October reminds me of Christopher Columbus and the spirit of adventure he possessed. Embarking on a new friendship requires a sense of adventure, too, as well as a willingness to discover a new person and, in so doing, discover new parts of ourselves.
It is fitting, then, that Best Buddies announced the creation of e-Buddies six years ago this month. Since then, thousands of members have found the joy of friendship through e-mail, and I am glad and grateful to have you as one of our members.
Best Buddies around the world is in full swing now, with chapter activities taking place and local and national events poised to raise the funds we need to support our work. Want to discover more about Best Buddies? Visit www.bestbuddies.org to find out more about what programs we offer in your area of the world.
Thank you for being part of Best Buddies!
The e-Beat is published online monthly at www.ebuddies.org.
