A big THANK YOU from the blue hair…

I made a promise that if the #12DaysOfGiving campaign managed to raise at least $2000 in support of our Day 5 featured charity (National Autism Association), I would dye my hair blue. (I pretended that this was a big chore on my part - for the kids - but really I was excited to do this... I haven't had my hair blue since high-school) Well, it took a little bit of creativity at the last moment (read this post if you want to guess), but we raised over $2100 for the National Autism Association... and an amazing total of $13,831 for all 12 charities involved. Well done everyone, thank you so much for being involved! I did it... I Dyed It Blue With some help from my good friend Andrea Robin, I managed to meet an amazing (and super generous) stylist named John at Sets on Fort who did an amazing job on making my hair blue. Check it out: Step 1 - Trim Hair [caption id="Step ...

Some things have changed since I originally departed, but the wardrobe ...
