    Fundraiser: Ladies of Foo Calendar Ordering Thread

    8.5 x 11 spiral-bound calendars


    Contributions to Benefit
    Ideally, profits could benefit a charity of choice for each foo lady that contributes. As it is important to give the maximum benefit to as many causes as possible, we'll start by dividing profits equally among the charities below.
    1. artifice - The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training
    2. ehidle - The Sunshine Club (benefiting foo folks who fall on hard times)
    3. <3 2 Ride - MS Society
    4. katoikgrl - the global fund for women
    5. Siu Blue Wind - Antioch Animal Services

    How to Purchase/Donate
    ehidle has been amazing enough to handle orders and printing. You can also visit the link below to make a contribution to the above charities even if you don't want a calendar.
    Price: $25/each (+ shipping)

    BTW: Credit where it is due... I think Airwick first mentioned the calendar idea in the brainstorming thread... but I think he deleted the original suggestion post - I just happened to see it before it was deleted...

    I think we should also mention that your photos should be landscape, not portrait. The calendar photos will end up in landscape orientation so if you take the picture in portrait, it'll get cropped badly...

    FYI, It'll take me a while to get a pic taken... I only have an ancient 2MP camera, and a little 4.1MP.

    Would it be possible to combine photos to format for landscape? I like the collage idea. But if keeping it to a single photo makes life easier disregard.

    So, I'll throw one offer out... I'm a photographer in the SF Bay Area, so if anybody around needs pictures, I can take 'em.

    Holy smokes! 2 pics already?!? Foo is awesome. If I manage to come up with a few bucks, I'll throw it forward, although it may not be enough to by a calender.

    Nice...I may take you up on that. Not sure I have any suitable ones of me with a bike in high enough resolution (not counting the Duc).

    contributions to benefit
    ideally, profits could benefit a charity of choice for each foo lady that contributes. As it is important to give the maximum benefit to as many causes as possible, we'll start by dividing profits equally among three charities (from the first three foo ladies to submit photos). As the orders roll in, we can expand the number of people who will benefit.
    1. Artifice - the leukemia & lymphoma society's team in training
    2. Ehidle - the sunshine club (benefiting foo folks who fall on hard times)
    3. <32ride - ms society

    4. Kaiju velo mercian fund
