A group of tattooed moms behind a pinup calendar raising money for charity in Texas have had its proceeds thrown back at it after being called too sexy for the chosen nonprofit.
The 32 "unconventional moms," part of a 700-member group called the Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas, hoped to share the proceeds of their two-year calendar with the Children's Advocacy Center in Denton.
Courts Griner Photography / The two-year calendar features just a small portion of the group's 700 members.
"The money was raised with a pinup calendar that could be perceived by some as sexual in nature, and our Children's Advocacy Center's mission is to provide justice and healing for children who are the victims of sexual abuse," said the center's Executive Director Daniel Leal in a statement.
To some of those hardworking mommas turned models, they described themselves as "appalled" and "disappointed" by the charity's decision — and perception of their photos.
