Please join us for our 1st official (& virtual) Mermaid Event for the Best Day Ever Foundation on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 10th at 1pm (EST).

A dear friend of ours, Jen Havlin, who unfortunately knows the pain of losing two of her babies, would like to honor Sophia and help our new foundation make an impact for other families who have lost a child.

 Jen has set a goal to try and raise $1,000 to benefit the Best Day Ever Foundation and has volunteered to shave her head....yes, I said shave her head! Jen will share her personal story and why she wanted to do this for our new foundation, so be sure to join us on Sunday.

 We’ve raised $250 towards her goal! Thank you in advance if you can donate any amount to help her meet her goal!!!

 We are accepting donations through our Best Day Ever Foundation PayPal account at this link: 

If you prefer not to use PayPal, checks can be made out to the Best Day Ever Foundation and mailed to 1800 Farmhouse Way, Florence, KY 41042
Thank you!!

Let’s help Jen reach her goal and make a mermazing 1st event!!!
