Big Sisters carefully screens volunteers for long-term mentoring with kids facing adversity. Mentees improve in school, their behavior and their self-esteem.”
Foxx will work with Washington business leaders and national celebrities to help raise needed funding so that the organization can grow to serve more children. He will also promote Big Brothers Big Sisters in public service announcements and special appearances.
Many children in our Washington, DC area, primarily boys, are on Big Brothers Big Sisters “waiting to be matched” lists.
Big Brothers Big Sisters needs more volunteer mentors, particularly men of color, and additional financial support for sufficient staffing to match the kids in safe, long-term mentoring matches.
“With more volunteers — especially men — and more donations, every Little who needs a Big could have one,” stated Foxx.
