Dear Friends,

Happy Best Buddies Month! March is a busy and exciting month in the Best Buddies world.

For starters, the annual e-Buddies Friend-A-Thon fundraising event is now in progress. The Friend-A-Thon gives e-Buddies participants and supporters a chance to help raise funds to help secure the future of e-Buddies. The Friend-A-Thon runs from March 1st to March 31st. To find out more, please visit:

http://www.ebuddies.org/friendathon/

All contributions or any size are much needed and appreciated. We hope to have your support!

In other Best Buddies Month news:

  • 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 upcoming in your area, please visit:

    http://www.r-word.org/

  • As noted in this month's Best Buddies Spotlight, be sure to check with your local Best Buddies office to see if there will be a Best Buddies Day event near you:

  • Best Buddies has entered for a chance to win a $250,000 grant from Pepsi, which will allow us to send more participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities to our annual Leadership Conference this summer. To receive this grant, we need your vote! To vote for us, please visit:

    You can vote once a day, every day, for the month of March!

Be sure to check out this month's Update from the Field - this month, we are featuring one of our newest Best Buddies offices, Best Buddies Kentucky! We are also featuring a great new e-Buddies match in this month's e-Buddies of the Month profile.

Thank you for supporting Best Buddies and e-Buddies. We're so happy to have you on board. Talk to you next month!

Take care,
