So I posted on the PayPerPost Forum that I was selling calendars to raise money for the Machinski family. My 2008 Photo-A-Day Calendar has 13 of my best photos and I’m selling the calendar through lulu.com. $2.00 from the sale of each calendar will go directly to the Machinskis. I have a goal of $100 calendars to be sold so I can give them $200.00. And people at the PPP forum have been so cool. Here are some great posts that people have written to help get the word out there about the calendars.

Christine of The Passionate Ailurophile and Tales from the Ballpark and The Purrfect Website was the first person to post about this and she did it because she reads my blog and saw my call for help. Oh and because she ROCKS!

Christine wrote – It was the game that never ends… and Sometimes… – and – It even has a picture of a CAT!

My friend Mo from We’re in a Fight also wrote about and bought a calendar. Here post Pay it Forward was great.

Skeet of Skeet’s stuff wrote a great post as well titled Buy a calendar, help a family

Charlotte of Army Mom: New Jersy wrote – Help out a husband and wife with cancer

Karen of The Pond wrote – Help A Worthy Cause

And some new online friends helped out with this as well.

So far 9 calendars have been sold. I’m 91 units away from my goal. I hope that you can help. Ways that you can help would be to write a post about the calendars, buy one or donate to the Machinski family, either through my donate button (I had 3 people donate a total of $35.00 yesterday, you folks rock and you know who you are!)

My High School Reunion is November 24th and on that day I would like to present the Machinski’s with a check for $200.00 from the sales of these calendars. My goal is to sell 100 calendars by November 24th.

Can you help me do that?

Will you spread the word to all your blogging friends and family?

Here are the images that make up the calendar. Click for larger images. Feel free to use any in your posts about the calendar.

Also, it has been brought to my attention that some people would not like a calendar but would like to donate anyway, so I set up this PayPal donate button. Please donate if you are so inclined.

    I’m glad you did the paypal link for donations…I hope people take advantage of using it!! I know I’m going to-I can’t wait to get my calendar!!

    I thought I got it last night, but it was my Red Sox head rest covers for my car…no good deed in that purchase!!

  2. Drew says:

    Thanks Mo. The calendars take little while to get to you. I bought one from Mark E. and it took a long time to get to me.

  3. perros says:

    Wow, what a great cause to take part in. I suppose running a blog can really give you the opportunity to give back to the community when things like this happen.

  4. Drew says:

    Thanks Perros, looks like someone found the D-List. I hope that you would like a calendar, or would like to post about it or donate. That would be a great way to give back too. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Drew says:

    Mo,
    I totally suck. I missed the post that you did for the calendars. And Christine did a ton of them too. I hope I got them all. Where is your Xshot contest photo. I have no formal entries at the moment.

    Beautiful calendar and great cause. Good Luck, Drew :)

    Thanks very much Laurie!
