Calendar update

  • Wow- I started in March and it still didnt help.
    Once again behind the 8ball here.....
    And since its been awhile and we didnt do one last year, Ill start from the beginning. So.......

    Each year we do a calendar featuring the kids of T1P. The sales of the calendar helps support the fees it cost to keep T1P online and free. There's usually a theme involved and this year would be no different. All are invited and I try to get 48 kids in the calendar(4 each month). You arent required to purchase one if you chose to have your child participate but since the small profit goes to help T1P, it is encouraged.

    And now-
    The theme this year would involve looking back so what I am asking is for a picture of the a page (or something bigger like a small banner) up. In that "page" or "small banner" I would include a pic of the same child when they were diagnosed (or close to that time) Just to show how the kids have grown but still continue on. Which then means I would like a picture of the child from around the time they were diagnosed. Not looking for a hospital pic- just one from around that time. Now of course this could be years, months or weeks. Its not about longevity but more the differences each kid has endured. Make sure the pictures are large enough so that they can be printed without pixelation (Between 2-3mp- just remember web quality is much lower than print quality so while it may look good on the web, it may not print good.) The child can be holding the banner anyway as long as we can see the child clearly.

    Also, be aware of whats in the picture, just remember these are getting printed. Make sure that just the child is in the picture. No friends, parents or siblings- unless or course if the siblings are D. (although I would prefer each child have a block of their own)
    Of course the older pic doesnt need to be as high res since I will be shrinking it to place in the childs hand- Yes I will be adding a sample drawing to illustrate what i mean.

    You can email me pictures at delvec2@comcast.net
    Please do not PM them and please do not send me links to pictures online elsewhere. Its too much to keep track of and the best way to make sure everyone gets included is to have them all in one place.

    And once again the goal is to have this made up of mostly children from active T1P members here. Any spots that cant be filled I will be sending out to our social media friends at Twitter and Facebook. But again preference for ACTIVE T1P members. So dont be afraid you will be turned down if you only been here a month. If its between you and someone even if they been here from the start...if they arent active then you will get in.

    I will post samples of our past ones- (but they are in other threads in this sections. if ya wanna look) The calendars are pretty cool and offer a chance to show off the child and also show them other kids out there.

    Any questions..... ask. Oh and spots are secured once the pictures are received. I no longer have the time to be chasing people down last minute.
