Following up on the Knives, Lipstick, Liberty,… and Life post, the first-ever (as far as I know) wall calendar of New Hampshire female liberty activists is a wrap (shrink-wrap, that is)! In fact, it’s barreling its way across the country as I type, departing from scenic Great Falls, MT (I actually have no idea if Great Falls, MT is scenic, but I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt) last Thursday. Fed Ex informs me that, as of this morning, it’s… “at local FedEx facility, East Boston, MA”. FedEx had previously pointed out that Severe winter weather is causing delays and disruptions in the eastern U.S. but I’ve never doubted that they’ll get here in time for Liberty Forum; since when has severe winter weather held back New Hampshire liberty activists?! Your intrepid reporter pledges not to leave the house for the next two days until they get here (and FedEx better not try anything weak like “your driveway is a deathtrap you’ll need to come pick them up yourself”… actually I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they try that. Prepared for all contingencies.)
Each month of the calendar (which, by the way, begins in Feb. 2014 and runs through Jan. 2015, so you’ll get your money’s worth) highlights a different area of liberty activism with a gorgeous photo of some of the valiant and shockingly photogenic New Hampshire ladies working in that area. A few of the monthly themes are food freedom, privacy, drug relegalization, free currencies, legislative action… I could go on, but that would spoil the surprise of the official unveiling of the calendar at Liberty Forum. If for some unfathomable reason you can’t make it to LF, you can also buy a calendar online on the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance website (more detailed ordering instructions can be found at the end of this post).
Once again, this calendar is a fundraiser for Mrs. Jenn Coffey, a former two term NH State Representative, National Director, Legislative Affairs, of Second Amendment Sisters, and all-around badass liberty activist currently battling breast cancer. So not only can you feel good about yourself for buying one of these calendars, you should feel bad about yourself if you don’t. (Just kidding; it’s totally up to you whether or not you choose to buy one. I won’t judge. (or will I…?))
This project was a labor of love, with an awesome production team supported by a cast of thousands! OK, maybe the “cast of thousands” is a mild exaggeration, but I so rarely get to use that phrase in a sentence. Many thanks to Shire Sharing‘s Amanda Bouldin for cover design, photographer recruitment, fundraising, presales coordination, fulfillment, and probably a few things I’m forgetting; the Free State Project‘s Chris Lopez for photo solicitations, design and proofing; NH Representative Tim O’Flaherty for donating his mad photography skills and gear for the majority of the photos in the calendar; Chairwoman Eileen Landies and the NHLA for generously covering all production costs, so that 100% of the proceeds can be donated to Jenn; and all of the inspirational women who gamely posed for photos or donated existing photos of themselves. <3
