    Bringing awareness across the country for the many animals the Humane Societies save on a daily basis!!!

    Of course thanks to Fudge Hair Products, Lomantini the Salon, Linda Meyer of Office Technology Center, Greyhound Bus Lines, and my friends with airplanes for getting me to the tough spots quickly.

    It’s a rare and exciting opportunity to see the country side, talk to a lot of different people, continue mastering my craft and set a new record!!!

    Hope to see all of you very soon in your city!!!

  3. Finally here in Augusta, Maine. Took two days and a few challenges. Two things I did realize about the drive through the northeast is they love toll booths and McDonald’s!!! They are at every section and exit!!! Crazzzzzzzy….but they are some very nice people other than the random person in NewYORK took my wallet. He’s probably at McDonald’s. šŸ˜‰

  4. Currently in Bristol, Rhode Island. Very pretty place. The island state. Ocean right at your fingertips.
    Will start cutting at 7am eastern time. We have 67 appointments set. Going to be an amazing day!!

  5. Bristol, Rhode Island was an amazing trip. Wonderful hospitality !!! I cut hair for 13 1/2 hours and did 57 cuts. We raised at least 1500 dollars but unofficially counted. They were so generous to me and gave me a very touching parting gift and dinner to celebrate. i will definitely be back in Bristol!!!

  6. Arrived in Hartford, CT today to do it for day 6 and am disappointed that they only had 20 appointments for me. This Tour only works if the shelters and/or Humane Societies tell the world about whats happening!!! It’s not the salons responsibility and I don’t know the market. I am coming there to perform an act of kindness representing what YOU the shelter/humane society does on a daily basis.!!! I perform a FREE hair cut for donations to YOUR shelter/humane society!!!! Get off your butt and advertise!!!!!

    • Don’t get down remember what you accomplished in Boston………………………..every dollar helps an animal somewhere………………………….YOU’RE DOING GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Dedicating the remaining 23 days of the 50 States Tour to Tayler. Tayler was rescued from a certain unknown future at the humane society 15 years ago. Tayler, an australian cattle dog, became an amazing companion for my very dear friend Tad Godsey all those years. Tayler recently passed and with that left a lasting impression of just how much our four legged furry friends mean to us. We miss you and love you Tayler and we will be thinking of you at every state throughout the 50 States Tour.
