contentse-Buddy of the Month

By Scott Hammerstrom
e-Buddies Program Manager, Pennsylvania

This is a new feature of the e-Beat! We will profile an e-Buddy every month. If you would like to be profiled, please e-mail Scott Hammerstrom at ScottHammerstrom@bestbuddies.org.

This month we are featuring Cookie V and Stephanie!

Cookie V. loves getting emails from her e-Buddy Stephanie. Cookie says "Stephanie always makes me happy with her emails since she always knows what to say to me."

They have been emailing each other weekly for 2½ years. Stephanie says that even though she was never met her e-Buddy in person she considers her a friend. "It is difficult to establish and maintain a relationship exclusively online…but we've done it…and that's what makes us unique!"

When Cookie is not writing her e-Buddy she actively participates in the Special Olympics playing basketball. To help raise money for the team she took part of the Passion Plunge into the Atlantic Ocean on February 14th. And of course, Stephanie was very happy to sponsor her for this event.

Thanks Cookie and Stephanie for being such great e-Buddies.
