We were hopelessly frustrated by daily calendars that have the same thing every single day, so last year we made a daily calendar that had something completely different every single day. Around two hundred people supported us on Kickstarter, we got written up on some blogs and all our 2015 calendar-users have been thrilled! Now we're doing it again! And it's even cheaper this time!

What kind of things will be in the calendar?

Every day is different. Some days might have trivia about poisonous plants, others might have miniature models you can cut out, fold and build. There will be poems and stories and games and finger puppets and animal facts and recipes and tiny cards that you can fold and give to your friends. We've got the best year ever planned out and it's going to be super fun but we won't tell you any more details because we don't want to spoil all the surprises.

Does this calendar have 365 pages?

Great guess but no! We're combining the page for Saturday and Sunday so there are only 6 pages a week. We did this because we only had about 313 different ideas for pages and also because we want you to do more exciting things with your weekend than look at our calendar.

Can you tell me some other details about this calendar?

Sure, thanks for asking! The calendar will be on 4.25" by 5.5" paper and it will be sent to the address that you specify during the month of October. It will be printed with black ink, have that sticky stuff on one end to keep the pages together and it will come mounted on a handy little plastic stand. Also, we're printing all the calendars right here in Oregon!

This is what our 2015 calendar looked like.

Who's making this calendar?

Brooke and Boaz! We’re both writers, and we both live in Portland, Oregon. Brooke's the creator of Sad Animal Facts and Boaz is the creator of The Pedal Powered Talk Show. You can learn more about Brooke here. And you can learn more about Boaz here.

Can you tell me more about these rewards?

Sure! In addition to the calendar, we've also created a few other special items that we'll be sending to supporters. Backers at every reward will get this very special iron-on pigeon patch:

Higher levels will also get this enamel bee pin:

If you select the Sad Animal Facts Reward level you'll also get to choose between a Sad Animal Facts tote bag or t-shirt. We're still sorting out colors and some other details but here's a sketch of the shirt: 

We'll be using the same artwork for the tote bags and we're hoping to offer a few other design options too. If you have a favorite animal, comment below and we'll try to incorporate it into one of our other designs!

Risks and challenges

We've only made a daily calendar once before so I'm sure we'll still be learning some things in the process though I think we worked out most of the kinks last year. Now we know a lot more about printing and packaging and shipping and we've built extra time into the schedule to ensure we hit all our deadlines.
