Cute, local guys and adorable kittens join forces to create the 2013 Cute Guys and Kittens Calendar!
The idea for a calendar featuring cute guys and kittens came about when I (Pam) was surfing Facebook and saw an old photo of my friend Nathan cradling my sleeping kitten, Capo.
I just about had a heart attack from cuteness overload! Then I thought, "Wait, what if I could make a calendar of images like this so I can have a cuteness overload every day?"
BAM! Cute Guys and Kittens 2013 was born.
I recruited my boyfriend Jeff to do the photography and together we started rounding up cute guys.
Finding kittens was easy because every spring, animal shelters overflow with puppies and kittens from surprise litters (Please spay and neuter your pets!). We contacted the Humane Society of Pulaski County and they were happy to lend us kittens for our photo shoots.
Right now, we've completed nine of the twelve shoots we'll need to finish the calendar. Feast your eyes on these examples:
Where Your Money Goes
We've chosen Custom Built Calendars for our printing because they allow the most customization, which allows us to print YOUR messages on the calendars!
For our initial run of 100 calendars, each calendar will cost us around eight dollars to print. Add in shipping and tax and that's how we decided on our $900 goal.
Nine hundred dollars will only pay for 100 calendars to be printed, so if we exceed our goal, we can print more calendars, thus making more people happy all year long.
But remember: if we don't reach our goal, no one gets anything, and the kittens will be sad.
Please sponsor our project, for the kittens' sake.
(The song used on the video is "The Undo Spell" by Peter Rudenko)
