Once chosen, the pairs will be interviewed by the Big & Mini team about their experiences in Big & Mini, quarantine, and life in general! Email us at if you’d like to be featured on the website!

Group Activities:

On June 2nd, the Big & Mini virtually visited the retirement home of Village On The Park Onion Creek and helped brighten the day of the residents there! On June 9th, we have another virtual visit planned! Should be a lot of fun!
