Update on Oct. 28, 2010: Although this post features 2010 calendars, some of the companies, organizations and people noted have 2011 versions available now; the links have been updated to point to the new calendars.
Still looking for that perfect calendar for the coming year? I have a few more suggestions, starting with this calendar from Men and Cats. Sales benefit PUPP, an organization with the tag line "helping people by helping pets." Update on Oct. 29, 2010: There's no 2011 calendar available at this time; I don't know if one is planned.
I know many of my readers are fans of Kiva, the organization that helps individuals make micro-loans to low-income entrepreneurs. Now Kiva has a calendar.
Lily Jane Stationery has a nice weekly planner; 10% of the proceeds go to benefit the March of Dimes. Update on Oct. 29, 2010: There's no 2011 calendar available at this time; I don't know if one is planned.
And finally, photographer Michele Taras has her 2010 What I Want to Be When I Grow Up calendar. In an e-mail, Michele told me: "The calendars are selling one for $15.00 and 2 for $20.00 - all the proceeds to go to SickKids hospital. The months do have days with a good section to write what you need to do for the day." [Photos posted with permission.]
