Then in 1987 the group came up with an idea to use the photographs members had taken: a calendar to show off the interesting places they had visited, with holidays from around the world. In 1988, 2,000 calendars were printed, with photos contributed by returned volunteers and world travelers from across the globe. More than 35,000 were printed in 2010. In 2009 we began to branch out with new product ideas, including the ‘we all’ multicultural posters, notecards, and a Perpetual Calendar. With 2017 sales, the group has raised over 1.3 million dollars.
Funds are donated to Peace Corps Volunteer projects, local groups doing international awareness work, and to group-building for other returned volunteers.
