Mermaid Cottages welcomes your FurMaids, so always bring them along when you visit!

Where does your good go? Within each of us is a capacity for doing good for others and when we do this good the rewards are great. This entry is part of a blog series about how our Mermaids Make A Difference. It’s not a platform for us to just talk about our good deeds and to pat ourselves on the back. It’s an opportunity to share our passions and to inspire others. We don’t all have to be passionate about the same things, but it is important for each of us to be open to helping others. Some people are fortunate enough to have lots of time and resources to do great things. Others with less resources can make just as much of an impact. We just have to do good when and where we see the need. Have you thought about it? Where does your good go?
One of the passions we are happy to share is our work to educate and preserve wildlife around the world. Lead by our Head Mermaid Diane, our Mermaids have donated time, monies and resources to fund education and to support conservation efforts around the world. Here’s an update from one of our partners…. read more
One of our brand standards at Mermaid Cottages is our commitment to conservation and volunteer opportunities in our area. We put on our Mermaids Make A Difference T-shirts and Mermaid hats and we dig in to help where we’re needed. This Saturday, February 1st, is when our Mermaids make a difference at Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. Each month, Second Harvest volunteers pack approximately 765 boxes of food to be delivered to local senior citizens in need. Many times, our seniors are forced to choose between refilling their prescription medications, paying utilities and buying food.
The mission of the food bank is to feed the hungry by distributing nutritious food to nonprofit agencies and at risk elderly and youth, to assist in disaster relief, and work towards long term solutions to hunger and poverty. Their statement of purpose is “Utilizing food and education to improve lives and create a Hunger-Free community”…. read more
