    The calendar was started by Philip and Shannon Kirkman, the creative duo behind Longshorts, who wanted to capture lesser-seen aspects of cab drivers and their lives.

    Featuring "12 of the city's most scintillating and good-humored yellow cab drivers," the calendar gives us a glimpse of New York's finest off the clock...

    And it's not just for kicks and giggles — the calendar fundraises money to help immigrant families.

    The calendar raises money for a social service organization known as the University Settlement, which provides basic services to immigrants and families.

    And the12 drivers featured in the calendar came to New York from seven different countries themselves.

    And according to the New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission, immigrants make up to 96% of taxi drivers in the city.

    Philip and Shannon Kirkman first started creating calendars in 2013...

    And have raised more than $60,000 with the New York City Taxi Drivers calendar over the years.

    So there you have it, folks: you can't go wrong ringing in the new year with these great pics and a great cause.
