Want to satisfy your ginger itch and give to a good cause? Then check out the Red Hot 2021 Calendar Kickstarter campaign.

"12 beautiful ginger boys get back to nature and bare all, raising awareness for testicular cancer," reads text that sits above a short video featuring British hottie Sam How walking along a rocky beach at sunset, then lying down and admiring flowers with a pensive look as s slow, techno build plays on the soundtrack.

"They are beautiful, athletic and terribly attractive. But what sets them apart above all is their freckles,'' reads a story about the calendar on the French website TÊTU. "Like every year, the Red Hot project is once again talking about it with the preparation of a 2021 calendar more inflamed than ever. Conceived by photographer Thomas Knights, this initiative tends to promote red-haired men by proving that they can be just as attractive as their brown or blonde counterparts."

The initial goal of $20,315 has been reached - but feel free to help double it. (It is currently bordering on $34,000.)


And if you feel you have the ginger look that models Sam, Arran, Andrew and Alistair have, then visit the project's Instagram page and submit a photo. Photographer Thomas Knights is looking for eight other models.

"There are very few taboos left in the world. Somehow ginger pubic hair is still one of them," says Knights about his rationale for the calendar. "It's so rare that a lot of people have never seen it, they might go through their whole life never seeing it."


The photos of the four nude models have strategically placed plants or borders placed on their privates. But if you buy the calendar, "you get to see EVERYTHING. There is no censoring inside the calendar so if you want to see the goods, you gotta buy a hard copy."

If you do, you will be giving to a good cause:"It's In The Bag," a charitable organization that offers hands-on support for men with testicular cancer in Britain's SouthWest, as well as raising awareness of the disease across the region and beyond. In 2012, the organization won the QIC 'Cancer Charity Initiative of the Year' award in recognition of the real impact its support activities have on patients' quality of life. In 2015 "It's In The Bag" won Campaign of the Year in the Bristol Post health and care awards.


"The charity maintain an 'upbeat approach' when tackling the taboo issue of mens emotional wellbeing, mental health and physical welfare in the fight against Testicular Cancer," writes the Kickstarter campaign. "With 47 per cent of British men diagnosed with testicular cancer being younger than 35 years old and 2,400 new testicular cancer cases in the UK every year, this is an urgent cause.

"So far, Red Hot has raised over £62,000 for good causes."


According to the bio on the Kickstarter campaign website Thomas Knights is a photographer, director, musician and producer. He is the Creative Director of Red Hot, the global brand redefining redheads. His music videos for the likes of Marina And The Diamonds, Willy Moon, Karin Park and Maya Jane Coles have amassed millions of views online and he's worked with many of the top fashion and music magazines including; LOVE / DAZED AND CONFUSED / VOGUE / HUNGER / iD / NOWNESS / BRITISH GQ / WONDERLAND / SCHON / INSTYLE / MARIE CLAIRE & NYLON
