~ Safe Waters Foundation GoalsThe goals of SWF reflect our charter:
~ Relay For LifeRelay For Life (RFL) is the main volunteer-driven cancer fundraising event of the American Cancer Society. Originating in the United States, the Relay For Life event has spread to 21 countries. Relay events are held in local communities, campus universities, military bases, and in cyberspace. Although the main objective of Relay is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, the event is held to spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer, and unite a community in the fight against cancer. 
For more information, visit the RFL web site. SWF participates regularly in RFL - watch for announcements of future RFL campaigns.

~ Mer MentorsMer Mentors are volunteer mers that are available to assist new mermaids and mermen. They can help introduce you with the mer world, and assist with questions regarding tails, AO's, HUD's, shopping, and great places to swim. Some may also help with general SL questions, but their emphasis is mer. The best way to find one is to go to SWF HQ and check who is online at the welcome desk.
~ SWF Concierge StaffNiamh Gedenspire - Concierge Administrator:
We're a group of sophisticated servants here in SWF called SWF Concierge. What we're here for is to better improve upon and increase assisting all mers in being mers. We do our best to seek out and assist guests to join our ranks, help new members to learn more about what a special organization that SWF is, and we assist regular members, officers, mentors, guardians, sages, elders, military, and so on as well.
We have all information about SWF at our disposal so that we may assist anyone on any level. We have the latest and greatest info on tails, hangouts, sea creatures, rides, to giving even newly elected officers a copy of what they need to know in order to become one.
Our goal is to keep all this info readily available as needed to assist anyone on any level. The Concierge Team includes:

~ SWF ApprenticesAn apprentice works to assist one of the officers of Safe Waters Foundation -- it's often the small details of running around, but allows so much more to be accomplished.
It is a way to give with a flexible schedule, and a way to get to know one very sage mer in a trust-building environment. Not glorious, but they are definitely part of the team. Right now the bonds are forming and trust-building as we learn to work together.
Send Grace a note if you think you might like to be a SWF Apprentice. It takes reliability, great patience... oh, and a generous soul!
