Faerie Magic Baby Calendar Contest Winners

A message from ND Pro media (full service photography/award winning videography Monticello-based company).

When we set out to embark on the first ever Faeries for Babies Charity Calendar Contest we had very modest goals because we had no idea how well it would do. Despite the setbacks we experienced in our inaugural year of running this contest we have learned a lot and have already improved the process significantly for next year to eliminate every single hiccup we had this year.

We Raised A Jaw Dropping $18, 651 So Far

We initially had a goal of raising $3,750 in phase 1 and $4,000 in phase 2. We are thrilled to say we have exceeded those goals significantly raising well over $18,000 out of our $25,000 goal. We could not have done it without your participation and generosity. Thanks again to all those who have helped make this a success.

Calendar Pre-Orders

Our goal in phase 3 of the fundraiser is to sell at least 1000 calendars. If we succeeded in reaching this goal will have raised over $33,000 by the end of the year for March of Dimes. Calendars are $15 each and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to March of Dimes. If you have a store-front and would like to keep a stack of calendars in exchange for donations, please call the studio at 845-707-4061. You can pre-order your calendar by clicking here.

Our goal for the fundraiser is to raise over $25,000 and here is how we are going to do it:

Phase I
Our goal was to raise $3,750 during this phase. (150 Magical Faerie Portrait Sessions @ $25 each). 100% of collected session fees and 10% of print sales will be donated to March of Dimes. Phase I ended July 31, 2014. We raised $5,869 and exceeded our initial goal by $2,119.

Phase II
$4,000 from ND Pro Media, Inc. administrated online votes ($1 per vote). The best image from each portrait session will be put online for friends and family to donate $1 per vote with a minimum of donation of $5. The top 13 images with the most votes will be featured in the 2015 Charity Calendar. 100% of voting proceeds will go to March of Dimes.  Update:  Since our initial goal of $4,000 was reached in under a week we have decided to raise the goal to $10,000.

Phase III
$17,000 from calendar sales. We are expecting to sell at least 1000 calendars at $15 each during pre-sales through the end of the year with 100% of sales donated to March of Dimes. Calendars will be placed at local businesses and hospital gift shops. Another $2000 in calendar sales are expected through March 2015.

Calendars are available for pre-order for $15 each from the Participate link above.  100% of the proceeds will be donated to March of Dimes. 

Thank you to the sponsors of this contest and all the models who participated.
