Best Buddies - The Art of Doing Good

Montblanc John F. Kennedy Special Edition Pen Close-Up

With the John F. Kennedy Special Edition, Montblanc pays tribute to one of the most beloved and influential presidents. Now Montblanc is delighted to announce its partnership with the Best Buddies, a non-profit organization founded by the president’s nephew, Anthony Kennedy Shriver. 

Best Buddies Foundation

President Kennedy had incredible empathy and was one of the first American Presidents to enact meaningful legislation for those who needed it the most – Americans with disabilities. In the same spirit of public service, Best Buddies is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver, which creates one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities; in both the United States and in more than 50 countries.
