Special Buddies for Special Children®
Welcome to The Shadow Buddies Foundation
We work to spread Miles of Smiles to children across the world!
Since 1995, The Shadow Buddies Foundation has been bringing smiles, hope and companionship to medically challenged children across the country and around the world in the form of cuddly, plush Buddies.
Our Shadow Buddies are a representation that your child, regardless of any illness they may have, is never alone, that they can proudly proclaim they have a friend “just like me.”
Help the Shadow Buddies Foundation spread love and education to these special children and their families; you can donate your time, money and even Buddies, themselves, to make a difference in the life of a child.
Buddy of the Month
Cleft Lip/Palate Buddy
Hi, I’m the Cleft Lip/Palate Buddy! I’m a friend that’s just like your little one and an excellent teaching tool for medical professionals to explain what’s going on with your child’s body. I’m also the perfect tangible support system to remind them that they are never, ever alone. I have a physical split in my upper lip that extends to my nose, heart-shaped eyes and a proud smile! I also come individually packaged and outfitted in a brightly colored gown.
