Scientists have no idea what to make of this newly-discovered dog
At Lava Mae we believe that with hygiene comes dignity and with dignity, opportunity.
Last year the Gaiman Foundation helped fund the first of these buses. Now Lava Mae are out to fund a second bus. Can you help?
There are 7,350+ people without homes in San Francisco. Over half live on the street yet there are only seven places where they can drop in to take a shower.
It’s not just San Francisco that has this problem. Communities across this country are failing to provide access to hygiene for their citizens. We hear from someone just about every day in some city or town in the US who asks us to bring Lava Mae to their community. The need is huge.
A few years ago, I was working for an ad agency on a business-to-business campaign. The concept we came up with called for illustrations of exotic birds (a Bird of Paradise, a Secretary bird, that sort of thing), and the client agreed to hire probably the best bird illustrator around.
Five illustrations came in at over £2,000 each, but they were worth it. The finished work was astounding - you could count not just the feathers, but even the little bits of each feather - and the client was stunned. He eventually had each one framed for reception in his company’s head office.
That client wasn’t the issue, though.
While we were still working on the campaign, another client came in and saw the originals waiting to be used.
Client: What are they for?
Confidentiality notwithstanding, we gave him a brief outline.
Client: Really? Hm. They look expensive. How much were they?
We told him ‘a four figure sum - each.’
Client: What? You’re kidding? Seriously? Have you paid him yet? I’ve got a CD of clip art with pictures like that on. I could let you have them for a tenner.
We respectfully declined.
You throw a turtle party and someone brings a snake and it’s like did they even read the invitation, come on
Tynic I think you may be delirious, as this blog also does not seem to be real.oh sorry! It’s blueberrytouches - I always get handles mixed up if people use different ones in different places(Naw, I’ve seen them before, but I bet they’ve changed their url since then.)

I… huh. Why wouldn’t it load before??? I dunno, anyway, blueberrytouches, I posted Silly Geese earlier and it is delightful every time I come back to it.
(Also Tumblr still won’t let me tag you even though I can now see your blog? Strange.)

A very important lesson.
