Women's History Calendar 2019 by Bonnie Fillenwarth

$836

27

I create bright and colorful paintings celebrating all the amazing women throughout history. Some of these women include Rosalind Franklin who discovered the double helix structure of DNA, Ada Lovelace the first computer programmer, and Victoria Woodhull the first woman to run for president of the United States. To view more of my work visit www.bonniefillenwarth.com

For a while now I’ve wanted to create a calendar of important dates in women’s history. These dates include birthdays, historic events, and holidays. We all love Women’s History Month in March and now you can celebrate all year long.

The Calendar: 

The calendar itself will feature my artwork from both my paintings of historic women and my “That’s What She Said” series. This is not your typical calendar with a photo on the top and dates on the bottom. This calendar is filled with all kinds of information on your favorite women and hopefully, women you have not heard of as well.

When opened, it will be 11x17 inches. It will have a predrilled hole for hanging. It will be stapled so no wires or coils take up space.

Timeline: 

During the Kickstarter campaign I will be finishing up the design of the calendar and sharing it with you.  It takes thirty days after the project ends for me to receive the funds minus fees from Kickstarter.  While I wait for funds I will be proof reading, fact checking and doing the final touches.  As soon as I have the funds in mid August the calendar will be on it's way to the printer. The printing takes about a week and I am using a local printer to reduce cost and shipping times. I am hoping to mail them out to you at the end of August or the beginning of September.

Cost:

The amount I am asking for covers the production of a small amount of calendars, shipping supplies, and Kickstarter fees.

Rewards: 

Each reward tier is for one or more calendars. If you would like more than two please add $15 for each additional calendar. (Three calendars would be $50, four for $65 and so on).

For a little extra I can personalize your calendar by writing a short message (Happy Birthday!) on the day of your choosing.  For more than two of the signed calendars please add $20 for each additional calendar.

Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

This will be my second Kickstarter campaign. As many of you already know with Kickstarter it's all or nothing. I have set aside time in July and August to get this project completed. All that is missing is the funds to make it happen.
