Calender of naked seniors created to raise money

October 30, 2011 by , filed under: Senior Living 

Old age has not stopped the elderly models from having fun.

A calendar of naked seniors has been created by residents of a Pennsylvania nursing home to raise funds for a new bus.

The women pictured in the calendar are hoping to raise $58,000 by Christmas and want to appear on the David Letterman show to push forward their cause.

Violet Montgomery, 82, leader of the fundraising initiative, said: “Celebrate life with humor and that is exactly what we have done.”

Poetry has been included alongside the photographs of the participants and the calendars have proved so successful that a second printing of a thousand items is under way already.

A Quote about Aging

"A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture." - Abraham J. Heschel
