'Pretty Bald' a nude fundraising calendar
Fundraising nude calendars which seem a very British creation, are really popular. In 2008 it was estimated that somewhere around 6000 have been made. 'Pretty Bald', the alopecia nude calendar just released in the UK has raised thousands of pounds for the UK charity Alopecia UK http://dailym.ai/1lKrasI
In 2008 The Daily Telegraph reported some research http://bit.ly/1wkmqe5 by Dr Pamela Turton-Turner, of the University of Tasmania.
Her research suggested the most successful calendars are funny, the naked bodies sanitised rather than erotic, and the public must regard the charity as worthy. She notes one of the failures was the Australian Matilda's 2000 soccer team calendar, because the images were too sexually explicit.
Did the UK calendar hit the mark? You can buy a copy for 10 Pounds from the Pretty Bald webpage http://www.prettybald.co.uk/the-calendar/ .
