We’ve shipped off our final Box. Wrestle. Fence. Bodies. 2018 calendar, and that means that our 2018 fundraiser is officially wrapped up!
Thank you so much to everyone who modeled and helped with production, to everyone who bought a calendar or digital package, and to everyone who helped spread the word. In the end, we sold 98 print calendars and 29 digital packages, including 22 print/digital bundles. The proceeds from these sales have allowed us to:
- donate $520 directly to RainCity Housing
- fully sponsor two low-income attendees at Violence Dynamics Vancouver
- add 40 more credits to our Community Credit Pool
In addition to these tangible benefits, we’ve had the great privilege to see this project foster growth and valuable conversation in our school community and abroad. Our models took on the challenge of their first nude shoot (and for many, their first formal photoshoot of any kind) with energy and bravery, and put out some truly spectacular work. The finished product made it as far as Australia, Germany, the UK, and the United States, and we heard from people all over the world who were delighted by how positive and diverse the images were, and just how well we’d captured some of the many different ways to be strong and competent.
As far as first-time projects go, this was a huge success as a fundraiser, a community-building endeavor, and a work of art, and we could not have done it without all of you. As we look back on this crazy journey, we’re in awe of the skill and hard work we saw on display from everyone on our team, and the groundswell of support from our community. Thank you!
If you missed out on a print calendar and want to see what all the fuss is about, we do still have digital wallpaper packages available here. And stay tuned for more Box. Wrestle. Fence. Bodies. projects in the future…
