HOLIDAY CARDS AND GIFTS
We're so excited to have brand new cards with exclusive artwork created by the students of the Art Creation Foundation for Children in Jacmel, Haiti. There are a couple of ways that these cards can be yours:
1. Holiday Gift Donations. Make a donation of $20 or more in the name of a friend or loved one, and we will send them the card of your choice, with a message telling them that a donation has been made in their name, and by whom.
2. Holiday Card/Ornament Sets. Make a donation of $50 or more, and you (or a friend) will receive a set of all six cards, plus a beautiful bird ornament, handmade and signed by an ACFFC student. Each bird is unique, but they are all equally stunning.
After you donate, be sure to email us at email@example.com and let us know where you would like your gifts sent, and to whom.
Note on shipping: Domestic and internation shipping on all items is our treat. There is no deadline on when you can make your donation, but please keep in mind that they are being from the US, and give yourself enough time to guarantee holiday delivery. Gifts will be sent within 48 hours of receipt of donation.
All proceeds go directly to the Art Creation Foundation for Children. ACFFC is a nonprofit arts organization created for education and personal growth of children in need in Jacmel, Haiti. They are currently supporting 95 children and their friends and families.
For some background on the Thousand Words Project, please visit our profile page.
Jenny painted four gorgeous portraits of children in Jacmel specially for the Thousand Words Project. For every $50 you donate, we'll send you an 8x10" print of one of them! If you donate $200 or more, we'll send you the complete set of four plus a beautiful papier-mâché bird made by a child at ACFFC.
By donating, you will be giving the children at ACFFC not only food, health care, and art supplies, but also reassurance that they are cared for and encouragement for them to pursue their education. We hope the portraits will serve as a visual reminder of those special children whose lives you touched.
To receive your gift, forward the thank you email from Crowdrise / Network For Good to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which portrait(s) you'd like. If you don't specify any, we'll surprise you. ;) Please make sure the shipping information in that email is accurate or provide us with a different shipping address. We do ship internationally, and shipping costs are on us.
If you'd like to donate some time and energy instead, we invite you to join our team and help us spread the word! Fundraising is an awesome hobby to get into, we promise.
