Best Friends Day

Celebrating National Best Friends Day

Today is National Best Friends Day! Do you have a “best friend?” While this is an “unofficial” holiday, many people celebrate the day by honoring the friends that are closest to them….their “best friends.” They call a best friend to say hi, or take them to lunch to celebrate. How will you celebrate National Best Friends Day?

How Are we Celebrating?

We are celebrating by sharing some of our favorite pictures with you! Most of the children in these pictures are in our sponsorship program and therefore, are either orphaned or vulnerable children. They love and cherish the friendships that they have. We hope you enjoy seeing the children we serve celebrating with their best friends.
