When I worked for some big companies my wrist would often get sore and cramped personally signing my name on 300-500 holiday cards for clients at the beginning of December. Now that my client list is somewhat smaller, sending seasonal greetings is a much more pleasant task especially since we’re pretty much a paper-free office.
However, if you are looking for some meaningful cards to share with friends, family, peers, and contacts, I suggest looking at Notes to Nourish.
Notes to Nourish is a grassroots project featuring original art by Lower Mainland artists and designers. The contributing artists are: Chris Allen, Sarah Cavanaugh, Nova Hopkins, Luke Krienke, Jean Lee, Anne Pearce, Robyn Sommerville and Kathryn Wright.
There are two limited-edition sets of four cards and proceeds raised will go to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society and the BC SPCA.
The cards present a unique way to give back during the holidays; you are supporting two non-profit organizations, local arts and culture, and presenting sustainable greetings to your friends and family.
You can purchase the cards online for $15 (or one set for $10). I think these cards are a great option, however I was wondering if people still send greetings such as these (in this age of emails and e-cards).
