The Buddy Bench

What Is The Buddy Bench?
 
The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground. Let's spread the message of inclusion and kindness! I am raising money to have these benches installed at Endeavor and Snake River Elementary Schools in Nampa, ID.

--UPDATE--
I've decided to up the ante and am asking you to help me raise money for another bench. I've raised the goal amount to $2,100. Please pass the word, and thank you for your support!

On March 22nd-24th, I'll be running for two days non-stop to raise money for this at the Pulse Endurance Runs at Eagle Island State Park in Eagle, ID. You can track my progress from this website: https://www.facebook.com/pulseenduranceruns/.
