Diving into the new year with glittery tails, shiny scales, and … beards! Meet your calendar “Merbys” of 2018

In the new year, everyone loves to rip the clear film off of their new calendar and open the first page to a photo of a cute dog or a glamour model but, to support the Spirit Horse Mental Health Program, more than 16,000 buyers of “Merbys 2018” calendar were absolutely mesmerised by the shear glory of a bearded mermaid perched on a rock on the morning of January first.

Newfoundland and Labrador Beard and Moustache Club, founded and run by Hasan Hai, have come together to create a calendar filled with tails, scales and glittery bearded glory, and succeeded in raising over $300,000 to support Spirit Horse in providing mental health services, including animal therapy, for those in need.

While creating the calendar, Hai and his fellow “Merby’s” aimed to break down traditional ideas of masculinity and defeat the stigma by showing the vulnerable side of what appear to be traditionally masculine men using glitter, props, and, most importantly, “Merby” tails.


The results were solely positive and calendars were purchased in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Germany leaving many customers expressing absolute enthusiasm when receiving their calendars describing them as “the best surprise in the mail”.

So if the start of your 2018 is feeling dull, you need to invest in a “Merby 2018” calendar to ensure your 2018 is as whimsical as three bearded “Merby’s” strumming a guitar on the beach!
