Review for Best Day Foundation, Santa Cruz, CA, USA
Amazing organization! My 9 yr old son attended one of their beach days in Santa Barbara; our family was so impressed with the organization of the day! He was able to try kayaking, boogie-boarding and surfing with the help of amazing volunteers! Our son is autistic, very shy and often does not know how to properly express himself; the volunteers in the water and his buddy who was coordinating his next event were so friendly, encouraging, and helpful; our boy had such a blast and was so proud that he even had a wipe-out like a real surfer. Although our son is considered high-functioning, he is unable to keep-up with typical sports classes, so we are SO thankful to BestDayFoundation for giving him the opportunity to try these sports in such a welcoming environment that made him feel happy and accepted. Best Day also provided snacks and lunch, and our son could not have been prouder to receive his medal at the end of the day to the cheers of all the volunteers! We hope this non-profit continues to provide these fun days for our kids!
