Danville/Sycamore Valley Rotarians met a young artist, Andrea, who has cerebral palsy during a distribution of wheelchairs in Monterrey Mexico in 2008. For the last 10 years, her drawings have helped raise funds for wheelchairs in Monterrey. She started producing calendars about 8 years ago. A few years ago, she started working with local Rotarians to sell her calendars for the holidays to businesses in Monterrey. Last year they printed 12,000 calendars in Spanish.
We have been chosen to distribute the 2012 calendars in english to this area. Each calendar has a profit margin of about $2.00 that will be directed toward a future distribution of wheelchairs in Monterrey through the Wheelchair Foundation. The Danville/Sycamore Valley Rotary club has gone on several trips to Monterrey since 2003 and hope to go again in early 2013.
Individual calendars are $10.00. Volume orders of 200 calendars or more are $6.00 each. Business sponsorships are also available. For more information, please contact Melanie Prole.
