Tennis players, gym goers, and artists? Our Athletes and Buddies do it all! We partnered with Paper Clouds Apparel and provided a wonderful opportunity for our Athletes and Buddies to participate in a fun design competition showcasing their artistic abilities and love for Buddy Up for Life.

Athletes and Buddies submitted designs that symbolized what Buddy Up for Life meant to them. Many of the designs focused on one of our three pillars: fostering of increased independence, promotion of greater health and wellness, and facilitation of meaningful friendship.  Five lucky designers were chosen and their creative designs were placed on t-shirts, hoodies, and other fun products for all of our families to purchase. A portion of each sale was donated to Buddy Up For Life.

Who is Paper Clouds? The mission of Paper Clouds Apparel is to make this world a better place for those with disabilities through three focus areas. First, by showing the world the artistic talents of the participating artist. Second, through focusing on raising funding for disability organizations, and finally hiring adults with disabilities to fold and package all of their shirts.

We are grateful for the partnership with Paper Clouds Apparel. Check out their website HERE to learn more.

Congratulations to the five designers and shoutout to all of the Athlete and Buddy artists who submitted designs!  See below to learn more about our five creative designers!
