Your Diamond Makes a Difference: Best Buddies International

In the Tampa area engagement ring market, we know you have options when it comes to your diamond dealers. At Mavilo Wholesalers, we want to help make that choice easy for you by supporting the very best of local charities at every opportunity, and we are proud to add Best Buddies International to our list of esteemed charities.

Best Buddies International is an organization that pairs disabled adults and teens with able peers to be their friends, mentors, and advocates. Volunteers spend time with their “buddy”, hanging out, visiting attractions, and ensuring that none of them fall through the cracks. These volunteers are guided by skilled and qualified social workers who ensure that both parties have positive experiences, and who can help with any needs that arise along the way. 

These people work together to bring an end to the social and emotional isolation that can be so crippling to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Best Buddies Global Ambassador, Cindy Crawford says:

Picture your best friend. Now imagine your life without that person. For people with developmental disabilities, the laughter and excitement of a best friend is only a dream. Best Buddies is a lifeline to the joy of having and being a friend.

For this reason, we have included Best Buddies International in our charitable contributions for 2023, 2024, and beyond. This is just another reason you can buy your diamond engagement ring from Mavilo Wholesalers with confidence and pride.
