We hope everyone enjoyed the last few weeks of the warm weather! It’s finally fall and we are very excited about the BIGVISION developments that have taken place since our last newsletter.

In September, we hosted a viewing party of an online presentation at the White House in celebration of National Recovery Month. The Office of National Drug Control Policy hosted the online event with a focus on youth in recovery. Christina Huffington, daughter of The Huffington Post co-founder, Arianna Huffington, moderated a panel of guest speakers who discussed their time in recovery and answered questions that had been tweeted to them earlier that day. The panel shared some very moving stories that inspired our own discussion among our BIGVISION guests. We discussed some of the major issues facing youth in recovery and told our own stories relating to these issues. Hearing everyone discuss their personal journeys, and how hard they are working towards sobriety, was uplifting and emotional.

Back by popular demand, this month we hosted our second Night of Knitting with knitting expert Laurie Kimmelstiel. Some learned new skills while others enhanced their hand warmers from last month, which will be useful as the colder weather quickly approaches! It was a wonderful night and we learned that knitting is not only fun but very therapeutic.

We are proud to announce that BIGVISION is officially a tax-exempt nonprofit organization! We have been granted 501(c)(3) status by the IRS which will allow for our continued growth as an organization. The future of BIGVISION is now, and we look forward to hosting new and exciting events in the months and years to come.  We launched the BIGVISION website, and if you haven’t already, please visit www.bigvision.nyc. We would like to thank everyone that has helped us achieve all of our incredible milestones thus far. Each and every one of you has played an important role in our evolution.

We thank you for your continued support for BIGVISION. Your help is already making a difference in those striving to live happy, healthy and substance-free lives.

Best,
Eve Goldberg and the BIGVISION Family
