15 Dec 2018 Baby calendar benefits The CALL
by Brittany Gilbert
Glover Fitness and Jordan Easley Photography are teaming up again for the Third Annual Baby Calendar fundraiser for The CALL. This unique collaboration started when the two business owners realized the opportunity they had to make a difference.
“After meeting Jordan and learning about her photography talents, I knew we could combine forces and do some good,” said Maggie Glover, owner of Glover Fitness. “The CALL’s mission is something we both feel strongly about, so it was a perfect fit. The mission of the CALL is ‘to educate, equip and encourage the Christian community to provide a future and a hope for children in foster care in Arkansas.’”
The process is simple. Maggie advertises to the ladies who come through her gym, and anyone interested in having their baby on the calendar signs up. A drawing is done, and those who are chosen create the setting for their month and bring the decorations for the photoshoot. Jordan, a professional photographer, also donates her skills and time to the project. She captures stunning shots of the babies and ensures the quality is top notch. Featured on each month’s picture is a fact about The CALL or about fostering and adopting in general.
These ladies are the heart and soul behind the project, however, it also wouldn’t be possible without local sponsors. The UPS Store was the first to jump on board, donating all 150 calendars that were sold the first year. Since then, The UPS Store continues to print 150 calendars for free, and local sponsors donate to cover the cost of printing more:
- Wiest Chiropractic
- First Service Bank
- Saxion Team of Remax Realty
- NRG Insurance Group
- Pediatrics Plus
- Westport Dental Associates
The calendars cost $15. All proceeds go to The CALL. Calendars can be purchased at Glover Fitness, 1127 Front St. in Downtown Conway.
