Fight Pancreatic Cancer with the Official GTPlanet 2011 Automotive Calendar

December 23rd, 2010 by Jordan

The GTPlanet Forums are home to some incredible real-world photographic talent. Last year, we tapped in to that talent by putting together a calendar filled with some of the best automotive shots our members have taken throughout the year. Today, I’m proud to unveil GTPlanet’s official 2011 Calendar, available now for $25. I am even more proud to announce that all proceeds will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, funding private research, patient support, and raising awareness of this horrible disease.

You may recall my brief blogging hiatus earlier this summer, which was actually prompted by the loss of one of my closest family members to pancreatic cancer. I saw first-hand how quickly it can painfully destroy the lives of even the healthiest among us in only a few months. I want to do all that I can to help fight it, and I hope you do, too.

In addition to all of the calendar sales, between now and December 25th at 11:59 EST, 100% of all revenue generated by GTPlanet Premium subscriptions will be donated to pancreatic cancer research. As a Premium subscriber, you’ll be able to enjoy the site ad-free along with many other perks. Upgrade your account in just a few minutes right here (no PayPal account is required). If you’re already a Premium subscriber, now would be a great time to give a subscription as a gift. Just click anyone’s username in the forums and select “Give GTPremium” to upgrade their account.

Thank you to everyone in our forums who helped organize this year’s calendar, thanks to all of our photographers who have graciously donated their work for this cause, and thanks to all of you for your continued support. Have a great Christmas!

    Good stuff Jordan!

  2. Porschedrifter

    This is awesome, this really hits home with me, as my Mom was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer over the summer.

  3. Just to update that I have received the calendar today. The package is wonderful for the best protection. THe quality of the calendar is top notch!! I love it !! Thanks!!

  4. PanzerFaust

    Ordered the calendar, great cause.

    Ordering premium life time aswell although I do realise it’s ‘too late’. I just got home today from christmas with relatives. I’m sure it will do some good for this great site instead!

    Cheers!

  5. Ordered calendar yesterday..I love cars and I wish to extend my love to help.
    Good cause, Jordan.

  6. This is to help the Swaz…

  7. As its a good cause its the perfect time to get a subscription, I’ve been meaning to for a while so this just made me want to pay for it now as the money will go to helping people in future.

  8. What a great cause Jordan, so sorry to hear of your loss and will definately be supporting. Merry Xmas to all from Sydney, Australia. Peace. : )

  9. Madman Apex

    i wish i would have known about this before-hand i could have shared some photos that i have… hopefully for 2012 i can have some photos of mine included.

  10. OmIpotenceZERO

    What you are doing is very humane and great Jordan. I had a brother, he passed away because of cancer. He was my only brother, so this means a lot to me. I’m going to save up very soon and participate in this great cause. And for those who say it’s expensive, remember, the main purpose isn’t the calendar, it’s the cause. And when it makes a difference in other people’s lives, then that is a priceless gift that you are giving by simply paying 25$.

  11. GasolineJunkie

    I wish I would’ve saw this before Christmas. I would’ve bought some for gifts. I did buy one though for my office.

    Thanks for doing this for PC. I’ve just lost an aunt to this terrible disease a few months ago and have lost another one some years ago. All cancer is bad but I’ve never seen anyone suffer as much as they have. I am sorry for loss, Jordan.

  12. CaliBoy1990

    Anyway, I don’t have a ‘verified’ PayPal account so it looks like I’ll be missing out on the donations……. =(

    Ah well, good luck anyway. =)

  13. Definitely a worthy cause, great idea!

  14. Detroitbb

    It’s a great cause!

  15. I’ve been gathering some friends, and I’ll be ordering 10 of these babies within the next few days.

    It’s really a very high quality product with some great work from many contributing members, a must-have if you’re an auto fan, and the cause more than justifies the purchase.

    BTW, thanks for putting this announced on the front page, Jordan. It will certainly have A LOT more visibility and will surely exponentially increase the money gathered for the cause.

  16. FlareKR

    This is great Jordan, a lot of my family members have died of cancer and my grandmother has pancreatic cancer right now. If I can get a hold of $25, I’ll defiantly donate and buy a calender, it’s just that times are really though right now.

    • I’m sorry to hear about that – enjoy every moment that you can with your grandmother this Christmas. Even if you don’t have $25, you can still donate any amount you want directly to PanCan. It may be nice to give a donation in your grandmother’s name as a gift to her, for example.

  17. I’d gladly buy just for that cause. And I intend to :)

  18. COOLfiat

    That is a bit expensive don’t you think, Jordan? Maybe 10 bucks? Dude, I know it’s a great cause, but I’ve never seen a calendar for 25 dollars.

    • I wish we could sell them for $10, but it’s not that simple. These calendars are very low volume – they’re printed “on demand” as you order them by RedBubble, who also handles payment processing and shipping. As such, they “charge” me $20.90 for each calendar sold. I only get to keep $4.10 from each sale.

    • researchALLwars

      ..oh don’t even worry about those extra few fiat dollars, Mr. coolfiat. Cause we all know that they are, well… fiat.

      Buy the calender. It’s worth more than a few greenbacks.

  19. infamousDee

    This is great, although I can’t help thinking it would be a whole lot better if all the images were from GT5. :/

    • That would be great, but GT5 Photomode images are the property of Sony Computer Entertainment and can’t be sold or used commercially by anyone else.

  20. Christian

    This is a great cause. My mom has panc problems (not cancer) but still, a great cause

  21. scooter1265

    I’ve been pondering on a Premium Membership, and that Calendar is pretty cool. But dropping $75 isn’t in my budget right now. Maybe I’ll get some money for Christmas and that can go towards it.

    As for your loss, I’ve also lost a loved one to cancer. And I’m certain that everybody here has either lost or known somebody who had cancer.

    Great cause, hope it works out for you.

    • scooter1265, it’s $25, or €20 if you’re in EU. :

  22. speedthrill

    just ordered one too.
    For a great cause, a great action!

  23. madaz75

    Calendar Bought, and Subscription obtained.

  24. I bought one! This is a great cause. I’m sorry for your loss. Hopefully the money raised from this will be put to good use.

  25. Touching actions, Jordan. May all be well in this season and throughout next year.

  26. Chris Pine

    Roadhouse!

  27. I have had Pancreatitis … very painful and very dangerous ( mortality rate is high )…
    Be careful with alcohol and high cholesterol level, really !!!

    • CaliBoy1990

      I hope you’re okay now……….how long did it take to treat?

  28. this disease is the most i fear..

  29. Really great stuff Jordan, keep it up!

  30. I’d be happy to support that network Jordan, but I am uncertain if the calendar will ship to Europe. Can you shine a light? Thanks and much luck with your good actions :tup:

    • Speedster502

      It does ship to Europe, I ordered one last year and it did arrive, but if you ordered now I wouldn’t expect it to arrive until the first few weeks in January. But the wait is well worth it as the quality is far, far more superior to any other online custom calendar service.

  31. GTP_V8SuperCars

    Great idea and will look into picking a copy up for my donation.

  32. Jakemania

    This is a for a great cause. I’m sorry again for your loss, I did not realize that this was the cause. Hope it turns out very successfully!
