Women who suffer from alopecia are still beautiful.
Alopecia is a condition in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles, sometimes creating chronic baldness.
To raise funds for alopecia support, a UK organization called PrettyBald has created a charity calendar featuring 12 nude women of a variety of races.
All but one are bald. Proceeds from the calendar, which costs $16.15, will benefit Alopecia UK.
The women behind the calendar want fellow alopecia sufferers to know that the condition shouldn’t stop them from socializing or taking the world by storm.
Victoria Short, one of the calendar’s organizers, said,
Many people I have met really struggle with the condition and it becomes a barrier to doing what they want and being who they want to be.
The images, which feature the women relaxing in the country, are meant to be taken lightheartedly.
We may not be supermodels, but the shots have come out really well and I’m hoping a lot of people will buy them and enjoy having them on their wall.
