What Does International Friendship Day Mean to Us?
At MdS, companionship is a keyword. To celebrate International Friendship Day this year, we partnered with Disney – the ultimate friendship icon, to release a new limited edition update to our bestselling Sling Phone Case. Inspired by Disney's most iconic duos, these products capture the spirit of companionship in its many forms.We asked around the office to see what our team thinks International Friendship Day means. Of course, we realised it can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. But our team had some pretty great answers...
Omar, CEO and Founder
"Like many others around the world, I haven't seen my friends in a very long time. For me, International Friendship Day is simple. It’s about finding time to reconnect, to reshare memories that shaped our friendships and look forward to the next adventure together, whenever and wherever that might be."
Zane, COO and Founder
"International Friendship Day is about telling the ones you care about most how much you appreciate them, how grateful you are to have them in your life, and to reflect on the friendship you share."
Aleks, Operations Manager
"Friendship is like a rainbow that shares seven colours: love, happiness, sadness, truth, faith, secrets, and respect. I believe we're connected to the people we love through shared emotions. To me, International Friendship Day is a chance to celebrate what keeps us bonded – our friendships, adventures, and moments of pure bliss."
Steph, Creative Lead
"International Friendship Day is a reason to tell your ride-or-dies how much you love and appreciate them. They fill my life with colour, and I use every chance I get to celebrate that."
Vincent, Digital Marketing Lead
"To me, International Friendship Day is a time to say thank you and to be grateful for all the memories I've shared with all the incredible people I've met through different times of my life, in different places around the world. It's also the perfect reminder to reconnect with all those beautiful souls and do something to celebrate our friendship."
