Years ago, we started our annual Big Sunday Holiday List with exactly one project. So many people wanted to help that this past year our holiday list included more than 300 ways to give back and pitch in at the holidays.

So, this year we decided to introduce The 1st Annual Big Sunday Summer List.

As always, we have projects helping all kinds of people, in all kinds of ways, all over the Southland. And, as always, whoever you are, whatever you do (and whatever your age!) there is somebody who could use your help.

We will update this list weekly through August 1 (at least), so please keep checking back. If you’ve taken on or completed one of these projects, please email info@bigsunday.org and let us know – that way, we can thank you and direct other people to projects that still need their help!

Please note that we do not sponsor most of the summer projects on this list. Rather, we put them out to the Big Sunday community and hope someone sees it who wants to help. If it’s anything like our holiday list, many people will! Of course, feel free to forward, post, copy, print and tweet it wherever you think there are nice people who might want to help someone else.

Thanks, as always, for your great generosity of time, talent, spirit and stuff. At Big Sunday, we’re always amazed and moved by how generous so many people can be. Oh, and one more thing – if you enjoy helping during the summer, please remember that Big Sunday has all kinds of great ways to give back throughout the year. (You can’t believe how busy the fall will be!) We’d love your help. Feel free to check us out at www.bigsunday.org or contact info@bigsunday.org to see how you can get involved.
