So much fun! Last year i moved to Santa Barbara and didn't know anyone. Through this organization I met new friends, made great memories and loved volunteering with such fun kids! Can't wait for this year:)
Best Day for the child who participates...Best Day for those who volunteer...Best way to spend a weekend! Great people doing even greater good.
I volunteered with Best day Foundation NJ in July 2016. it was an inspiration to see the joy of the participants and the gratitude of the families. What a moving experience!
I have been volunteering with Best Day in NJ for 5 years now. Every day that I am on the beach surfing with the kids is one that generates wonderful human interactions, lasting memories, and happy tears. There is no day like a Best Day!
Words cannot describe the impact it makes on you. What an amazing day!
I volunteered at Best Day and it really was the BEST DAY!!! I was beach buddies with two teenaged boys and together we had fun playing in the sand and the boys completely enjoyed boogie boarding. They rode the waves several times. Nothing beats the smiles of pure joy on their faces as they caught wave after wave. I'm still smiling days later. I can't wait to volunteer next summer and I will definitely try to volunteer at their winter events this year. Everyone should volunteer for this organization. You won't be sorry!
My son has had the honor of participating, and I of volunteering with this amazingly, awesome organization for the past four years.
Words cannot begin to express the emotional, psychological, and physical high, my son is on when he's out on the water trying to catch those roaring waves!
Mike, Chris, Todd, Kevin, Barb and Kerry, are unwavering in their dedication, passion, and love, when it comes to putting that beautifully, beaming smile on our truly special kiddos.
It takes a village................and we are beyond blessed, to be part of this one.
Best Day is the trunk, my son is the foliage, and I am the coconut, that falls from tree in deep admiration
Truly a superb organization, led by selfless, devoted,loving volunteers!
Because of the Mike,Chris, Todd, my son becoomes a totally different person........a free, loving, spirit, waiting to catch a wave, n ride it in, on the board, like it's second nature!
The enthusiasm builds up slowly as soon as I sign him,and is full blown on his" surf day", as he calls it.
I wish I'd win the lotto, so I could joyfully give to such a deserving non-profit organization, that is Best Day!!!
The days I've spent volunteering at Best Day have been the best days of my life. You can definitely find me there all six days next summer.
Just got home from the August 2 event on Brick III beach. All I can say was " that was the best day ever" I was a volunteer and just the amount of love and smiles and happy giggles from the kids made my heart swell! What an amazing group of organizers, volunteers and most of all family's and the amazing kids that participate. Truly one of the best days I have had.
Little did I know I was in for the best day of my life volunteering with the Best Day Foundation. I was instantly in awe of the positive energy of the child I was partnered up with. A kid like no other, he was only looking forward to what the day had in store. Not only did Nathan expand what he thought was possible in himself, but so did I.
