Shear Madness

Tomorrow, March 1st is the 1st installment of Shear Madness, on Nat Geo Wild at 10pm.  It’s the story about my friend Natalie Redding.  Here’s the NGW blip about it.  Please check it out.

Shear Madness takes us on the journey of city-girl-turned-sheep-farmer Natalie Redding, as she juggles her many farm animals and her family of five children with her husband Sean.  Leaving a first-class life in the city for a sheep farm in the country, Natalie relies on her 200-animal flock, shearing their wool for profit. With her “Mr. Mom” husband Sean at her side, Natalie balance her farm business and deals with the daily impacts it has on her family. But it’s a risky trade, as one wrong decision could not only kill an animal, but could cost her the entire business.

Shear Madness, Natalie Redding

Buy One, Donate One

Help me out with my project.

The small community of Indian Springs is about 50 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada.  It has around 900 – 1000 residents, around 250 are children.  Currently, there is an 80+% unemployment rate. The Pre-K through 12th grade school is the focal point of the community.  Every year there is a Christmas party given at the school for underprivileged families in the community.

At my store, Susie Rose Designs, http://www.zibbet.com/SusieRoseDesigns, I’m doing something a bit different.  For every item at my store listed under “Buy One Donate One” that is purchased, I will donate one similar item to the school benefit the Indian Springs Community.  This also includes any custom orders. 

If you want to make a direct donation to help the community, please contact Vicki Johnson, the banker at the school, at (702)879-3201.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
