Summer is slipping decidedly away as I write this, and I hope yours fulfilled all your vacation dreams.

For e-Buddies, this summer brought the very first e-Buddies survey. We asked e-Buddies participants who had been matched for three months or more to tell us about their experience. Over 90% said they are enjoying e-Buddies, want to continue, and would recommend e-Buddies to others.

That's heartening news for all of us who work every day to make e-Buddies meaningful and to expand the number of people involved. My thanks to the entire e-Buddies staff for their commitment and hard work.

And, my thanks to you for joining! I welcome your feedback and ideas, in every season.
