Ladies of Liber-Tease is a Pin Up for Patriots-type of calendar business. It is run by Army wife Christina Cruikshank and assisted by Sara Johnson, the leading photographer. The calendars are sold to raise funds for hospitalized veterans. Calendars are also given to injured veterans and sent to deployed troops.
The group also participates in personal bedside visits to deliver gifts and show appreciation, promotes volunteerism at Veterans Hospitals, conducts morale-boosting events for military spouses, and boosts morale for deployed troops through delivery of care packages.
