Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Today I was at S.A.I.N.T.S for one of many upcoming shoots of their wonderful and whimsical collection of special needs animals. Carol, the founder, and I are talking about collaborating on a photodocumentbookthing about this huge and amazing rescue she runs.

While I was there, I overheard the most *interesting* conversation. Apparently, someone came up with the most brilliant idea for a fundraiser - a fundraiser wherein they either raise $2000.00 .... or Carol shaves her head.

S.A.I.N.T.S. is an incredible sanctuary for senior and palliative and "unadoptable" animals. Over 130 of them call this little farm Home.

The old.

The Blind.

The maimed.

And the ... uh ...

Oh, it's Percy. Best. Cow. EVER.

All of them have found safety, love and physical and emotional nourishment in Carol's home.

That's why I don't think it's very nice to make Carol shave her head! She's already lost her sanity, she shouldn't have to lose her hair too ;-)

If you're interested in helping Carol keep her hair, email S.A.I.N.T.S. to find out how you can purchase a lock of her hair and give it a good home on her head!

And please give Daphne a cookie. She's starving.

You have 100% captured Percy's self.

Great work Sheena. Really. Great work.

Cool photos of the animals!

I would totally by a photodocumentbook thing from you! Also, would totally buy a calendar with photos of your dogs - maybe a good way to subsidize so you don't have to get rid of the equipment?

A photodocumentbook thing is a great idea - you could do one of TDBCR. Putting something on youtube with links to the web sites would be a good way to get visibility and more people aware of the work you guys do.

And, of course, great pictures and great work done by SAINTS.

Wonderful pictures and wonderful work done by S.A.I.N.T.S.

Erin said...

Yay SAINTS! I've been meaning to head out that way and visit, as it's been one of my local charities for a few years now.

That last picture is so full of awesome, I can't stand it! I want a picture of Maia with her ears out like that!

Wow. I want to adopt Fourlane incredibly badly!! Alas I live in Georgia, and have two dogs he would probably hate :p

Is there a time limit on when you have to donate by to save Carols hair? :p

Also, I think that is such a great place and what a cool fund raising idea!

Hey Sheena,
I just went by S.A.I.N.Ts pages yesterday. The work Carol does is awesome! Wish there is something I can do from where I am! I think you both should really give the photodocumentbook a go! It's a great idea.

You have the talents, she has the animals. You both need the money. What are you both waiting for?!?!? *Hugz*

Hi Sheena,
I sent you an email donation to support the blog, which, BTW, makes me laugh out loud every time I read it. Please don't stop. Ever. However, I noticed that you have not accepted the transfer yet. Do you want me to resend to another address?
