Cards that give back is an initiative that began with a long-standing goal to incorporate a way to give back to the community through my small business. I’ve always wanted to find a way to use paperscript products to create awareness surrounding important issues and bring joy to those who need it, and so Cards That Give Back was created.
Here at paperscript, we’re so thrilled to give back to an incredible organization. The Abbey House Transitional Home for Indigenous Women provides support to women in crisis and homelessness by assisting them in achieving emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical well-being.
After learning about this valuable program through Fallon Farinacci [left, @fallonfarinacci], a profound speaker and advocate for MMIWG, we partnered together to create this card trio. As a lifelong local to Niagara, I feel a strong connection to this organization and to the desire to be an active member in my community, working towards the greater good. I also know that we all have a long way to go educating ourselves and advocating for the rights of Indigenous communities. As a mom of two girls, I think the importance of supporting women can be overlooked and we must continue to create space for these organizations and the conversations they encourage.
With this initiative, we were able to raise an incredible $1,756 for the Abbey House. I am motivated by engaging with organizations that support efforts near and dear to my heart. Thank you to everyone who purchased and supported this important cause!
