Our goal is to develop the biggest Friendship Campaign that has happened ever in Greece!
For the 2nd consecutive year, we wish to develop the campaign “Friendship Bells”, promoting the message that “Friendship is a Gift”. #Let’sBeFriends The “Friendship Bells”, promote friendships between volunteers and persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities! Colorful Friendship bells are created by a team of persons with and without intellectual disabilities who are participants in our workshop “Life Values”. For the development of the friendship bells various materials are needed i.e. colorful beads, cords, ribbons, metallic bells and a center piece which promotes the message “Friendship Is a Gift”.
Afterwards, these Friendship bells are placed in various places in the center of Athens. Last year’s first approach on this campaign had very good results and our passion to promote this campaign for the second time in Athens and also in other cities of Greece, creates our need to find the necessary resources, in order to establish this event as the greatest indication of friendship!
Moreover who doesn’t need a real and true friend?!
This campaign marks the beginning of our BIG event, the Friendship Walk!
For the 5th consecutive year, Best Buddies Greece, will organize the Friendship Walk, with the meeting and starting point at Syntagma square with final destination the historical Monastiraki Square! All over the world the Best Buddies Friendship walk has been established as the biggest friendship walk, of love and inclusion for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is a great event, where hundreds of people are involved and walk with our Buddies. It is an event where dancing, rhythm and music are the center of action!
Participants say…… “every year is better”! We are targeting for the best with all of you as our supporters. We invite you to make the greatest Friendship Walk to increase awareness for social inclusion of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
