North Texas Charity Turns Down Donation From Group of Moms

The Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County (Texas), a charity that investigates the sexual and physical abuse of children recently rejected a donation from a group of mothers, because they believe the calendar they sold, with pictures of the mothers, was sexually suggestive.

The group of mothers called themselves the Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas. They decided to sell a calendar with pictures of members of the group in fashions from the 1950’s. Members of the groups say they love good causes and tattoos. Stacy Willingham, a spokesperson, said she expected the group to raise $3,000 to $5,000 from the sale of the calendars. She added her group was surprised the get an e-mail declining to accept the donation, adding she was disappointed and appalled by the rejection.

Daniel Leal, the executive director for the center, however, said someone might look at the pictures and take them out of context. He called it a pinup calendar and said some people might perceive it to be of a sexual nature.
