My how time flies! It’s charity calendar time again!
Every year we create a calendar and fundraise for a good cause. Over the years we’ve raised money for a broad range of amazing causes. We’ve planted trees with Ecologi, helped to fund Ovarian Cancer research, supported local charities like Tigerlily Trust and Unique Kids and Co and the list goes on! Since the very beginnings of PhotoBaby it has been an integral part of our business plan to give back to the community, and this is one of the ways that we do it.
This year our newest team member Annabel has pushed us to think even bigger and better. She has turned the calendar into a community project! We have involved a whole range of fantastic businesses from around Lancaster. Each page is sponsored by a different business and we are so excited to see what they will bring to the project.
Fund Raising for Lancashire Wildlife Trust
According to the Lancashire Wildlife Trust, the UK is one of the world’s most depleted countries on the planet. That breaks my heart, and I’m sure you must feel the same. We are bringing our little ones into this world and we need to nurture this place that we live in, ready to hand over to our next generation. With that in mind, this years fund raising will go towards the Lancashire Wildlife Trust’s rewilding projects and their work to reintroduce endangered species. Together we will be fund raising to help make our little bit of the world all the better for our growing families.
Want to Take Part?
We are on the hunt for babies! We need models for each month in charity calendar! To make the most of the sets that we have planned, we are on the hunt for babies who can sit but don’t move, or are close to mastering the art of sitting!
How the Charity Calendar Photoshoot Works
The calendar photo shoot is completely free And comes with a luxury 6×4 metallic print plus a minimum 10% off our products and packages too.
As a participant, your little one will pose for their calendar portrait, and then if you wish you can enjoy one of our regular sessions – which are usually £65! Your little one can pose on the beanbag, maybe test out our big and little beds, have a rock in the rocking chair and maybe even test out a bucket for size! It’s completely up to you!
The session comes with a luxury metallic print plus 10% off our products and packages too.
And if you are savvy with your social media you can earn even more discount!
Calendars are £15 each, but if you buy two, we will give you a third for free.
Five babies will model for each month and every baby will be in the calendar. The pages are laid out so that we have one main image and then four medium sized images. We give the big space as a thank you to the family that sells the most calendars in their month.
As an added incentive and thank you, if you manage to sell 10 calendars, we’ll give you a luxury 12×16 print of any of your images too.
If everyone that comes and takes part buys just two calendars – Christmas presents for the Grandparents perhaps? We will make a very impressive £1800 for the Lancashire Wildlife Trust. If you buy more it gets very exciting to think how much more we might raise.
This year’s theme is flowers, each month is a different flower and our business sponsors will be adding their own twist to the theme too! Each of the shoots will be styled around the flower chosen for the month.
We have asked all the businesses involved to give you a little treat. The centre spread of the calendar is going to be jam packed with special offers from all these amazing businesses – just for you! As well as getting a gorgeous calendar that will brighten the dullest of days, you’ll also be getting a whole host of super discounts – amazing!
