On May 17th, we hit a milestone – for the first time, over 200 e-mails were exchanged by e-Buddies members in one day! These positive messages represent the best of e-Buddies. Each of the 202 e-mails sent that day contain the words and feelings that create the friendships that truly are changing the world for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
We at e-Buddies headquarters have been busy sending out roster checks to schools and agencies, and, at this writing over 50% of them have responded. While many members are able to continue their friendship during the summer, others are not. If you need to suspend your match, please do so by using our easy suspension feature at our online community. That way, we at e-Buddies will be notified, and so will your e-Buddy.
Thank you so much for believing in Best Buddies! Hope you have a wonderful summer.
Vice President, e-Buddies
