Ask and ye shall receive

So, last Friday, Bel puts a note on my FB page:  Let's do a Twirly Girls calendar!

Well, okay!

Two hours later, I have a photographer lined up and I've sent an e-mail out to the Twirly Girls asking for volunteers. 

Less than a week later, we have our date set for the photo shoot, our list of groups and costumes for each month, and a list of possible printers for the calendar.

Don't mess around with me when things need to get done!

I'm REALLY excited about this calendar shoot.  This will be part of our fundraiser for the Lovely Rita's National Kidney Foundation 5k walk.  I think we should be able to keep the cost of printing the calendar to under $5 per calendar.  If we sell even 250 calendars at $10 each, that's already over $1,200 to the National Kidney Foundation!  That's over 1/3 of what we made last year and we haven't even gotten to the actual fundraiser day yet with our silent auction and raffle! 

I have about 20 girls willing to participate.  And Andrew, of Liquidpulp Photography, is graciously donating his time to do the photos.  I even have some people offering to help with hair and make up so that we can get dolled up.  

I think for January, we will highlight Mama Bel in a winter setting.  February will be Valentine's Day.  Lots of red and hearts.  I already have five girls in that group.  March is St. Patty's Day and I think this will be Rita's highlight month...to show off her silly side with all of the awesome green stuff we bought for St. Patty's Day last year.  April is Easter.  We will have the ladies of Rita's Fever dance in black and white, along with an appearance by the infamous Easter Bunny!  May will highlight Doug and the ladies who endure Twirly Tuff.  June will be the men of Twirly Girls.  They will all show off their "Pole Dancing is Not a Crime" shirts.  July will be Independence Day.  We have four ladies in this group so far.  August will be some of the ladies of the Wednesday night 6:30 p.m. class.  We will be in corsets.  September is back to school!  I have three ladies so far.  October will be Halloween.  Anyone with an awesome costume that doesn't feel like they fit in anywhere else can wear it here.  I have five ladies signed up.  November will highlight Marilyn's Tricks Are 4 Chicks class.  I know Sam is participating but I'm still waiting to hear from others.  December will be the holidays.  Mostly, I have ladies wearing Santa Baby costumes.  However, Jenelle has stepped up and will wear a white winter princess costume with a blue sash to represent Hanukka. 

I am really excited about how quickly this is coming together.  I hope the photo shoot goes well and we are able to get this to a printer.  If anyone is interested in purchasing the final product, please let me know!

UPDATE:  WE ARE LOOKING FOR COMPANIES WILLING TO HELP US PAY FOR THE COST OF PRINTING OUR CALENDAR.  WE WOULD GIVE YOUR COMPANY AN ADVERTISING SPOT ON THE CALENDAR.  PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.  THIS WILL ALLOW MORE MONEY TO GO TO THE NATIONAL KIDNEY FOUNDATION.  WE ARE NOT TRYING TO MAKE ANY MONEY FROM THIS CALENDAR -- THE ENTIRE PROFIT WILL BE DONATED.
