To all of our merry-making partners - 


YOU DID IT! You helped us reach our $5,000 goal by giving generously to our Little Bruin Wishes campaign. As of 9:45 this morning, over 82+ donors have given a combined $5,205 in hopes of making the holidays a little brighter for members of our UCLA community. Thanks to you, the Students with Dependents program at UCLA will be able to provide each and every qualifying family with at least one gift per person. All in all, we are pleased to say that we will be able to provide gifts for over 300 members of the UCLA community, including the parenting students themselves!


Your generosity will make a world of difference this holiday season by allowing UCLA parenting students to enjoy the holiday instead of stressing over it. We can't wait to share even more updates with you in the coming weeks as our shopping, wrapping, and gift distribution begins. 


You've already done so much just by donating to the Little Bruin Wishes campaign, but there is one more way that you could help us make Little Bruin Wishes even better, and that's by sharing our Sponsor-a-Family page with your friends and networks. Although we've secured enough gifts from donors like you to ensure that everyone gets at least something, we still encourage folks to sponsor an entire family this holiday season. This way, your gift will stretch just a little bit further, and even more support can be provided to our parenting student community. 


You can find the sponsorship page here:


THANK YOU again for your incredible support of the Little Bruin Wishes campaign this year. We truly wouldn't have been able to accomplish our goals without you, and we are so grateful to have you as a partner. You'll be hearing from us again soon. 




The Little Bruin Wishes Team 

NEARLY 50% to GOAL!!!

November 17, 2017


It's only been a few days since our campaign launched, and WOW - the staff of the Bruin Resource Center is in awe of the support and reception our crowdfunding campaign has received so far. Forty donors have supported our campaign as of this morning, and we're already at 44% toward our goal with 19 days left. THANK YOU to everyone who has already made a contribution!  

You've already done so much just by supporting Little Bruin Wishes, but please continue to share our campaign far and wide with your friends, family, and coworkers. With Thanksgiving and the Holidays right around the corner, we think you'll be able to find plenty of ways to talk about Little Bruin Wishes while gathering around tables and shopping with others.  

In the meantime, we thought we’d share a message from the Students with Dependents Program Director, Jean Libby. (Click the READ UPDATE link below)

Safe travels if you’re hitting the road next week. We’ll have more updates for you soon!
