Take the hair dye challenge!

Blu Lu and artAre you really into parrots? Enough to dye your hair blue? I hope so because I have started a campaign to raise funding and awareness for Blue Throated Macaw conservation. Yes I dyed my hair blue and challenge you to do the same. You don't need to dye a lot and it can be temporary dye or semi-permanent (I recommend Ion Sky Blue) This semi-permanent color comes out very bright if you lighten the section you want to dye first.

The idea is that by dying your hair blue you have a nice conversation starter. Tell people you dyed yourhair to raise awareness for the plight of Blue Throated Macaws. There are less than 300 left in the wild in Bolivia.

If you choose not to dye your hair, that is OK. Just make a donation to The Bird Endowment. A non profit that is working hard to save Blue Throated Macaws in the wild. You can make a donation at www.BirdEndowment.org.

If you do dye your hair, you get to challenge others to dye their hair! Be sure to post video or photos of you and your wonderful hair on social media when you issue your challenges. We want the world talking about these fabulous macaws. Here is my video http://youtu.be/reer0mW79eI

You dont need to be nominated to participate. If you want to dye your hair now....Go for it! And then issue your "Go Blue for Blue Throated Macaws" challenges. Let's get the ball rolling!

All proceeds will be donated to the Bird Endowment, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving blue-throated macaws. Their Nido Adoptivo ™ program funds the building and monitoring of artificial nest boxes for wild blue-throated macaws. Competition with other species for nest sites has contributed to the macaws’ demise. Supplemental nesting has made a difference for these rare parrots. ( www.BirdEndowment.org)
