British actor Tom Hardy is a big supporter of Help for Heroes.
Apparently, are quite a few people up in arms over the “partially nude” models in this video we originally posted a couple of weeks ago. But that’s kind of the point of a pinup calendar isn’t it?
Yes, there’s currently a witch hunt afoot to root out whether members of the Utah Army National Guard and Utah Department of Public Safety provided unauthorized assistance to the 2015 Hot Shots Calendar. But that hasn’t altered our support to the project.
We are media partners with Hot Shots Calendar because of the great work they do to support the UK’s Help for Heroes as well as select US SOF charities. We’ve traveled to England in support of the calendar and seen up close and personal the great work the charity and the models have done to support UK’s wounded warriors. We ask that you continue to support these charities whether you purchase a Hot Shots Calendar or provide direct support.
Available now, the St George’s Scarf from clothing brand Pretty Green is pretty cool whether you’re a soccer fan or just want to sport the colors.
Hot Shots has partnered with Dead Legacy Clothing to offer exclusive t-shirts featuring the best Hot Shots images over the last three years. The first shirt launched is the ‘Daisy’, featuring Hot Shots Girl Daisy Watts.
Additionally, £10 (~$16) from the sale of each shirt will be donated directly to Help for Heroes which is pretty awesome!
Hot Shots Calendar has issued an open casting call (ladies only please) for the 2015 edition. The actual photo shoot will be in June, here in the US, but they are looking for models from both the US as well as the UK. This is a pretty big deal because up to now, all of the models have been British. Proceeds from Hot Shots Calendar supports such charities as Help For Heroes which offers practical, direct support to the UK’s wounded as well as the Special Operations Warrior Foundation here in the US.
Edgar Brothers currently has a bid up on eBay for a limited edition James Bond Archives Picture Book signed by Hot Shots models India, Rosie, Daisy, with a special personal message from Kelly Hall. The proceeds from the auction go in support of UK-based charity Help For Heroes.
This summer I was present during the photo shoot for the 2014 Hot Shots Calendar. As in years past, many of teh costumes were designed and manufactured by Caleb Crye, founder of Crye Precision who developed the MultiCam family of camouflage patterns. I immediately noticed a darkened variant of MultiCam on several of the garments. Turns out, it was what is new referred to as MultiCam Black. I’ve had a little chuckle to myself for the last couple of months, waiting to see if anyone would notice the pattern in the calendar. I guess the ladies’ other attributes have had the lads a bit distracted from the minutia of details like clothing.
To get a gander of the pattern in the wild hit the jump.
Additionally, the ever popular Kelly Hall signed a load of calendars to give out to the blokes rehabilitating at Tedworth House. Thanks Kelly! I know they appreciate your efforts.
Hot Shots Calendar has launched an entirely new website, updated with info on the 2014 edition of this popular calendar, proceeds of which support wounded warriors both in the UK and US. In addition to merchandise, the site also profiles the models and gives you some additional background on the project.
