Today (July 1st) is the day!

Post by Olesia711 » 01 Jul 2022, 16:39

Today is the big day, you can now start submitting your favorite pictures of your EPI pet to Susan (and Peanut) at " EPIpics0059@gmail.com " for the upcoming 2023 EPI calendars.


Please feel free to take and submit as many pictures as you’d like of your EPI companion. The pictures can be funny pictures, beautiful poses, action shots, pictures with family, friends, selfies or even just playing with other canine/feline/or other critter friends.

And as always, we will honor those EPI companions that we have had to sadly say goodbye to. Each pet that has passed will have one calendar month dedicated to them in one of the EPI calendars as their Memorial page.


Susan’s “Peanut” will be checking the picture submissions when they come in, so please…when emailing your pictures:

1. include your first & last name and your pet’s first name
2. for memorial pictures, please also include beginning and ending dates
3. email your pictures as attachments
4. pictures need to be good resolution, (at least 300kb). Pictures taken with cell phones and cameras are usually high enough resolution, however, pictures downloaded from FaceBook accounts most likely will not be accepted as their resolution is not high enough.
5. Calendars will be ready mid-October to order directly from the calendar store. As in the past, you can first view all the calendars on the Epi4Dogs “EPI Products” page Epi4Dogs | EPI Products | Managing EPI | Non-Profit Educational Resource & Forum
and we will provide the direct link for you to order your calendar directly from CreatePhotoCalendar.

Calendar cost is $28 per calendar + shipping cost.

All net donations from these calendars will go in their entirety to our 501c 3 public charity organization: The Epi4Dogs Foundation, Inc.

A full accounting of the calendar fundraiser will be posted on the Epi4Dogs website. As in the past, we will continue to allocate calendar donations completely to EPI Research and EPI Awareness and we will continue to distribute all donations in the same manner.

Zero dollars go to administration fees as Epi4Dogs is a 100% volunteer organization.
