On Saturday May 7th 2016, I had the pleasure to face paint at the 2016 Best Buddies Friendship Walk at Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando. The event had a very successful turnout and the weather was perfect for a walk around the lake. It took two painters to meet the needs of the event, so I had my face painting partner Lindsey join me. We both painted for four hours straight. We painted children, teens, and adults. Everyone got in on the face painting activities.
Best Buddies is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
