With all that’s going on in Baltimore, it’s so dope to see the positivity shining throughout. The Baltimore chapter of ‘Big Brothers Big Sisters of America’ has received a staggering 3,000 percent increase in mentor applicants in just a few days! This surge, the organization said, is the biggest in their entire history!

“To have people reach out and say, ‘I want to make a commitment for the next year of my life spending every week with a young man or woman,’ is blowing my mind actually,” President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake, Terry Hickey, told NBC News.

The organization has received over 500 mentor inquiries in the past few days, compared to the usual four to five inquiries a day.

“I was worried people would see the images on TV of young people looting… you don’t know how people are going to react to the image of young teens running through the streets,” Hickey said. “But people are having their own epiphany, they are saying, ‘It just dawned on me that by being an adult in one kid’s life I can make a real difference.’”
