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 Valerie and Laura!

Friendships can be formed in so many different ways and one thing that e-Buddies allows participants to do is make a new friend with a person that they may never have met if it wasn't for the program. Valerie and Laura both became fast friends through e-Buddies and love participating because of it. They have now been matched for over a year.

They look forward to receiving e-mails from each other. Valerie and Laura love to talk about their friends, family, jobs, and even their weekend plans. They make a point to keep in contact with each other often. As Valerie puts it, "Laura is really good about returning my e-mails and maintaining our friendship. I know that she has a busy schedule, but the fact that she takes the time to e-mail me means a lot to me."

When asked about what makes her e-Buddies friendship so special Valerie said, "What makes an e-Buddy relationship so unique is that despite the physical distance between us with her in TN and me in NY, we still can have a friendship. It's a different kind of friendship than one with a friend that you see everyday. It's like having a pen pal and finding out about someone else's life through their eyes instead of seeing their life first hand in person."

Valerie expressed how she has learned so much from her friendship with Laura and her participation with e-Buddies. "It's a great program. I love e-Buddies. Something like an e-mail has a tremendous impact more than I realized on who I am as a person and how much I take certain things for granted."

Congratulations to Valerie and Laura our e-Buddies of the Month for July!
