Looking chic on the cheap for charity

December 2, 2008

We’re very pleased to announce the launch of the official mymission2 Beat The Credit Crunch Calendar 2009 which will be sold online from the UK and the USA (but can be delivered anywhere in the world).

While homelessness is growing around the world, charities are feeling the squeeze of the global credit crunch. Here at Mission Control we are offering a helping hand to homelessness charities with the launch of this exclusive calendar.

And that’s not all! Because we are celebrating reaching 100,000 members this week we also pledge to  donate:

  • a further £50,000 to Shelter when we sell 50,000 calendars in the UK, making a total UK donation of £100,000
  • a further $25,000 to The National Alliance To End Homelessness when we sell 50,000 calendars in the US, making a total US donation of $100,000

The calendar highlights the fact that you can look fabulous even when you are on a budget and help charity at the same time. We all need to tighten our belts in the current economic climate and looking chic on the cheap is a good way to start. The models featured in the calendar are ordinary people who are keen to offer advice – serious or otherwise – on how to cope, have fun and look great on little or no cash. Professional stylists dressed the models from top-to-toe using clothing and accessories from charity and vintage shops.

Our sincere thanks go to:

View a short “behind the scenes” documentary about the making of the calendar, which includes interviews with the stylists and models.

The calendar is a fantastic and unique gift for Christmas.

Be a Calendar Girl… or Boy!

October 29, 2008

According to yesterday’s CityAM: “There’s a company out there, mymission2, seeking models for a so-called ‘Credit Crunch Calendar’, to feature ordinary members of the public who can offer advice to others on how to ‘cope, have fun and look great on little or no cash’”.

That will be us!

We’re looking for anyone who has been affected by the ‘Credit Crunch’ to appear in a calendar (in time for Christmas) to help those whose lives have been completely blighted by poverty. We’re giving £1 from each calendar sold to charity plus we’re going to dress everyone in charity shop clothes, to show how you can be chic on the cheap.

Interested? Please drop us a line at control@mymission2.com, telling us why you should appear in the calendar and be sure to enclose a pic or two.
