IFAW Event with Kristin Bauer at LUSH Cosmetics

November 1, 2009 by  

img-ifawKristin Bauer, who plays the hilarious vampire Pam on HBO’s True Blood, is a big advocate for IFAW and their Tails for Whales Campaign. IFAW has organized a grassroots effort to protect whales worldwide from the many threats that they face. They use pictures of Americans making the “whale tail” and combine them in a visual petition, seeking stronger leadership and policies in U.S. government. On Saturday, November 7, Kristin will be joining IFAW Director Jeff Flocken at the LUSH Cosmetics store in Santa Monica. She encourages everyone who can to come to the store between 1pm and 3pm, where you can help in this very important cause of the protecting whales:

“I’ve partnered with LUSH and IFAW. LUSH has created a cream for IFAW and is donating the proceeds to help save the whales from unnecessary deaths and extinction. I will be appearing at the LUSH store in Santa Monica on the third street promenade Nov 7th from 1pm -3pm and I’ll trade you a photo for a photo. Mine signed for yours making the Whale Tail! Let’s take a bite out of whaling!”

This event gives True Blood fans a great opportunity to see Kristin and get an autographed picture! Even if you are unable to go, you can still make your voice heard for the whales by uploading your picture to the Tails for Whales website. Another thing that would help would be to purchase the LUSH cream Kristin mentions. LUSH is a generous supporter of the IFAW effort, and proceeds earned from their “Charity Pot” products become contributions to IFAW’s marine mammal programs like the Tails for Whales campaign.

The picture below was taken by acclaimed photographer Larry DiMarzio, featuring Kristin as her True Blood character, Pam, with the cream that LUSH created for this cause. DiMarzio is a very talented guitar designer and photographer, and well-known in the music community. If you visit his website, you can see more of the great work he has done. Like Kristin, he donated his time and effort to help IFAW by doing the photo shoot.
