It's Fundraising Calendar Season!

They're at it again in Britain, with a calendar featuring local women, being raffled off to support a cancer foundation. It's not clear how much is being bared on the calendar itself, but the raffle tickets have photos of the women's thighs -- and ask people to guess who they belong to. Here's the story in the Lancashire Telegraph.

It's quite the hit in Ribchester, apparently. (That's in the Ribble Valley, of course.)

All very reminiscent of the movie Calendar Girls, starring Helen Mirren, Julie Walters, and John Alderton. (A must-see for anyone in fundraising.) The plot involves middle-age women posing nude for a calendar in order to raise money for a local hospital.

Not that I'm suggesting anything.
