I am often looking for worthy causes and fundraisers to donate to so when I heard about Mellow Mushroom in Fayetteville hosting a St. Baldrick's Shave-a-thon for Children's Cancer, I just had to get involved. I donated a gift certificate for a full glamour session including hair and makeup and was so surprised at the amazing people I met because of it.
Ms. E was a waitress at Mellow Mushroom and is such a kind and giving soul. She voluntarily shaved her head in order to raise money for this cause and her awesome co-workers won this gift certificate for her. When asked why she would shave her head (as I don't know many women who would do this even on a dare), she said that she lives her life trying to have a beautiful soul and jumped at the chance to raise money for an illness bigger than hair or vanity. She says "I was just going to shave half of it but as it got closer to the shaving, I thought of how all those little girls and boys don't have a choice when it comes to them losing their hair, so why should I?"
Ms. E brought her mother to the session and we had such a blast! These women are stunning inside and out and I am so blessed to be able to have met them.
