Calendar results and credits

Incidentally in 2007 we also tried to add up the income from chapter-level calendar campaign. Intern Jen Pepson surveyed chapters and summarized the results. It was back in the old days of musical powerpoint – here is the music:

One feedback from that time was to such an audio-visual interpretation of the calendar’s message ahead of time. So this year we have: ♫ Sharing Food, Sharing Values ♫
Please share :lol: More substantial info on the issues touched on in the calendar is going on to this new (in progress) agri page.Please contribute to that page as well.

Interestingly it was a remark from CEHAT folks back in 1999 that motivated that first 2000 calendar of AID. Abhay Shukla told us that they would rather publish a calendar than a booklet about their work because a booklet would sit on the shelf while a calendar would hang on the wall, which they felt helped communicate their message from time to time and to visitors.
