Obscure&Co. (along with talented Lizzy Fay) had the opportunity to visit a grade school outside of Chicago to experience the Best Buddies organization firsthand.
Best Buddies is a non-profit organization that pairs a buddy who has an intellectual or developmental disability with a friend or mentor. Unfortunately, those that were handed a disability often find themselves on the outside when it comes to socialization. Best Buddies has been changing that for the last 30 years.
We met with teachers, students, and parents of some of these buddies during our visit while filming a spotlight on one very special friendship: Anna and Fiona.
If you ever get the chance to help out with a Best Buddies organization or event - make sure you do in some way or another! It’s a truly rewarding experience!
