Unique New Tradition to Celebrate the Winter Holiday & Christmas Season: The American Charity Calendar
Popular Danish Christmas Tradition Introduced to the United States
SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - November 6, 2008) - We are pleased to announce the debut of a brand new annual Winter Holiday/Christmas Tradition in the USA: The American Charity Calendar! (http://www.taccfoundation.org)
. The American Charity Calendar is a multi-level event, with multiple benefits, but more than anything, it is a new way to celebrate the winter holidays, may it be Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza or anything that might be your holiday tradition.
Each year, this unique, beautiful paper Charity Calendar uses the winning artwork from the TACC online art contest (http://www.tacc-art.org)
On December 1st, individuals and families can open the first numbered "window" on their Charity Calendar and find a surprise picture behind the "window." Audiences will also be treated to an entertaining daily Internet television series, "Holiday TV," (www.taccfoundation.org/youtube
) that will interact with that day's paper Charity Calendar's hidden surprise picture. New segments will be released daily for viewing December 1 through December 25 on our website as well as YouTube.com.
The TACC Charity Calendar marks the first time this tradition will be introduced in the United States of America. The Charity Calendar is modeled after a popular Danish holiday tradition that has already proven to be a huge success. Since 1962, many talented Danish artists have illustrated "The Danish Christmas Calendar" annually and at least 25 different television productions have been produced while Calendar proceeds have been donated to numerous noble children's charities.
The Calendar will be sold in major retail stores in Santa Barbara County including Borders Books, Tecolote Book Shop, Chaucer's Books, Lewis & Clark as well as on-line via http://taccfoundation.org/calendar
and amazon.com. The proceeds will be donated to Vitamin Angels in 2008 (www.vitaminangels.org)
TACC Gallery is a new free on-line art gallery (and artists' resource) that invites all young artists to publish their artwork to our website (http://www.tacc-art.org)
. The gallery will provide a rich and creative resource for young artists, like 23-year-old Jada Fitch from Maine who illustrated the 2008 Charity Calendar!
