Even in today's digital
age, who doesn't want - who doesn't need - at least one proper calendar
hanging on an office, kitchen or bedroom wall?
As a fellow car enthusiast, why would you not want that calendar to contain cool photos of great cars?
The Kenzie Car Calendar in
support of PARACHUTE is the answer. And, you will be helping a
terrific safety charity as well.
The photos in my calendar were all taken by me; I understand how lucky I am to have driven all these great automobiles!
This is our eighth year
doing this calendar. Until now, it has been in support of SMARTRISK,
an injury-prevention charity established by paediatric heart surgeon
Dr. Robert Conn, who came to see that much of his work involved
putting the hearts of dead teenagers into the bodies of fat old
Most of those teens died as a result of accidental trauma, largely car crashes. Dr. Conn realized he could save a lot more lives - certainly, a lot more 'person-years' - if he could find a way to help keep the teenagers from dying in the first place.
So he established SMARTRISK, which over the past 20 years has run a series of educational programs throughout the country to help achieve this goal.
In 2012, SMARTRISK merged with three other safety and injury prevention organizations - Safe Communities Canada, Safe Kids Canada and ThinkFirst Canada - under the umbrella of PARACHUTE. The combined resources of these four groups will be able to get their similar messages out to a broader audience than each one could on its own.
The Kenzie Car Calendar will now be donating fully half of all net proceeds to PARACHUTE.
No need to keep it all to yourself either - the Calendar also makes a perfect holiday gift for any car enthusiasts on your shopping list. It will also remind the recipient of your thoughtfulness every month of the coming year.
