Three Ways To Celebrate Best Buddies Month


Best Buddies Month Logo

March is Best Buddies Month

Best Buddies Month is a time for Best Buddies participants to reflect on the importance of friendship, jobs, and the development of future leaders. Most importantly, it is a time to show the world the significance of these essentials in every individual’s life.

What began in 1993 as a one-day event has become a month-long celebration of the Best Buddies mission. In addition to all the fun and exciting activities your chapter has planned, we’re asking you to celebrate Best Buddies Month by doing one, or all, of the following:

1) Join a Best Buddies Friendship Walk

Over the years, our walks have made a profound impact in communities nationwide, especially for individuals with IDD. Every Best Buddies Friendship Walk promotes an atmosphere for new friendships, promises opportunities, and most of all, inclusion for all people. This is where you can make a difference! You can make new friends, and promote community inclusion simply by participating in this year’s Best Buddies Friendship Walk.

Sign up for a Best Buddies Friendship Walk event in your area at http://www.bestbuddies.org/walk

2) Rock your Best Buddies gear

What better way to display the power of our mission than by wearing your Haring tee? It’s a conversation starter, and one of our biggest creators of awareness, besides you. Don’t have Best Buddies gear? Visit our merchandise store at http://www.bestbuddies.org/shop. We have some cool new items this month!

Send us pictures on Twitter & Instagram with @BestBuddies #BestBuddiesMonth

3) Spread the Word to End the Word

March 6th was Spread the Word to End the Word Day, but our campaign doesn’t start and end there. Pledge to end the derogatory use of the word retard(ed) by taking the pledge at http://www.r-word.org, and encourage your friends and family to join our campaign to promote respectful language.
