Silvie Bells

sb-logo-largeWe had the pleasure of having Jennifer Smith  of Silvie Bells.

“Our daughter Silvana (Silvie) was born with life-threatening complications and given a 10% chance of survival.  While she was fighting for her life in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) I made a promise… “If Silvie survives, I will find a way to pay it forward.”

Silvie spent December and January in the NICU, the holidays we’re not merry or bright.
Happily she graduated the NICU on January 31, 2016!

To keep my promise to pay it forward if she survived, I created Silvie Bells.
We are a 501c3 NonProfit that gives families of sick and preemie NICU babies a bit of cheer during the holidays by gifting them the things that helped us during our own NICU journey. ”

Sea Turtle Adventures

downloadWe had the pleasure of having Jacquelyn Kingston, President and Founder of Sea Turtle Adventures.

Our mission is to conserve local populations of sea turtles, educate the public about the marine environment, and provide nature-based programs and life skills training to adults with disabilities.

History

Established in 2016 when biologist Jacquelyn Kingston, after working with several adults with special needs, recognized that increased conservation awareness can enrich the lives of this under-served audience. For 18 years, Kingston has been permitted by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to monitor sea turtle nests along a three-mile stretch of beach in southern Palm Beach County. Creating STA offered a way to provide more environmental education through hands-on activities such as beach cleanups, observation of turtle monitoring, and presentations that effectively engage adults with disabilities in the community.
