Transcript G oogs making new best jriencls, 1m creataig smiles, cnanging lives Best Buddies has already touched the lives of over 175,000 people worldwide. It is a non-profit organization that sets up individuals with people who have intellectual disabilities. Those who join the organization do it to help the intellectually disabled become part of mainstream society. However, everyone who joins usually gains as much from the organization as they give to it "We are lucky enough to see the positive effect first hand, from the smiles and laughter we bring them and they bring us," said senior MIS major Farah Farooqi. The UH chapter was started by Shazia Siddiqi. She felt the organization had a lot of potential and was a direct and immediate way to make a difference. It was free to join; the only thing most members contributed was a lot of time well spent. "I think it is important for University of Houston students, being from a commuter school, to understand the importance of helping in the community. With so many Best Buddies chapters around the world I felt it was time to create one here. Hopefully this attitude will spread and we will reach our goal of every college and high school having a chapter," said junior Shazia Siddiqi, a corporate communications and psychology major. Best Buddies arranged all kinds of activities for its members this year. They bowled, went on trips, had exciting holiday parties, and did several community projects. One of the main events they were a part of this year was the "Novemberfest Carnival", a charity fund-raiser for the Center for the Retarded. The UH Chapter had their own henna tattoo booth there to raise money. Other members volunteered at various booths, ranging from the Bake Sale to the Ring Toss. Best Buddies not only had fun though: they took care of business as well. Another thing the organization did was help develop and maintain integrated jobs for their buddies. "Being a member of best buddies has allowed me to befriend several wonderful individuals, and this experience has taught me that it is important to give more than you take," said senior communications major Rakhi Dave. - Sadaf Farooqui All together now Best Buddies gather for a Christmas party held in their honor at the UC.
