Game birds go global!
The phenomenal success of a naked calendar created in Herefordshire in aid of MAAC has made headlines worldwide!
The ‘Game Birds Calendar’ is a collection of pictures of rural beauties protecting their modesty with only the smallest of country themed items. It has been created in honour of a local man, who died in August 2011.
Organiser Zoe Hooper explains how the idea to pose naked to raise vital funds began. She explained; "Richard was a very popular and well-loved 21 year old ‘ladies’ man who lost his life tragically in 2011. Rich touched so many hearts with his warm smile and extreme zest for life. He was taken from us way too soon and will always be loved and missed by all who knew him. However, his legend lives on! It could be said that Rich had a way with the ladies and appreciated the female form, but that would be an extreme understatement!"
Zoe added; "He also loved the great outdoors and country sports, especially shooting and was always up for trying daring challenges and new experiences. ‘Game Birds’ Calendar 2013, is not only a fundraising campaign to thank Midlands Air Ambulance for their outstanding efforts to save Rich and so many others, but also a concept and an experience to capture Rich’s intense lust for life and everything he stood for."
The girls gained national coverage for their efforts and this has caught the attention of publications worldwide! Their images have so far made the news in America, Italy and even Israel.
With the calendar yet to be officially launched, donations topped £11,000 in just three days! The current total raised from pre orders is a staggering £16,000 and continues to increase every hour!
The calendar will be officially launched at the charity’s Strensham air base on Saturday, November 3 where the ladies will pose (clothed!) with the aircraft.
