Jackson is seven and lives with his mom and little sister. He enjoys playing on a baseball team and says he is also good at soccer, tennis and track. When Jackson grows up, he wants to be a police officer and he knows that if he works hard in school, he can achieve that goal. He is a big fan of superheroes, particularly Batman and Spiderman. If he could have three wishes, Jackson said he’d like a dog, a cat and a pet fish.

By becoming a Big Pal, you’ll get the chance to be a kid again by mentoring a Little Pal like Jackson. Big and Little Pals spend few hours each week together doing normal, everyday activities like playing catch or just hanging out. These little moments can turn into life-changing, impactful friendships.
