Invest in ME Calendar 2012

I'm raising money for Invest in M.E. by selling 2012 calendars available to buy at Lulu. Invest in M.E. will receive £2 (or the approximate US equivalent) for each calendar sold. My dad donated the photographs, and I donated the spoons it took to format and prepare the calendar on Lulu's site. Lulu takes a commission from each sale, but I do not. Every bit that makes it into my hands will go directly to Invest in ME.

I haven't seen the finished product yet, so purchases are at your own risk until my copy arrives for me to assess the quality. But I was too excited to wait until then to post. Once I see it, I'll be asking everyone to order and spread the word. I know it's late in the year, and doing print on demand means the price is higher than I'd like for less profit than I'd prefer, but if only 50 calendars are sold, that'll be £100 raised, which is certainly more than I'd have been able to donate on my own.

This is the photo on the cover, and inside are lots of foxes, and a few other critters. I hope you like it.


  1. Great job, Happy! I can't wait to get our copies ordered and delivered and I shall think of you and all M.E. patients each time I look at it. I love that you donated the spoons to do this. You are awesome. : )

  2. I just ordered 5 of these, one for us and the others for Christmas pressies so anyone reading this must be surprised!...LOL...It was very easy to do which was nice, I don't always get easy when doing online ordering from a new place. I know nobody who is a Spoonie would ever understand that. *G* So they should be here in a couple of weeks. I can't wait to let you know how they turned out. Thanks so much for doing this. U r sew smrt! ;P

  3. Confirmation email received today that my calendars were shipped yesterday! Can't wait to see them. : )
