May is here. Spring is in full swing, the flowers are blooming and we’re partnering with one of the best organizations in town: Best Buddies.
If you’re not familiar with this charity, Best Buddies is an organization that’s dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
The IDD community that Best Buddies serves includes, but is not limited to, people with Down syndrome, autism, Fragile X, Williams syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and other undiagnosed disabilities.
Best Buddies is also the world’s largest organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with IDD. Their programs empower the special abilities of people with IDD by helping them form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.
Show Your Support!
You can rock your support by purchasing the Best Buddies limited edition shopping bag and koozie, available only in May! For $5, you can not only show your support, but 100% of the proceeds benefit the charity as well.
