B Calendar

So I know it's kind of late to mention this [Feb…] but how cool would it be to collect pictures from Forum members & create a Basenji calendar?!? I just have been looking through the member gallaries & find so many beautiful basenji pictures that (IMO) look much better than the ones in calendar I [almost] bought online last month.

Would people be interested at all in something like this?

We'd obviously have to pic out the photos to use for every month & would have to look into how much one would cost. I know they are less expensive if you order a large amount. Then the extra money may be able to be donated to BCOA or BRAT?

Just a crazy idea since it's Tuesday & I'm bored at work :p

BRAT actually does a calendar.. here is the info..

The 12 pictures below received the highest number of votes by BRAT volunteers via on-line voting in this year's calendar contest and are featured in the 2008 BRAT calendar.
We are now taking orders for calendar purchases!
Calendars cost only $13.00 each, including shipping.
The calendar project is our biggest fundraiser of the year. All of the net proceeds from the project go directly to the help the dogs.

here is the link for more info, pics, and to order one..

I would be in support of a calendar where the proceeds are donated to the Basenji Health Endowment. If members of the forum are interested, we can research printing costs and have a photo contest to select which photos will be used.

I think that's an excellent idea and I would support that as well.

Yes I like that idea 🙂 Let me know if I should start some research! 🙂

Great Ideas!

Please private message us with any type of ideas for commercial or non-profit activities associated with Basenji Forums community.

We are currently working on setting up a store where you could purchase Basenji Forums related merchandise including photo calendars and tshirts.

Thank you,

I would also support that idea:D

I think a calendar with the proceeds to the Basenji Health Endowment would be a great idea…. It could be done on Cafe Press and then there would be no inventory needed

Cafepress is pretty expensive, although they have a lot more products to choose from compared to some other similar online print shops.

Since Nina has volunteered to do some research on what our printing options might be, I think we should take her up on it. 🙂

I know I use winkflash to print out all my digital prints. You can upload prints & create calendars on their website for only $10-17 each (depending on the size) & then add another $3 for shipping.

Please PM us your findings and suggestions.

Shortly we will announce Basenji Forums community photo voting contest. Most voted photos will go into the Basenji Forums calendar and screensaver.

Thank you everyone!

I think BCOA is doing a calendar for 2009…pretty sure I read that on their website...the theme is puppy pics and the deadline is end of March.

Pat, seeing as you are a board member...do you know where the proceeds from that will go or could you find out?

I am available to help in any way the admin sees fit 🙂

i'd definately buy like 10 and give them out for christmas or something everyone needs a good calendar.. 😃

you can get 100 in color for $748.99
so thats like $7.50 a piece, if you sell them for 15 + shipping, you'd be donating $750 to the Basenji Health Endowment

I agree… and yes Cafepress is more expensive, but unless someone can afford to pay up front and carry the inventory and do all the mailing, it is an option. We have run into this many times especially when we did the BCONC fund raiser for the stuff toys (which by the way, Brindles are still available)...
And it was not "fun" worrying about all the shipping...

So many wonderful pictures, It may prove difficult picking just 12.;)

Some sort of selection process would have to be decided on.

I've used forums that have a voting feature, I don't know how we do it here.

2 Calendars perhaps…...puppies and adults????

Just some thoughts ladies and gents........carry on.:D

Voting would seem to work best. Most people would be happy then.

Me too!!!

Okay…that apparently is too short to be a message!

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
