Celebrities Pose In Pin-Up Calendar To Support Hospitalized Vets
“Pin-Ups For Vets” President and Founder, Gina Elise, is proud to announce the release of the charity’s much-awaited 2013 fundraiser calendar that features TV and film celebrities posing as 1940′s pin-up girls. The 7th annual calendar produced by the nonprofit costs only $10.00 and can be purchased on the organization’s website: www.PinUpsForVets.com.
Supporters can also purchase the popular calendars by mailing a (tax deductible) check to:
Pin-Ups For Vets, PO Box 3323, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91729.
The proceeds from the calendar sales have helped purchase new rehabilitation equipment for VA Hospitals across the U.S.
Visitors to the website can order a calendar for themselves, for a hospitalized Veteran, or for a deployed service member. Gina Elise and her volunteer 1940′s pin-up girls personally make thousands of bedside visits each year in VA Hospitals to deliver the donated calendars.
Pin-Ups For Vets is currently on a 50-state VA Hospital Tour and has as its mission to show appreciation to our ill and injured Vets in hospitals all across the USA.
In addition to boosting morale in the hospital wards, the Pin-Ups For Vets calendars are also packed into care packages and shipped to the troops deployed across the globe. The deployed troops are currently requesting calendars for their units, and the charity encourages citizens to donate a calendar or two to let our service members know that they are appreciated for their service to our Country. The popular calendars have helped our troops pass the time during their long tours of duty.
The Pin-Ups For Vets organization is also very proud to announce that Founder Gina Elise was selected as a finalist in the 2012 Spirit of the Entrepreneur Awards program, that was held on November 7 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, California. Gina Elise was chosen in the Social Entrepreneur category, and she is part of a select group of 25 entrepreneurs from throughout Southern California’s Inland Empire chosen for their outstanding entrepreneurial leadership and accomplishments.
