Check out this Men of Mortuaries calendar image from 2008. The Good Funeral Guide Blog in the U.K., headed up by Charles Cowling, recently ran a post about the charitable calendar that made appearances in 2007 and 2008.
Obit Magazine did a fun story about the project back in 2007: OMG!! Men of Mortuaries?
The calendar is produced by KAMM Cares, a non-profit organization created by Kenneth McKenzie (Mr. June 2008). The organization places money directly into the hands of persons going through breast cancer treatment.
The money raised from this calendar helped pay for necessities such as child care costs, groceries, and other expenses that would be a hardship for some undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments. This calendar is just one example of using humor to help others cope.
I think we need to have another go-round with a fresh calendar. According to the Men of Mortuaries website, you can still get a 2008 calendar for only $3.95. Something to think about as we go into a hot August weekend…
