    This Small Canadian Town Just Made The Best Charity Calendar With Its Sexy Seniors

    Manitoba's Finest.

    A small town in Manitoba called Pilot Mound has come up with a genius way to raise money for its recreation centre: a calendar featuring the community's senior men in the buff.

    The models range in age from 55 to 95 and posed in locations that show off both their own professions and hobbies.

    The project, "Baring It All For The Community," was the brainchild of the rec centre's fundraising committee, lead by Ginger Collins. She told BuzzFeed Canada they got the idea from a similar calendar done in another town in 2005.

    "We really liked it and we just decided we want to do it," she said.

    "We put a callout to our community — which is about 700 people — and asked people to nominate someone that they thought was community minded," said Collins.

    And they didn't need much convincing.

    "We really didn’t have to twist anyone’s arm," she said.

    "It wasn’t about their flaws or being buff, it was about what they’ve done for the community. We worked hard at trying to get the captions to reflect their lives and their stories and here they worked and what their interests were."

    The result is 12 months of Manitoba's finest and the calendars are flying off the shelves.

    The calendars — selling for $24 each or five for $100 — already need a second run, with almost all of the 500 copies gone.

    The fellas were even inundated with autographs at a launch party and community fish fry.

    "It was very much a community inspirational moment. It made them feel really good," said Collins.

    "It was meant to be respectful as well as humorous. And it’s for all ages though there are some there that are on the border," she added, laughing.
