Pinups For Vets - Last Call

Last month, we mentioned about Gina Elise's project called Pinups For Vets. Gina is doing 1940s style pinups for veterans.
Over the past year, I have heard and read incredible stories about the injured soldiers returning from military service. Their hardest battles have just begun, as they attempt to recover in Veterans Hospitals all across America . I was touched by each story, and knew that I had to try to do something to help our hospitalized Vets. I came up with an idea to recreate a World War II style pin-up calendar that would have the dual purpose of raising money for programs that support hospitalized Veterans, and also serve as a GIFT for each and every Veteran, as they recover in a Veterans Hospital. - from

Sounded like a great project to me. And still does.

But she's about to wrap up the 2007 calendars. And start on the 2008 calendars.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I am getting ready to wind down the this year's calendar fundraiser project before I start the production of the 2008 calendar! Get ready! :) There are 80 calendars left. I'd like to sell them so I can make a great donation to the Veteran's Hospital! So, if you want a 2007 calendar, or would like one to be donated to a hospitalized vet or deployed military, try to purchase it soon before they are sold out. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on this.

This was my very first year doing the project and the response and support has been unbelievable. I am so grateful to each and every one of you who purchased a calendar to support this cause. I am also so grateful to the all the fantastic bloggers, Stars and Stripes, and all the newspapers for covering the story about the project to get the word out there. This project would not have been a success without you. It's a very large team effort..and we have a loyal team!

I appreciate folks that do things for our veterans. And I have the feeling that veterans would appreciate what Gina's doing, too.


  1. I think raising money for veterans is fantastic and I guess I favor the endeavor but how lewd is the calendar? It's important to remember our American moral foundation even if it is for a good cause.

  2. I didn't find the calendar lewd. Click the link (or the picture) and decide for yourself.

    I bought a calendar ... or rather paid for a calendar to be sent to a vet. If you don't want to purchase one, her Website has other suggestions for helping without buying a calendar. My February post listed some of those, too.
