Last year I launched my first calendars - offering all profit for animal sterilisation in Seychelles. I received great feedback, so I decided to continue with this initiative.
The perpetual calendar is reusable - it has no year displayed, only months, and you can use it any year. I also left the images clear with a white border so that you can frame them if you wish!

Some countries are unfortunately more difficult to ship to. I promise that I will do my utmost to find a way to fulfil all orders. I will deliver a few copies to Seychelles next year in person.
About the Initiative
In February 2020, I visited Aldabra Atoll in Seychelles on an expedition with my partner. Two weeks without internet, phone, in the middle of the Indian Ocean. We had no idea what was going on in the world; the pandemic shocked us upon arrival in early March. Our flights were cancelled, and the countries went into lockdown. We got stuck in Seychelles for five months! I was always an animal person, and it only took a short walk on the beach to have a pack of dogs following me home. Since there was not much human interaction during this period, the beach dogs and cats became my best friends. They gave me comfort, and I gave them the much-needed love and food they were missing without the tourists on the islands.
I learned about the issues with strays and unwanted puppies often dumped on the side of the road or remote beaches. I wanted to find a way to give back to the animals, so I created a photo calendar with my images and offered all profit for animal sterilisation.
As soon as the borders opened again in 2021, I travelled back to Seychelles and handed over the donations to Pet Haven and SSPCA.
A few articles in local newspapers informed the readers about this initiative and raised awareness about the importance of animal sterilisation.
