THANKSGIVING 2013

Thanksgiving Cards For A Cause Campaign // atiliay.com

Introducing Cards For A Cause the Thanksgiving 2013 Campaign!  This Autumn, send your loved ones a postcard or card and provide meals for families across the USA through FeedingAmerica.org. It’s a fun way to tell the people who are important to you why you are thankful for them while making a positive impact right here in our own backyard.

Send a postcard to a loved one for $3.75 (postage included) and
provide 10 meals

Send a card to a loved one for $5.00 (postage included) and
provide 15 meals

All cards available in the CFAC // THANKSGIVING section of atiliay’s Etsy shop!  Here are all the details…

{  THE POSTCARDS + CARDS  }

This collection features messages and images for the fall season!  All of the text is hand lettered and the leaves are hand carved from linoleum an individually inked and printed. Each item is hand cut / folded from French Paper Co’s 100 lb. kraft paper. This paper is produced from green hydropower which is better for our planet!

Each postcard / card will come with info on the campaign, how many meals that item is providing, and where to learn more.

I will be keeping track of everyone who is participating in this campaign here on the blog, instagram, twitter, and facebook.  I am hoping we can raise 365 meals for Feed America this Autumn!

{  THE CAUSE  }

Feeding America

The cause for this Thanksgiving’s Cards For A Cause Campaign is FeedingAmerica.org.  With $5 or less, we can make sure 10 or 15 more people will have a meal this holiday season.

Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.  Their mission is to feed America’s hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.  Each year, the Feeding America network provides food assistance to more than 25 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States, including more than nine million children and nearly three million seniors.  The Feeding America network secures and distributes more than two billion pounds of donated food and grocery products annually.

FA has the highest rating of 4 stars by Charity Navigator with 97.9% of its funds going directly to its programs and services.

{  THE DETAILS  }

All cards can be purchased easily and securely from atiliay’s Etsy shop.  Postage is included in the pricing and I will be hand writing each postcard and card.  I will be mailing out the postcards / cards on Nov. 14, 2 weeks prior to Thanksgiving to give it sufficient time to get to its destination.  Any orders received after that will be processed within 1-3 days.

SHIPPING- All items will be sent via USPS, their estimate for these items is 3-5 days within the US.  However with the holiday season approaching, post offices may work a little slower.  The time also varies depending on which post office it is processed at.

TRACKING- Tracking will not be provided because it is quite expensive and these items are quite small.  However I will be sending you an email with a photo of your completed postcard and the date it was sent.  This way we can see that it was addressed correctly and on its way.  After the items are mailed it is out of my hands– I am not responsible if it gets lost and cannot guarantee it will arrive as that is the post office’s responsibility. If for some reason I have addressed the card incorrectly, I will redo and replace ASAP and mail (without any additional fees).

{  SPREAD THE WORD  }

Please help spread the word so we can help feed as many folks as possible!  My goal is to raise 365 meals and I am hoping we can reach it together!  Please share on Facebook, tweet about it, pin it, email and tell your friends, family, and co-workers!  One simple share can really make a big difference!  Thank you so much!
