Latino Bigs has had a standing partnership with a fantastic and dedicated group of bloggers called the Latina Mom Bloggers. They routinely post about all sorts of issues specific to the Latino community, so a partnership with LatinoBigs.org is a natural fit. Heading into the holiday season, a handful of the bloggers took the time to write some articles on the importance of mentoring, and how the support of mentoring programs like those offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters can be of true benefit to the Latino community.Rita Hernandez
