Buddy Ambassadors Give Back

The Buddy Cruise Ambassador program was launched in 2009.  The program is comprised of individuals who volunteer their time to further the mission of Buddy Cruise; Awareness, Inclusion and Education.

An idea that was born from our Ambassador Program is The Ambassador Outreach – Buddy Gives Back program. In 2010 through this program we provided much needed resources for The Down Syndrome Center in Nassau, Bahamas. Last year we helped raise funds to support the adoption of an orphan via Reeces Rainbow, an organization that finds families for the our ambassador program most vulnerable of orphans throughout the world.
