Charity Spotlight - Calendar Boys & CALM

As January comes to a close it's time to share another good cause and charity with you. Although, it's a little late to be sharing January's Charity Spotlight it is certainly no lesser a good cause. It is in fact a very important one.

I recently came across the Calendar Boys on Twitter after a blogger friend retweeted one of their tweets, and because I'm nosy I headed over to their page to have a look. 

Calendar Boys are a group of men that met via a Slimming World Facebook group. Initially sharing ideas and support whilst on their weight loss journey, an ideal to do something for a great cause was formed. Later in the year the Calendar Boys will be releasing a 2020 calendar in aid of CALM.

CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) is a charity leading a movement against male suicide. In the UK, suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45. Sadly,  many of us know someone who's been effected by suicide.

CALM are working on opening up the conversation about male suicide and offer frontline services for those needing help and support. The Calendar Boys are passionate about supporting CALM and are currently preparing for their 2020 calendar. Proceeds from the sales will go towards the cause, but the boys aren't stopping there and kicking off raising funds for CALM on the run up to their calendar release.

To donate to their campaign head over to the Just Giving page here
