They both raise money for good causes, they both feature hard working New Yorkers, almost exclusively male but that’s where the similarities end.
One is put out by the FDNY and features the sleakly oiled chests of firemen who work out for a whole year for the honor of being picked as one of the guys in the FDNY’s 2016 Calendar of Heroes. So all those really built guys are smiling and proud and delicious but it’s all in a good cause, to raise money for firefighters and their families, see video one.
The other one is a project of 2 NYC photographers who started it a few years ago and it features a group of NYC’s yellow cab drivers. These guys have not worked out, but they have immpressively hairy chests which they aproud to show off along with half lowered eyelids and sexy smiles.
The Cad drive calendar is more a fun project but also aimed to raise funds, in this case for immigrant families in NYC, which is a cause close to the heart of the primarily immigrant yellow cab drivers of NYC. See the second video which is of one of the calendar’s from a few years ago because while the 2016 one is available it doesn’t have it’s own video yet.
The FDNY has a long histyory and the cab driver’s one only a few years under its belt so far so far. But both sell well and will provoke sighs and smiles to a lot of lucky New Yorkers who get one for christmas and the sales of these calendars both go to good causes.
