Help us fundraise for local non-profit, Hope's Anchor, and help our foster youth

Every March, KLJ Studios in Woodland, CA holds their annual Fairy Event. It is absolutely one of the most fun events we have and it is also for a good cause, helping foster youth in Yolo County. This year the donated proceeds will go to Hope's Anchor.

Hope's Anchor was started by Renee Helmsley to fill a vacant niche in the foster care program. At their annual fundraising event last summer, one of the foster moms explained to us the importance of having a non-profit like Hope's Anchor in their lives.

She told us a story of how they finally received permission to be foster parents. They were so excited and couldn't wait to be able to help out these kids who need a loving home to stay in. Their excitement was still in high gear right up until the very next day when they got a call saying they were getting their first foster baby right then! Extreme stress ensued as they realized they did not have anything to accommodate an infant. Their daughter was already out of the toddler stage and they had given away the crib and the other infant paraphernalia so important to taking care of a baby. Where were they going to get a crib, diapers, wipes, clothing, blankets in so short a period of time?

You guessed it! Hope's Anchor to the rescue. The organization provided most of what they needed right away, giving them the chance to welcome the baby and provide the essentials until they had time to figure out the rest.

It is our pleasure to help fundraise for an organization that helps those who help kids. And kudos to Renee for seeing a need and filling it while raising her own family which includes some foster children.

You can help, too, by participating in our Fairy/fishing event coming up the next two weekends. The studio provides the costumes (though you can bring your own, if you like!), and complimentary hair and makeup for teens and adults. We can do a little bit of sparkle makeup for the younger ones if their parents agree. If you ever dreamt about kissing a frog, catching fireflies in a lantern, or posing with a butterfly perched on your hand, then this is the event for you.

All ages welcome! Come on in and fulfill your wish to be a beautiful fairy, or lucky fishing expert. Contact the studio at 530-723-5332 or [email protected] to set up an appointment.
