Letter from the Director Best Buddies Spotlight Conversation Starters e-Buddies in Action! Update from the Field


Dear Friends,

Happy February! Is January already over? 2010 is already flying by! It will be March before we know it.

You may notice a few differences in this month's e-Beat. For 2010, we will be rotating articles more regularly, in order to provide you with new content that you may not have seen before.

This month, we are thrilled to launch a new e-Beat feature - Update from the Field highlights stories and events from Best Buddies offices from across the United States and abroad. This month, we hear from Best Buddies Nevada!

By participating in e-Buddies, you are a part of Best Buddies' global movement. Check out this month's Best Buddies Spotlight to learn more about some of the wonderful Best Buddies programs from around the world. Check out this month's e-Buddies in Action to hear from some of your e-Buddies peers - this month, we are featuring e-Buddies participants from Bloomington, CA.

Finally, as some of you may already know, March is Best Buddies Month. We're still a month away, but here is a quick heads up on some upcoming happenings to keep an eye on:

  • March 3, 2010 is the official Spread the Word to End the Word day. Best Buddies, Special Olympics, and supporters from around the world are raising awareness in an effort to promote the use of more respectful language by challenging the use of the R-word. To take the R-word pledge, and to see if there are any Spread the Word events in your area, please visit

  • To celebrate Best Buddies Month, many of our offices and chapters from around the world will be holding Best Buddies Day events in their local communities. Check with your local Best Buddies office to see if there will be a Best Buddies Day event near you:
Talk to you next month!

Take care,
Bill Maurer
