Tomorrow at LUSH Cosmetics in Santa Monica, Kristin Bauer, aka Pam from "True Blood" will be signing autographs and taking pics between 1 and 3pm with fans who simply show up to support the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s (IFAW) Tails for Whales photo campaign.We had a chance to talk to the "True Blood" star about her support for this specific cause as well as get the lowdown on what will be on the upcoming "True Blood" DVD and the inspiration behind her character on the show.

LAist: Tell us about "Tails for Whales".

Kristin Bauer: We've been hearing about "save the whales" ever since we were kids and now we hear a lot about polar bears so I had believed that this had been taken care of this but we can't really cross anything off the to-do list in terms of saving. What troubled me was that there are so many unnecessary deaths for whales, whether it's the whales getting hit by ships in their breeding grounds or when they drown in old driftnets and fishing equipment in the ocean. This campaign is a way to let the people in Washington that we elect that we do want whales saved and that there is a bill that's been introduced that can do this. Right now many people are struggling financially and what is great about this campaign is that it's easy, it's fun, and we're not asking for money. We're just asking for photos of people making the whale tail with their hands. The only other option is to sign another petition but this campaign puts faces and photos towards the cause which I think is a lot more compelling. I'm showing up at LUSH because they have been so generous by creating a lotion from which the proceeds go to IFAW. Hopefully people will show up at LUSH and I will trade them an autographed photo for a photo of them making a whale tail and since they are there they might also be interested in this charity product.
