What happens to all the cards we don't sell?
We print a lot of greeting cards, and often times there are ones with minor imperfections - a small dent on a corner, a crooked fold, slight discoloration - that make the cards unsellable. However, these "imperfect" cards remain perfectly usable and appreciated by many.
We donate these cards to ForLikeMinds and Fountain House, to be used for the Psych Ward Greeting Cards Program. This program was created by ForLikeMinds to deliver greeting cards from strangers to patients at participating hospitals, including the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic at New York Presbyterian Hospital in NYC. Sharing even a simple written message can have a wonderful impact on a patient who might be at a low. ForLikeMinds touches thousands of patients via this program. We have donated hundreds of cards, and plan to continue doing so.
Interested in helping the program somehow? Submit an anonymous message online HERE, and we'll transcribe it into one of our donated cards. Even a simple message, quote, or favorite poem, can being incredibly impactful for someone living in a psychiatric hospital.
