Check out the e-Buddies Community!
Got the summertime blues because your e-Buddy is out of town? Looking for a way to become more connected to other e-Buddies participants? Check out the e-Buddies Community! Here are some of the great features you will find:
To get started, please visit:
- Connect with other e-Buddies participants through the e-Buddies Message Boards.
- Check on the status of your e-Buddies match, and find your e-Buddy's e-mail address.
- E-mail your e-Buddy from anywhere, even if you don't have access to your regular e-mail account!
- If your school or work computer has a firewall that won't allow you to check your personal e-mail, the “E-mail Buddy” tool can be a useful alternative for contacting your e-Buddy.
