e-Buddies of the Month
Each month, we will profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!
This month we are featuring Margaret and Denise!
Margaret is from Florida, and her e-Buddy Denise is from Connecticut. They have been matched since January of 2003, and have exchanged over 200 e-mails!
When asked what she enjoys most about being in e-Buddies, Margaret responds: “I enjoy the camaraderie that Denise and I share. Denise’s emails and phone calls brighten my days. Denise and I have become very good friends and are an important part of each others lives. I enjoy her stories, jokes and most importantly I enjoy having a dear friend to share good and bad news with.” Denise adds, “I have a friend to talk to, and I enjoy e-mailing my buddy.”
Denise thinks her friendship with Margaret is special because they both talk a lot, love animals, and are almost the same age. Denise was surprised to learn that she and Margaret share an interest in many of the same hobbies. Margaret agrees, and adds, “Our friendship is special because it is so genuine. We really enjoy many common interests and hobbies – and enjoy each others sense of humor. If Denise and I were neighbors or had gone to school together we would have become friends – thanks to e-Buddies we were able to do this despite the distance between our homes and families.”
Denise and Margaret are both surprised at how few people know about e-Buddies, so they both work hard to spread the word about the program, and encourage everyone they know to join! Both women are thrilled that e-Buddies has given them the opportunity to become friends. Denise believes her friendship with Margaret is so strong in part because “Margaret is a very friendly, funny, and happy person.” Margaret adds, “Thanks to Best Buddies and e-Buddies Denise and I have a very special friendship that has only grown stronger and stronger over the years we have been participating in the program.”
Congratulations to Denise and Margaret – e-Buddies of the Month for August, 2007!
