Boxers, ballerinas, and basketball players are all among the 18 incredibly fit participants that agreed to take off their clothes for a good cause. Photographer and former biathlete Dominika Cuda was the one who came up with the idea for the project that took one year to complete. Unlike most calendars, includes more than just 12 pictures. Instead of just giving each athlete a separate month, the author of the idea created a page personal sport planner that will allow the person to track their training progress, sleeping patterns and nutritional plans all whilst admiring the beautifully captured bodies. This calendar benefits One Year Fund, a charity that supports underfunded young athletes by raising money for footwear, clothing and equipment they need. Cuda, who struggled to find funding when she was an athlete herself, is now exited to help the younger generation to pursue their dreams. This is your daily reminder that you're good enough and you're beautiful. Make sure to gift your smile to the world a little more often and continue spreading the word of positivity.
