As many of you know, I joined Best Buddies New York about a year and a half ago. Our mission is to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities be fully included and valued in society. Our programs help facilitate one-to-one friendships between people with and without disabilities. We also create leadership opportunities and in the coming year, we hope to help people with IDD find jobs. I'm privileged to be the State Director of this organization at a time when there is great opportunity to expand our programs into many underserved communities and high profile companies around NYC and the state.
Of course in order to do this, we need to raise lots and lots of money. :) And that's why this year, while my knees are still healthy and I've got some energy to burn, I'm doing my part with Team Best Buddies - to raise awareness and money to support our life-changing programs.
Thank you in advance for your contribution of any size. Every little bit helps, and the collective impact of our team will support 4 - 5 of our school programs.
