Award-Winning Nonprofit Pin-Ups For Vets Is Releasing Its 13th Annual Fundraising Calendar To Raise Money For VA Hospitals


Gina Elise, Founder

Award-winning nonprofit Pin-Ups for Vets is releasing its 13th annual fundraising calendar to raise money for VA hospitals; ill, injured, and homeless veterans; deployed troops; and military families. The 2019 calendar features 19 female veterans decked out in World War II inspired fashion.

“Fans of Art Deco will appreciate the look of the upcoming calendar that reflects the vintage glamour of this 1936 cruise liner, now permanently docked in Long Beach, CA as a floating hotel,” said Pin-Ups For Vets Founder, Gina Elise, who established Pin-Ups For Vets in 2006, as a way to honor the WWII service of her grandfather.

The 2019 calendar is officially ready for pre-order at www.PinUpsForVets.com. All 2019 Pin-Ups for Vets calendar pictures were taken by Shane Karns Photography — and let me just tell you…he really nailed it.

Beautiful Underwater NSFW Photos That Redefine Women’s Beach Stereotypes

As soon as she saw Hawaii’s freshwater tide pools, photographer Yana Toyber knew what her next project would be.

“Once I went there, the idea just hit me,” she told Refinery29. “I want to do a female-centered project shooting women I know in these tide pools.”

She went on to shoot in the ocean as well, but these serene pools are the spiritual center of her series, Sacred Waters. Out in these tide pools, “you feel like you’re on the edge of the earth,” Toyber said, adding that they’re sometimes called “birthing pools” or “queens’ baths,” due to local history and legends. According to Toyber, some people believe that women used to give birth in the tide pools, while royalty would use the pools to bathe.
