In Our Own Skin

Friends For Animals Humane Society, Burke County NCA few (16) local gals (and one guy) opted to show their support and their skin for Friends for Animals by stripping off their clothes and getting real! Friends for Animals is releasing an 18-month (January 2012 - June 2013) calendar ($20. per calendar) featuring Burke County residents and rescued pets to raise funds for the FFA Humane Society of Burke County as well as to support the new community spay and neuter program for low income families, REASON.
Order it from Friends For Animals, above. See also their Facebook page, and the Morgonton News Herald.

I have to say I really love the cover.

Shirts Off Their Backs

Volunteers Strip For Homeless Pets - KSATTwelve volunteers of the Bulverde Humane Society have taken a daring move and are literally giving the shirts off their backs to raise money for homeless animals.
The women have posed topless in a 2010 calendar that is described as not only the first of its kind in Bulverde, but possibility in the whole state of Texas.
The KSAT link features video of the story, and includes some images from the calendar itself. I don't see anything about it on the Bulverde Humane Society page, but then it was last year. See also My San Antonio, WMTW, YouTube.

Salisbury City Belles

Salisbury City FC Supporters Club - City Belles Charity CalenderThe 'City Belles' calendar has come about following my [Suzie Iles] breast cancer diagnosis in February 2011. Beth Doyle and I were having a cup of tea and joking that we should do a WI style calendar but as Whites fans, it should have a football theme. Stuart Cannell offered to do the design work and the mad idea slowly became a reality...! Four other brave ladies agreed to reveal all for the cause and the City Belles were born! I was very lucky, and thanks to the staff at the Pembroke Suite, the Breast Care Sisters, the surgeons at SDH and the radiotherapy team at Southampton General, I am now through my treatment and on the road to full recovery. The calendar is my way of putting something back whilst also raising money for the Whites and the Stars Appeal Pembroke Unit Fund.
Order at the above link. See also the Salisbury Journal.

Harlow Walking Group

Ramble group ladies take a walk on the wild side for charity | Harlow StarCHEEKY Harlow ramblers found themselves really out in the open when they agreed to strip off for a naked charity calendar.
Despite starting initially as a joke, the 14 women from the Harlow Walking Group were all eventually persuaded to undress for the tasteful Calendar Girls style calendar to help raise money for the Harlow Fields School.
"It was my idea," explained 73-year-old Sheila Cleary of Hawkenbury. "We were walking one Friday talking about fundraising events we could do and I said we should do a calendar like those calendar girls.
"Despite laughing at first, everyone was surprisingly enthusiastic about the idea and eventually we decided well why not – much to our children’s and grandchildren’s disgust!"
There doesn't appear to be any way to order one other than calling them. The number is in the Harlow Star.

Cats Protection

Naked calendar to benefit Caterham cats charity | This is Surrey
Next month, Caterham, Redhill and East Surrey Cats Protection launch their risqué 2012 calendar in the hope of raising hundreds of pounds for the area's mistreated moggies.

First in was telecoms engineer Jean Bailey, 44, of Huddlestone Crescent, Merstham.

The volunteer Cats Protection welfare coordinator said she had some last-minute nerves and added: "I arrived thinking, 'I'm not going to get my pants off for anybody – the pants are staying on,' and I did decide I wanted to do a back shot. I wasn't sure about full nudity.

"But when I was there I thought 'what the hell'."
That seems to be a common attitude among reluctant calendar models. And they usually end up having fun.

Naked Jennifer Ellison breaks wrist in bizarre piano accident

Naked Jennifer Ellison breaks wrist in bizarre piano accident -

I don't know what's so bizarre about a falling piano. It happened 30 minutes before curtain for Wednesday's performance of the touring production of "Calendar Girls," which if you're reading this blog you should darn well know what it's about. Now Ms Ellison knows that "catch that piano" works about as well as you would think it would.
But she was back on stage the next night, wearing a bright pink cast. And, presumably, not much else.

In Bed with the Nightshift

The Nightshift Blog Week 60: Laura Keenan
Well the last two weeks have been very glamorous and exciting, as you’ve no doubt heard we had the photoshoot for The Nightshift contribution to the STV Appeal 2011...aaah yes the charity calendar aptly titled “In Bed with the Nightshift.”
I’m not gonna lie, I hate getting my picture taken, when they said they wanted me in nightwear I was less than keen, but then they told me what the appeal was all about and I gladly let them remove the metaphorical gun from my head! Now, I know it seems incongruous that I was willing to be dressed up like a lady of loose morals to raise money for children BUT weird as it may sound, in an effort to give Nightshifters a smile and a giggle while they raised money for a fabulous cause – that is indeed what I did! Great fun it was too!
Wait til you see the calendar! In fact, they go on sale today!!! Go straight to The Nightshift website and if you look at the middle of the page on the left hand side you’ll see The Nightshift logo and the link to buy the 2012 calendar! They are selling like hotcakes already which is fabulous as all the money raised in Scotland stays in Scotland! :D
Wait a minute, she's a television presenter and she hates to have her picture taken? Funny line of work to get into.

Cosplay for a Cause

Cosplay for a CauseCosplay for a Causes' mission is to use our love of costuming to raise money for the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist in Japan's Disaster relief aid. We are currently offering a 2012 calendar which contains international cosplayers with many never before seen photos. 100% of all our proceeds will be going to the Japanese Red Cross society.
I'll acknowledge in advance (before both of my readers write me to say it) that this project doesn't fit the stated mission of this site: Nobody gets naked. In fact, that's sort-of the point. But since I'm at DragonCon at the moment, I thought I'd go off on a tangent. You won't find cosplay done any better than this. Hey, you could meet me and visit the Cosplay for a Cause booth while you're there.
