Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful week so far! I've been dealing with a lot of unfortunate things over the past few days - which is why I haven't been posting much - but I will hopefully have things sorted soon! Thanks for all the likes on Facebook and to the new followers on my blog! You guys make it all worth while!
So I figure, since everything has now come out in the open anyway, that I would give you all the update on what has beeb happening with the World Mermaid Awards which I will no longer be attending for many good reasons.
Sita Lange and her Maui Mermaids have now been removed from my site and as soon as everything has been sorted and my tickets refunded, I will be removing myself from the mer-community entirely.
I am a mermaid for two main reasons, to have fun and to raise awareness for the big issues surrounding our planet. Had I realized the drama and the unprofessional manner with which the WMA was being organized, I never would have paid to attend or offered any help to Sita in any way.
For those of you who don't follow the mer community, I had recently revamped the WMA blog and created a new website for Sita Lange, with her written permission, to help her get the right information out to our fellow mers. I had also been in contact with the Silverton Hotel to get the right information so when people ask me (which has been happening quite a lot lately) I can give them the correct, up-to-date information which was not being provided by Sita and has still yet to be given.
I am also very upset to report that she has yet to give the information on where the part of the money she has been supposedly putting aside for charity will be going. This disappoints me greatly.
I would like to take a moment to thank all of you who have been supporting me through this difficult time. I really do appreciate it! I am so hurt and disappointed about this whole thing, but I'm not going to let it get in the way of my mission to help our planet!
Thank you to everyone who has participating in the Effect Change Challenges and doing their part to make a change, together we can make a difference!
