I want to all of you about an organization I found called Buddy Project. It’s a website that matches people ages 13 to 25 by interests so they can have a friend. It’s kinda like pen pals.
To register you can go to http://www.buddy-project.org/
You will put your name, email, age, and Twitter account. You have to have Twitter to join. They use that to let your buddy reach you. After that you choose two interests from the list. Then you wait until you and your buddy are matched. This may take a week or so, because the girl that runs it is in college and has a busy life, but don’t worry she will get to them as soon as she can.
You can follow the Buddy Project Twitter account @ProjectBuddy. The owner gives updates on when she will match everyone. She also tweets about mental health and other things to help people. At the moment she is thinking about making shirt to sell for suicide awareness month.
