Help create 2014 “Pin-Up” Calendar and the fight against cancer
Tracy Birdsell started the organization Love Twelve after having a lumpectomy at the age of 29. She turned her passion and profession of photography and invited other young survivors to help create a vintage-inspire pin-up calendar.
The organization’s aim is to converge art, knowledge, friendship, and the positive, supportive community of caring and healing for young adult women surviving cancer.
Birdsell is looking to make the message bigger and better. She is hoping to amplify the message and learned by shooting the first calendar how powerful the combination of photos and stories are. Stories have the power to inspire the change that is desperately needed.
Support for her Fundraiser enables the organization to travel, produce, shoot and print and ship at least 500 calendars, building organize and produce grassroots awareness through podcasts, YouTube channel, blog, and will help in shooting a documentary film. Support will also help in attending and exhibiting at trade shows, galleries, conferences, expos and cancer events, maintaining and upgrade the Web site, graphic design and other digital assets.
Everyone who donates $25 or more to the Fundaiser will receive a cop of the calendar in October.
The goal is to raise $25,000 and there is less than 25 days left in the campaign.
