In 9 months, 100+ volunteers, 69 models, 10 hair stylists, 6 makeup artists, 4 photographers, 1 body painter, 14 locations, and 19 Portland-based small businesses and organizations got together as a community to create a 2015 body positive plus size pin-up calendar.
Still not convinced? Here are some of the cool perks you get for contributing your hard-earned cash:
For a $25 donation, you will receive a thank you card, a Pudge sticker and the Pudge PDX 2015 body positive plus size pin-up calendar. Since we will be charging $25 for the calendar alone, it pays to order early! For a $40 donation, you will receive everything listed above plus a set of empowering body positive buttons. The holidays are coming up, so consider our inspiring calendar as a great gift for one of your friends who might like to admire fat, happy people frolicking around town enjoying many of the things for which Portland is known.
A portion of the proceeds raised will go to Basic Rights Oregon, who protects the rights of fat, gay/trans*, disabled, and “othered” people. Learn more about Pudge PDX and donate to their calendar campaign over at their IndieGoGo page.
