The votes were counted, the finalists announced, Joey here won pride of place on the cover and now the dust is settling from the 2015 Dog Calendar vote. So what was it all for?
As a photographer, calendars are no way to make a living. So why is this the third year I'm doing a calendar? Because it's fun. It's a project that I do simply because I want to play. The bonus that goes with the Dog Calendars is CAREing Paws - the cause, the people and the stars of the show: the dogs.
When I met CAREing Paws founder Melissa Saul three years ago, we talked about a fundraiser for the organisation, to help them keep doing the great things they do for Georgia, USA communities. For an idea of what they do, check out 'Where We Visit'. At the time we had no idea of the huge response from people around the nation, but in the aftermath we realised we had to do it again.
So here we are - calendar nearly ready to send to the print lab, all geared up to raise funds for CAREing Paws. Last year you raised $535 - let's do even better this year! Below is the button that will take you to the online store. The store is open now and orders will be accepted until 30 September 2014, with delivery of your calendar in November.
$5 from the sale of every calendar will go to CAREing Paws! Go ahead, click the button now and help Melissa and her team serve your community.
Sorry, the 2015 Dog Calendar is no longer for sale.
