Every year at Penny People Designs we design a card where 50% of the proceeds are donated to a specific organization/charity. It's been a great pleasure to be able to do this for worthwhile and sometimes lesser known groups.
In the past we've supported the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Rethink Breast Cancer, and our most recent card was our George Herman house card, a home in Toronto that supports women living with mental health issues by teaching them life skills, as well as offering them a nurtuing environment to live.
We're looking now for the next organization, and although we have some that we're considering, we'd love to know what you think, and welcome you to post some ideas. No organization is too small. Our goal is to obviously be able to donate needed funds to a group, but also bring awareness to a charity that may otheriwse not get it.
I look forward to hearing any ideas & suggestions! Just so you know, this isn't a contest of which organization can get the most "nods" as it comes down to a number of factors as to whether or not we actually CAN do a card, but we're truly interested to know what our clients, the ones that will be purchasing a card, would like to see us be involved with. Please post your feedback!
UPDATE: November 1st, 2008
We've picked our charity and will be announcing it shortly! We're right now designing the card and look forward to launching it!
