Mermaid Cottages has the coziest homes away from home in Tybee Island and Savannah, it’s true. But we’re more than vacation rentals; we’re part of a community. That’s why we are active with the local island community, including helping people and local organizations we believe in and love. That’s what our project, Mermaids Make a Difference, is all about! We invite you to jump right in and volunteer during your visit. Of course, we’d like for you to get involved if even just for the day as well!
We love giving back to our community and want to share every opportunity we know about with you! If you are looking for ways to be more involved, whether it’s during your vacation or just for the day, make sure to check out the Community tab on our website. It’s a little thing we like to call Voluntourism on Tybee, and we’d love for you to join us in giving a little back! We have a list full of fabulous ways to get in there and give back. There are loads of upcoming events listed for you to choose from, like The Journey to Peace Walk to benefit the SAFE Shelter of Savannah on October 22nd, and The PurpleStride Savannah 5K to raise awareness and funds to fight Pancreatic Cancer November 12th, just to name a few. We also have Beach Sweeps planned on a regular basis, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy! You can even show off your Mermaid pride with a tee shirt from Seaside Sisters, where there are loads of other Mermaid Cottages goodies as well. Goodies that help you give back with each purchase!
Mermaid Cottages loves Tybee Island, and we know you do, too! We encourage you to take a little time during your visit to Tybee and join us in giving back to the community we hold so dear. We hope to see y’all real soon!
