Misplaced Calendars of 2007

As I continue to scan the web for calendars, and search engines refine their code, and more news sites digitize their archives, I find additional calendars that I didn't catch when they were new. The following 2007 calendars are still good for a few months, and some of these organizations are planning 2008 editions.

And a double-header: Two calendars, presumably one of each:

Pin-Ups For Vets

A few years ago, I started seeing news articles about under-funded Veterans’ healthcare programs. Then, there were stories about older Veterans who lay in bed day after day, never receiving any visitors. Reports started surfacing on TV about the severe injuries sustained by our troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. The more I heard about the uphill battles of our Wounded Warriors, the more convinced I was of the need to produce a project that would bring in funds to support all of our hospitalized Veterans.

Purchase the calendar at Pin-Ups for Vets. Press coverage at Wonkette and Diary of a Nudist.

A group of working men from Lindale near Grange-over-Sands have been tensing their torsos and posing for photographs for a cheeky new calendar, which it is hoped will raise much-needed funds for projects in the village. ...The calendar will be available to buy at a variety of outlets in South Lakeland, including Lindale Village Stores.

Surgery Girls

Receptionists, nurses, pharmacy dispensers and even a doctor at the Ryan Medical Centre, in St Mary's Road, have stripped off for a calendar which aims to raise more than £5,000 for the centre's Tender Nursing Care charity.

Charity president and GP at the centre, Dr Anne Allister said: "We had a lot of fun doing it and all the girls were very keen to take part once we had mentioned the idea."

Already dozens of patients at the centre have inquired about the calendars, which will be on sale at the centre's flu clinic later this month.

Press coverage at the Preston Citizen. The calendar is only available in person at Ryan Medical Centre.

Barely There -- Take II

Getting your kit off is becoming an annual event for Massey third-year veterinary science students. For the second year, students have stripped for charity to produce a 2007-2008 calendar called Barely There – Take II. ...Ten per cent of the proceeds of the sales of the calendar are going to the New Zealand Wildlife Health Centre, which treats ill and injured native birds, reptiles and mammals.

Available at the official site of the Massey University Vet Student Calendar. Press coverage at Scoop.

Posed for the Cure

The 11 women - all in their 60s and 70s, all grandmothers, all living in the same neighborhood off Jordan Creek Parkway - had met each other within the past couple of years. ...Two of the women had survived breast cancer. One had a son who survived breast cancer. Another had an aunt who'd survived. A fifth had a sister who'd survived breast cancer as well as a mother and grandmother who had died from the disease.

Then, about a year ago, came a bright idea.

COST: $15 per calendar and $1.50 shipping for each of the first five ordered, or $9 shipping for six or more. SEND CHECKS TO: Calendar Gals Cancer Fund Inc., P.O. Box 7129, Des Moines, IA 50325. E-mail:

Men on a Mission

Mormons Exposed is a new brand launching a forward-thinking product - a steamy 2008 calendar featuring twelve handsome former Mormon missionaries who have dared to pose bare-chested in the first-ever Men on a Mission calendar. Usually seen riding their bicycles and preaching door-to-door, the calendar celebrates these missionaries' great looks and beautiful bodies, as well as the amazing stories of service of these deeply spiritual men.

The Men on a Mission calendar will benefit a variety of worthy causes. Each missionary will have the opportunity to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the calendar to a cause in the area he served. Some of the charities supported will include the Red Cross, Salvation Army and Care for Life.

Napa Uncovered

Members of the Napa Valley's farming community in California are showing their green thumbs and quite a bit more - in hopes of raising money to protect the valley's rich agricultural resources.

The farmers, all men, have stripped for a 2008 "Napa Uncovered" calendar.

They are following in the nude footsteps of a number of similar fundraising calendars and hope to draw attention to the issue of dwindling farmlands.

X-Rayted (Bedford Hospital Radiology)

Hospital radiologists are exposing themselves in an X-ray-ted charity calendar. Nurses and support staff at Bedford Hospital have invited patients to "see us as we see you" to raise cash to improve visitor amenities. Twelve workers assumed various poses for the £8-50 calendar, which is selling in the hospital shop.

Sister Maxine Gilbert - Miss January - said posing nude was "nerve-wracking" and added: "We certainly now appreciate how our patients feel when we ask them to get undressed."

Ladies of the Mon

Sally Stephenson is probably the last person you'd expect to strip down to her skivvies in broad daylight and smile seductively for the camera. After all, the longtime Monongahela resident, who taught instrument flying to male pilots in the Navy during World War II, is a professor emeritus in sociology at California University of Pennsylvania. Oh, and did we mention she's 84?

..."I only said yes because I thought it would never go."

All profits from the sale of the calendars, which will be published in mid-July and cost $10, will go to the Monongahela Area Historical Society. They will be available in local stores, as well as on the city of Monongahela's Web site,

Top Shots: Women of Professional Golf

This is a 2007 calendar, but it's back in the news lately because one of the golfers, Nikki Garrett, is suing Zoo Weekly magazine for defamation and breach of copyright. Apparently Zoo Weekly, a "ladmag", not only printed the accompanying picture without permission (oops), but suggested that Ms Garrett was the kind of woman who would want to appear in Zoo Weekly.

Buy it from, if you can. (It's officially sold out, but still available as a premium with purchase of Fantom golf balls.) See also Sydney Morning Herald (and again), Fox Sports, World of Golf, Golfblogger, If all you want is pictures, well, I'm torn. I should encourage you to support the charity rather than mention the Golf-babes blog, where most of the photos can be seen for free if you search for them.

Calendar Girls Get Dressed

Naked librarians. Naked folk singers. Middle-aged village women posing nude. As for the anything goes as long as it's going to charity, thirteen of Britain's top topless models have said enough is enough.

With tongue in cheek humor, the models hold that modeling nude should be left to the professionals.
So, in a classic tipping of a sacred cow, the models have decided to put out a calendar of their own, only no one will be taking off their clothes. Instead, the models, who will be bucking the current calendar charity trend of scantily-clad amateurs, strike a professional pose fully-clothed in Calendar Girls Get Dressed For Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

...According to photographer Stuart White, "I wanted to let the glamour girls make fun of themselves. Their normal image is all to do with partying and the high life, which is why all the portraits show them finding their housework difficult."

It doesn't quite fit the stated purpose of my list, but really, how can you resist? From The Cancer Blog. Buy the calendar at Lulu.

Aktkalender 2008 Berlin

A tough Berlin suburb hopes to improve its image with a nude calendar... "Everyone is different — all are the same" is the slogan behind the campaign for a calendar that includes 28 pages of photos of the district's young people posing "totally nude and unstrained, while conscious of their natural environment and their social sphere".

Story from The Age. Buy the calendar from Aktkalender 2008 Berlin.

Men of Auction

Do you ever find yourself basking in the soft TV glow of New Hampshire Public Television's annual auction, ogling the volunteers and struggling to put out of your mind the illicit question: Just what do they look like naked? Well you, whoever you are, are in luck.

From the Concord Monitor. Buy the calendar from NHPTV. (Calendar runs May 2007-May 2008.)

A Chance for Rosie

Two reporters and a photographer from the Stroud News & Journal have dared to bare all, posing naked for a calendar to help raise funds for a six-year-old autistic girl.

From Hold The Front Page and This is Gloucester. See a television reporter cover the shoot, and almost become, er, involved, from 5 News. Buy the calendar at A Chance for Rosie.

Beverley Rugby Club

"The players of Beverley Rugby Club are baring all for the club's 2008 nude fundraising calendar.

"The men of Beverley Rugby Club exposed their talents both on and off the pitch for the club's first nude calendar. The lads from the East Yorkshire club braved this summer's terrible weather to pose for the calendar which will be released in November and it is hoped that the calendar will raise much needed funds for the club."
