“Himalaya 2018” Nepalhilfe Beilngries’s new calendar out now

Selling a calendar to raise funds for a charitable organisation is neither exceptional nor novel. Nepalhilfe Beilngries has been selling its own calendar since 1997.

Compared with today’s print run of 10,000, the venture’s beginnings were modest indeed, featuring 50 hand-made calendars showing images from members’ collections.

This year, as in the past years, pictures have been provided by Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Ralf Dujmovits, Hans Kammerlander and Dieter Glogowski. Having these renowned alpinists scour their photo archives for motives is unusual and deserves a special mention. It also enhances the calendar’s value.

The calendar is available for 17 euros via the homepage’s calendar sales section. It is also on sale at several outlets in the Beilngries area and in Regensburg. The 43.5 by 40.5 cms calendar is made of a cover sheet, twelve month sheets and an information page. It shows impressions from the Himalaya’s majestic landscape and its culture and people.

The calendar has built up a worldwide following. At Nepalhilfe Beilngries, Werner Eisenhofer is responsible for calendar shipping. He has stuck markers in a large map to denote recipient countries, among them almost all of Europe’s nations, but also Chile, Dubai, Australia, Thailand, Georgia and Canada. Clients range from individuals purchasing a single copy to companies ordering major quantities to give away to their customers, a gratifying example, for which we extend our thanks. 

The revenue from sales of the calendar is badly needed given the resources required for swiftly proceeding reconstruction and rehabilitation of buildings damaged by the earthquakes of April/May 2015. Some of the buildings are already back in service or face commissioning in the months to come, returning them to their original purpose. At the same time, service continues at existing institutions such as the Shailgram children’s home, currently housing 42 children aged five to 18 years, or the old age home at Siddhi Memorial Hospital, themselves also requiring funds for their ongoing operation.
