Letter from the Director Best Buddies Spotlight e-Buddies of the Month Technology Corner Update from the Field


Dear Friends,

Happy April! Is anyone else excited for the spring weather? I know I am!

First off, I'd like to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated and made contributions to e-Buddies in the 2010 e-Buddies Friend-A-Thon during the month of March. We truly appreciate your support!

Also, as you may or may not know, April is officially National Volunteer Month. If you didn't know, that's probably okay. As an e-Buddies participant, you don't really need a special month for volunteering - you embrace the spirit of volunteerism every time you take the time to sit down and write a quick note to your e-Buddy. We truly appreciate your participation in e-Buddies!

Speaking of dedication to volunteerism, I wanted to take the time to recognize one of our fantastic buddy pairs, Robert from New Hampshire and Bill from Ohio. This month, Robert and Bill will celebrate their 10th anniversary as e-Buddies! Wow! Congratulations, guys.

There are some great features in this month's e-Beat. Be sure to check out this month's Update from the Field - this month, Best Buddies Arizona contributes a truly inspirational piece that emphasizes just how Best Buddies' simple can empower people to achieve great things. And don't miss a visit with one of our fantastic e-Buddies match in this month's e-Buddies of the Month.

See you in May!

Take care,
Bill Maurer
