Mermaid Linden Reaches Kickstarter Campaign Goal

Children’s ocean “edutainer” and swimming safety advocate (and Friend & Contributor) Mermaid Linden has reached her Kickstarter goal to fund a second season of her popular “Mermaid Minute” web series.

A very excited Mermaid Linden tells

Today is a mermaid milestone in my life as a children’s ocean educator. I am overwhelmed in the most wonderful way by the outpouring of generosity from my friends, family, sea fans and strangers alike! I am sending out a heartfelt ocean of thanks to every single individual who helped my dream become a reality over the past 30 days. Thanks to you, I am equipped to create a mer-mazing season two of my beloved Mermaid Minute for kids, parents, teachers and ocean-lovers everywhere! My fins are flipping with excitement!!!

This season will offer a much higher quality program with the opportunity to learn in several languages, something which has been requested by my viewers from all over the world.

My wish is to make the magic of our oceans accessible through high-quality edutainment to any child with a computer at home, school and beyond!

The funds raised will be used to make Season Two of the Mermaid Minute web series available exclusively on YouTube, with subtitling in several languages. Each episode will be paired with an educational supplement, made available on Linden‘s website as a free PDF download, perfect for parents and teachers to provide to child viewers at home or in the classroom.

Mermaid Linden’s work and the Mermaid Minute series have been featured on 20/20, The Today Show, Hallmark Home and Family, Univision, Huffington Post, Yahoo!, BuzzFeed, New York Magazine, Latin Times, UK Daily Mail and more – in more than 15 languages around the world.
