Here's some more information on an amazing organization that is changing lives daily!
Their mission is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Best Buddies created the 2020 Initiative in 2011, with the goal of opening offices in all 50 states, expanding into 100 countries, and impacting 3 million people with and without IDD worldwide by the end of 2020.
The initiative also includes plans to train 4,000 Buddy Ambassadors, develop 1,000 jobs for people with IDD around the world, and increase the number of school-based chapters to 2,500.
As a result of these ambitious expansion efforts, Best Buddies hopes to become a household name by the end of 2020.
As of Feb. 10th, Best Buddies has raised $31,938 of their $57,000 goal!
The Friendship Walk takes place on Sat. Feb. 21st. from 8am-1pm starting at Kiwanis Park in Tempe.
