The Our Kids Calendar features photographs of children who have spent time in the Lismore Base Hospital Children’s Ward or Special Care Nursery. Every photo tells a story of the children, who were photographed by the highly-regarded photographer, Jacklyn Wagner.
After the photos were completed, Graphic Designer Dougal Binns from Lismore’s Graphiti Design laid-out the calendar and Shaun McGuiness from Lismore City Printery supervised the print job. When the project was finished, one set of the calendar images were individually framed and are ready to go on display in the Lismore Base Hospital.
Local Sponsors pre-booked a one month sponsorship for this worthwhile community project. The Sponsorship covers the full cost of the production, allowing all monies raised to go directly to Our Kids.
Besides the Calendar the Our Kids CD is also being launched. The ten Local Schools that participated had their songs recorded at the Southern Cross University, using the local recording talent of Brendan Waters.
The CD packaging was designed by Dougal Binns from Lismore’s Graphiti Design team, who also created the Our Kids 2014 Calendar.
“This is a wonderful idea to revisit the Calendar Kids, as many people ask how the ‘Calendar Kids’ are going?” said Our Kids Fundraising Coordinator, Rebekka Battista.
The Calendar’s and CD COMBO sales raise vital funds to buy equipment for the Children’s Ward and Special Care Nursery at Lismore Base Hospital and will be on sale after the launch at a retail price of $20.00.
