There’s something special about handmade greeting cards, isn’t there? Perhaps it is the texture or the fact that someone actually painstakingly sat down to put all the elements together – all the minute details – to bring that card to life rather than a machine churning out the same designs in their thousands.

Now imagine, that these handmade greeting cards could be helping to improve the lives of some of the poorest people on this planet – young adults who have been orphaned due to disease, or even worse, genocide. Nothing could be more helpful than to give them a respectable start in life and help set them on the road to economic independence.

And then add the fact that the paper used to make these cards is recycled from office waste paper – something that would have gone to a landfill – thus giving them their green credentials.

As if that was not enough, each one of the handmade greeting cards is signed by its artist at the back so there is an instant connection with the sender as well as the receiver.

These are more than just cards. They are harbingers of good times for those who have not been fortunate enough to see many.
