Friendship Updates Mobile Contest To Launch November 1


In August of 2013, Best Buddies International launched the Friendship Updates mobile web application (app). This app allows matched buddy pairs to easily submit Friendship Updates using a mobile device of their choice.  These Friendship Updates are a great way to share amazing experiences in Best Buddies, and provides our organization with valuable feedback that allows us to improve our programs.

To celebrate the launch of the Friendship Updates app, and kick off another year of friendship, we are very excited to announce the 2013 Friendship Updates Mobile Contest!


  • For the month of November, buddy pairs submit Friendship Updates using the mobile web app at!
