December 1st is an exciting day. All around the country and the world, people are joining together to support their favorite nonprofits. After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday allows you to engage with issues that mean the most to YOU, truly encapsulating the holiday spirit by giving back.
Your support is so crucial as we work to raise $25,000 before the end of December, enough money to send 250 girls through our program at NO COST to them. These low income girls need MMRC, and you can touch their lives by gifting the program to them.
To celebrate Mini Mermaid's 6th birthday and to say thank you, our Executive Director and Co-founder, Heidi Boynton, is doing something amazing:
RUNNING 6 SEPARATE 5KS IN ONE DAY FOR #GivingTuesday or #GivingGratititude. Read Heidi's blog post about it HERE!
Heidi will be running all over Santa Cruz County, visiting schools that participate in Mini Mermaid Running Club and spreading the word about supporting 250 low income students with free programming next year. It is going to be a crazy fun day!
Give a gift in support of Heidi. Your gift will be used to give our programming to a low income student in 2016.

Mini Mermaid Mail
Over and over again, our society tells our girls that they can’t, won’t, or don’t. Mini Mermaid tells girls they CAN, they WILL, they DO. Throughout the month of December, we want to share stories with you of how YOU make a difference. Please expect a few more emails from us, as well as a few awesome cards in the mail. You know that girls CAN, and we need you to help us shout it from the rooftops! Find us on social media, and look for our cards sent to you with love in the mail. Let’s get this party started.
