Rosie Perez and Wendy Williams Give Shoutout to Big Brothers Big Sisters!

In a recent episode of the Wendy Williams Show, Williams and special guest, actress Rosie Perez, were discussing Perez's recent book. In the course of their conversation, Perez mentioned being inspired by hearing Williams mentioning having been a Big Sister on a radio show. As a child, Perez was a ward of the state of New York. She related how, with the guidance of a volunteer mentor, she found a brighter side to life. Both Williams and Perez praised Big Brothers Big Sisters for our work, providing mentors to children who face adversity.
