Blackhawks winger Bryan Bickell and his wife Amanda are teaming with a Chicago-based online pet supply company to raise funds and awareness for their work with pit bulls and helping abused children.

The company, “www.doggyloot.com”, is the exclusive seller of a new calendar–“Bick’s Pits 2014”–raising funds for the Bryan and Amanda Bickell Foundation. The calendar features photos of Bickell and teammates Patrick Sharp, Andrew Shaw, Corey Crawford, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Brandon Bolig and Ben Smith–each posing with adoptable dogs.

“We love to partner with local charity organizations and give back to the community,” doggyloot CEO Jeff Eckerling said. “Not only are we huge Blackhawks fans, but more importantly we’re huge advocates for the work that Amanda and Bryan are doing.”

The Bickells started their foundation to help raise awareness of the positive qualities of the pit bull breed and to work with the dogs to assist abused children. The Bickells’ own pit bull, Bailey, works as a “breed ambassador” for the foundation.
