2012 For Our Boys Calendar to Benefit Homes For Our Troops

Back by popular demand, Dixie Pin Up is producing our second “For Our Boys” calendar. This year’s calendar will be benefiting Homes For Our Troops;  an organization that builds specially adapted homes for severely injured soldiers, at no cost to them and their families.  Our 2010 calendar took us by surprise with the overwhelming responses of media coverage and sales across the country and internationally.  What started out as a small project to raise a little money for a great cause grew into sales of over 1,000 calendars and over $6,100 raised to donate.  The calendar was purchased and enjoyed by all ages.  From the young man just starting out his military career to WWII and Vietnam vets, everyone seemed to embrace the spirit of raising money for a good cause.  

We prided ourselves on the tasteful balance we were able to create and the women who were chosen as our calendar girls.  Media coverage such as the Bayonet, a Ft. Benning, GA newspaper, Army.mil and Military.com was crucial to our success in sales.  We are looking to have that coverage and more again this year to help us raise as much money as possible and awareness for Homes For Our Troops.

Not knowing how well received our calendar would be, we were asking for small donations in order to cover our printing costs;  as the project progressed so did the time and money spent.  We were forced to cover production costs from partial proceeds of the calendars sold only allowing us to donate half.  This year, our goal is to raise all the production costs up front so that we are able to produce the same stunning product but in the end be able to donate 100% of the proceeds to HFOT.  We are hoping by doing this we will be able to more than triple our donation!

We hope that you may find it in your heart to help us reach our goal of donating an estimated $18,000 to Homes For Our Troops.  We know that times have been tough these last few years for many people, but in the end your small but crucial sponsorship will help build a home and a life for a soldier who nearly gave their life for us!

Sincerely,
Sarah Caudel
