Humans have been fascinated with time ever since its discovery, using calendars to document its travels and to determine just how high leap years actually leap. Watch time go by with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a Girls of Craven 2012 calendar (a $20 value). Proceeds support the operations of the Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.
The Girls of Craven 2012 calendar counts down the days until the 2012 Craven Country Jamboree, taking place July 12–15, 2012, via twelve photographs of six sultry local female subjects. Spanning August 2011 to July 2012, the calendar recruits its models from a roster of the outdoor music festival's regular attendees who strut their noncubist features in two photographs each. Calendar models—chosen for their sense of fashion and festival joie de vivre—also make public appearances for promotional Jamboree events and at various festival locales. Each calendar arrives bearing unique numbers, allowing owners to register online for the chance to win two weekend VIP passes to next year's festival and avoid the usual hassle of hauling along your own red carpet. Customers can also opt to win a trip to Dreams Villamagna in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.
A platoon of perforated coupons with $750 worth of savings from calendar advertisers sashays cross calendar pages, uniting eyes with offers such as $20 worth of accessories from Wireless Age. A Jamboree-fan-dedicated page arranges photo submissions depicting festival revelry, while marked dates give reminders of ticket-purchase deadlines and the birthdays of musicians' guitars.
