Little moments, big magic

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

Local leaders were invited to become charter members of the Little Moments, Big Magic Society, to support the Northern New Mexico Big Brothers Big Sisters organization at a luncheon Wednesday at the Hilltop House Hotel. As people filed in, they were taken to their tables by the Littles: kids who have been matched with adults through the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program.As people dined, they were both entertained and moved by stories from adults and kids who have participated in the program. Their heartfelt stories made the point that, although the focus of the group is on the kids, it’s hard to tell who benefits more from the relationships facilitated by the nonprofit organization, which has 800 matches this year.The northern New Mexico group’s Chief Executive Officer Andrea Maril told the story of the original mentoring experience she had, working with a young woman named Belinda, whom she met in 1978.“The person who taught me the power of mentoring was Belinda,” Maril said. “Who would have thought that those few hours I spent listening and cheerleading would have led to life-long, life-changing friendship for both of us?”Big Brothers Big Sisters organization is well established in northern New Mexico, having served Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, Los Alamos and Taos counties for several years.
