It's that time of year when we need to start designing the Hancock Wildlife Foundation (HWF) calendar for 2016. For that we need a volunteer who knows how to do this on a computer. The photos that will be sent to HWF for consideration will be scrutinized by David Hancock who will then select the ones he wants the calendar designer to use.
In the past we were fortunate enough to have one of our members, who is a designer, donate her time to produce the 2011 - 2014 calendars and they were beautiful. Last year she had to retire from this volunteer project and someone else volunteered who did not have a PC. Therfore, at the last minute, David Hancock had to hire someone and the cost of producing the calendar made it less than what we would call a "fundraiser". As beautiful as our calendars are, if they do not bring us in a profit then it is unfair to ask those involved to put in the hours to produce it.
We also are in great need of a professional fundraiser to volunteer their time to help with fundraising at HWF this year. We are now in our tenth year of streaming the eagle web cams and our forum admins and mods have run out of ideas. Our expenses always far exceed our yearly costs so we are in great need of attracting some major funding. However we also need ideas for smaller campaigns as well.
If you can volunteer to design the calendar or help with fundraising please email firstname.lastname@example.org
