Andalusian Arts has put out its 11th annual 'Longing for the Divine' calendar. As winners of multiple Calendar Marketing Association awards, a first for a Muslim calendar, they make perfect gifts for your Muslim or non-Muslim friends. The calendar features breathtaking photos from the Muslim world, dates from the Islamic and Gregorian calendars, and inspirational Islamic quotes. Over 135,000 copies have been sold even in mainstream venues such as Borders and Calendars.com. See images from the 2012 calendar here and the testimonials below.
New Islamic Directions and Andalusian Arts have teamed up for this exciting calendar campaign initiative. If you go towww.AndalusianArts.com/nid and place an order, you'll get a $4 discount on your calendar, a price you won't beat anywhere else online. But that's not all: up to $2 will be donated to NID for each calendar purchased. The more calendars you order, the bigger discounts you get, and the more money donated! Here's a breakdown of the discounts you'll get with this special offer.
*Different prices will apply to orders outside the USA.
Bulk Orders for Your Group
Many mosques, MSAs and businesses order in bulk to sell or give as gifts. Calendars cost $6 each when you order at least 25 copies. To make it even easier, you can pay 30 days after receiving your calendars. Calendars sell easily at Friday prayers, Islamic schools, and social events. You can also sell them for charity. Try selling the calendars for $20 each, giving $10 to Somalia's hunger victims or any other cause.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for bulk orders.
Free Greeting Cards for One-Time Donations
New Islamic Directions is striving to ensure self sustainability and support its work by raising funds. This support helps us to budget, hire staff, and sustain operations to further the spread of Islamic knowledge. On your calendar order form, choose to make a one-time donation to NID. For every $5 donated, you will receive a free Andalusian Arts greeting card. Greeting cards feature the same award-winning photographs that have been featured in the calendars and can be used for any occasion with friends and family.
