In the News: Best Day Foundation

bdf_logo_2color3I am thrilled to announce my affiliation with Best Day Foundation. Best Day contacted me about a month ago and asked if I was interested in lending a hand in their efforts. After learning more about their organization – it didn’t take me long to say YES! They are making this world a better place every day and I’m super excited to do whatever I can to help make a difference in the lives of special needs children through adventure activities (and boy am I excited for the water activities!).

pic_25_cp_dsc0170I’ve known Brooks Lambert (co-founder of Best Day) for many years. Actually going back to my days at One World Direct. He was a fantastic client of ours – and we all enjoyed working with him! He is truly an awesome person – personally AND in the business world. After talking with him – I knew I wanted to be a part of this amazing organization that he was building. I’m now in charge of their Social Media efforts so be sure to follow us, friend us and join us by clicking on our social media profiles below.

What is Best Day Foundation all about?
The Best Day Foundation helps kids with special needs build confidence and self-esteem through safe, fun, adventure activities like surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, snow-tubing, and more. Please join us in creating special days for kids with Autism, Downs Syndrome, Cerebral Pasly, Blindness, Cancer, Spinal Cord Injuries, and other physical and developmental challenges!

Mission
Best Day Foundation enables kids with special needs to build self-esteem and confidence through safe, fun, outdoor based based adventure activities which stretch their limits, expand their true potential, reinforce their achievment, and connect them with diverse populations in their community. Current activities include, Surfing, Body Boarding, Kayaking, and Snow Tubing.

Strategy
We achieve this empowering communities accross the country to offer special days at the beach and snow to children with special needs. Best Day provides back-end services, support, training, and business resources to ensure that safe, self-sufficient programs are created. The program is funded through donations, grants and sponsorships. Due to funding, it is currently a 100% volunteer-run organization.

History
Best Day is a non-profit founded in March 2008 in Santa Cruz, CA by Max Montgomery and Brooks Lambert, two long-time Ride a Wave volunteers who wished to bring services like the award-winning Ride a Wave program to other communities.
