The Girls of the Finest are back with a brand new 2017 calendar!
Each year the talented Girls of the Finest put their costuming abilities to work to raise funds for a worthy cause by producing an amazing G.I. Joe themed calendar. This year is no exception and the 2017 Calendar drive is fully under way on IndieGoGo with just 15 days remaining!
This year the lovely ladies of Finest are raising funds for K9’s for Warriors, an organization dedicated to providing service dogs for veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, and/or military sexual trauma as a result of service post 9/11. The organization recognizes the healing power of animal therapy and how the emotional bond formed between a veteran and a therapy dog can help these brave warriors overcome the trauma they incurred while in the line of duty.
I’ll admit it– we’ve been remiss in our duties here at JBL when it comes to this project. There are only 15 days remaining to support this endeavor on IndieGoGo and this is the first time that any news regarding the Girls of the Finest 2017 Calendar Project has been featured on JBL. Ladies, I wholeheartedly apologize for that omission. Your work this year has been stellar!
Seriously folks– I’ve supported this project for the past two years and the calendars are always top-notch! The photography is fantastic, the costumes flawless, and you sense the passion that these ladies have for their work in every image. Plus, each year the funds raised from the calendar project help support our troops. A simple donation of $25.00 secures your printed copy of the 2017 calendar. Those who donate $50.00 receive a set of trading cards AND a calendar! Plus there are even MORE perks available at other financial levels!
The Girls of the Finest 2016 Calendar is fully funded! Not only that, but the lovely ladies of The Finest managed to blow past their original goal of $8,500 and have raised a total of $9,200 to produce the calendar and support the USO!
Thanks to all who donated to support the project and, to the Girls of the Finest, the staff of JBL would like to offer our hearty congratulations! You not only achieved your goal but you surpassed it!
Supporters of the Girls of the Finest 2016 Calendar can keep up with the latest project updates over on IndieGoGo.com.
That’s a fantastic total and one that the online community should be proud of. These lovely ladies have so far raised $7,380 of their $8,500 goal to help support the USO. However, their not resting on their laurels just yet– the Girls of the Finest 2016 calendar project still has 13% of their goal to go!
If you’re on the fence about supporting this project, this is the time to step forward! A simple contribution of $25 secures one printed copy of the 2016 calendar, as well as a unique postcard and trading card from the photo shoots! Sure, you could go out and buy any old calendar for the office or the Joe room for next year but wouldn’t you much rather show your support for the USO by backing the Girl’s of the Finest 2016 calendar?
However, don’t take my word for it– here are some words of encouragement from members of the finest themselves!
What a project! As we discussed previously here at JBL, the lovely ladies of the Girls of the Finest calendar from 2015 are back and are once again asking for your help in raising funds to support a worthy cause. Even better, they’re offering an amazingly high-quality 2016 calendar as an incentive for folks to donate to the project– with the proceeds going to benefit the United Service Organizations.
Last year’s project was an amazing success that raised funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. Not only did fans help the Girls of the Finest produce a terrific fan-driven G.I. Joe calendar but they also helped support a fantastic cause in the process. This year, these talented female costumers are hoping to recreate the lightning in a bottle of last year’s project and help the USO at the same time!
C’mon– it’s a win-win! Get a great calendar featuring the talented Girls of the Finest and help send some much needed comfort to our fighting men and women overseas.
