It comes after other worldwide names gave their support to our charity.

“I chose to support [Mermaids] because as a person living in Britain, I find the media discussion around this issue to be woefully misinformed, and I’d like to do my bit to help support the people who do the hard work of contributing to people’s thinking on an issue,”

Over the course of the two and a half day stream, both Cher and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to twitter to give their support as well!
