Our project is the official 2015 Rugby Helps Our Heroes nude charity calendar featuring professional and amateur rugby players from around the country stripping off to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.
My name is Paul Manning and I took over managing the Rugby Helps Our Heroes project last year. This year's calendar will be the fifth Rugby Helps Our Heroes calendar and we hope that it will be a huge success as in previous years.
Why are we crowdfunding?
The aim of this Crowdfunder appeal is to raise enough money to cover the printing cost of (at least) the first run of calendars. This would mean that we would be able to give 100% of the sale price of each calendar to Help for Heroes.
A first draft of the calendar has already been produced and the files from this will form part of the rewards for the varying levels of support, along with other calendars and 'Making of' DVDs and digital files. Most of the rewards are ready to send out upon us reaching the target (that's the digital files, links to films, back issue calendars and DVDs) and the finished 2015 Rugby Helps Our Heroes calendar will be despatched on it's official launch date. In addition to the rewards listed, all backers will receive an extra reward of the video files of the trailers.
The calendar is an officially registered project fundraising in support of Help for Heroes. At time of writing (17 September) photo shoots for the calendar have already taken place at Nuneaton Rugby Club, Worcester Warriors and Loughborough Students, and the remainder of the shoots will take place between now and 25 September.
If you have any questions about the project please either message me through this Crowdfunder site or email me direct at: firstname.lastname@example.org
