Where do heroes come from?


Through the course on starting this business I have come across a lot of amazing people, and I mean amazing! I pray that I can meet even more along the journey this career choice will take me on. A little over a year ago I was reunited with a dear friend from high school that I always looked up to back then, and still do, Kelli Neese Russell. Kelli is one of those amazing people who do amazing things for so many!!! Through her I have been blessed and will forever be in debt to her and her kindness.

This story began when Kelli asked me to facepaint for the St. Baldrick’s Event at Fibber’s in March of 2012. I had just started my business a little over six months before hand when she so graciously trusted me with her baby.  I brought my crew made up of my most trusted employees Tara Womble and Shawn Best both being my siblings. We painted on cheeks, foreheads, arms, backs, hands, and much more! We watched as all of those amazing and brave people shaved their heads to raise money for others in need. As we watched I remember my brother mentioning he wanted to shave his head after he saw a lovely lady shave hers especially after having scars that would be revealed. Not an easy thing for a woman, much less a woman with scars to show her story.

What you don’t know is that my brother, Christopher Shawn Best aka Shawn, was in a car accident in 1992. He was thrown out of the back windshield and a piece of metal went through his cheek, through his nasal glands, and entered his brain. He has a plate in his head and over the last 21 years has multiple brain surgeries, infections, scars, lost his ability to smell, and not to mention the scare of not seeing another day. As I am writing this he is scheduled for another surgery on March 20th. He is making a huge leap to shave his head this year despite his scars and wounds that go beyond physical so I am asking for any donation that you can give to help an amazing lady right here in our home town, Wilmington NC, who has been diagnosed with cancer. The more money we can raise the more help we can provide!

2012 Is starting off with a *** BANG ***


I am so pleased and honored that through Love is Bald , P3 was asked to face paint for the St. Baldrick’s Event on Saturday March 17th at Fibber McGee’s. My lovely volunteers and myself had a wonderful time and raised money too!

I can not even begin to explain the emotion that ran over me at the end of the day. First I have to tell you that 23 has always been my lucky number, and originally I was going to give 90% of my proceeds to St.Baldrick’s and just wanted enough to help offset some of my costs. As the day progressed and I saw some amazing men, women, children, those with scars who may have been ashamed, others who cried but gave up their hair to benefit others. When I see events like this it inspires me and makes me want to give back even more than ever before!! I decided to give all my proceeds to St.Baldrick’s with the original hope that I could donate $500.00. I counted my money and my total was $223.00. (Lucky Number) I immediately got cold chills and couldn’t hardly think. I turned my money in and we started to pack up only to come back to a table full of girls who wanted their faces painted. We unpacked our stuff and began to paint again adding within five minutes to our total another $20.00. Making it $243.00 for the day. Keep in mind that some people were giving us $20.00 bills. Thank you to everyone who can out and helped support such an amazing event!!

MUCH LOVE TO WILMINGTON!!!
