How would you like to do something exceptional for someone else? And what if you could use a calendar in the process? Well, not only is this possible, but by using a printable calendar you already have yourself a good head start. After all, a calendar is a practical gift – and an inspiring gift too. This article will give you some food for thought about how you can accomplish such a thing.
Recently I read printable calendar about how a women’s biker club from the Washington area (USA) called the U.S. Angels, donated free calendars to troops serving overseas. Not only did they send the soldiers photo calendars, but they also used the calendars as a fund-raiser to raise funds for injured soldiers and their families. It’s great that they can now report that… “the calendar started out as a simple morale booster, but it has enabled the Angels to expand into other charitable activities.”
To date, the U.S. Angels have raised more than $12,000 with all proceeds going to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. You can just imagine how the soldiers who received these calendars whilst serving overseas would have felt. You can take an idea like this that’s based on giving something of great value and just know it would have far reaching effects.
If contributing this way is not living an exceptional life then I don’t know what is! Of course, you could do a similar thing with printable calendars or wall calendars, with a charity that means a great deal to you. You just need to sit down and think it through. How can you help them out? What could you put on a photo calendar that would make someone’s day?
Or, how could you do a similar thing that touches people’s hearts, that makes a difference to people in another part of the world?
Indeed, this is food for thought, and something for you to consider. Using a printable calendar or wall calendar is an ideal solution that worked really well because of the practicality and personal touch to it. The U.S. Angels calendar idea is something we can all learn from and adapt in many different ways. It feels great to strive to be exceptional. Try it sometime. 🙂
