Atiliay Valentine's Day Cards For A Cause Results{Since the time this photo was taken, even more meals have been raised!}

Valentine’s Day Cards For A Cause raised over 7,000 meals for children at The Ebongalethu Educare Center Preschool & Nursery in Motherwell, South Africa! Each meal consists of a nutritious porridge that helps the children at The EEC grow, fight disease, concentrate during schooling, and it also keeps them happy and energized.

This could not have been possible without each and every customer who decided to send and spread love this holiday–THANK YOU!

The Valentine’s Day cards for a cause fundraiser is very important because we are the sole donors for The EEC and they depend on Atiliay’s donations to continue to provide meals for the little ones they care for.  Raising 7,000+ meals will cover about 3-4 months of food (depending on the number of children who go there which ranges from 40-60 per day). Throughout the rest of the year Atiliay will continue to raise meals through our love cards, cake boxes, and other items in the shop to ensure that The EEC receives meals all year round.

Thank you again for helping to make all of this possible!

The photos you are seeing here are from a series of cards for a cause informational Instagram posts! Each post tells you more about the cause and how you are helping with each purchase. Head over to our IG to read the captions that go along with each photo.

Atiliay Thanksgiving Cards For A Cause 2015 - Each card provides 5 lbs of produce for low income families and seniors throughout San Diego County via

So far 119 lbs. of fresh produce has been raised with our Thanksgiving cards for a cause!  Every card helps to provide 5 lbs of produce for low-income families and seniors throughout San Diego County through (postcards are available by request). Head on over to Atiliay’s shop if you’d like to pick up a card or two.  I can also send the card directly to your recipient with a handwritten message inside making it easy peasy and stress-free for you. I recommend getting orders in by tonight (11/16/15) so that I can get them out to you / for you in time for Thanksgiving.  I’d love it if we could raise 200 lbs. together and share a bit of what we have with others!


I am So Thankful For You - Thanksgiving Card - By Atiliay

I’m excited to share with you this year’s Thanksgiving cards that are paired up with Harvest CROPS!  There are 5 new designs to choose from and every card will provide 5 lbs of fresh produce to low-income families and seniors (to give you an idea 1 lb is about 3-4 oranges).  Harvest CROPS is a non-profit serving the county of San Diego by harvesting residential fruit with volunteers for the benefit of those in need.  I really love the work they are doing and I am glad the residents of San Diego are finding a way to put their excess bounty to good use!

Each card features hand lettered text and is adorned with leaves made from hand carved stamps. There’s something for everyone–those of you spending time with family, those of you having Friendsgiving celebrations, and I got your vegetarian and vegan loved ones covered too with the “Happy Thanks Living” card!

Take some time before the craziness of the holiday season starts to tell your loved ones why you are thankful for them–I think some happy mail will make their day! :) And don’t forget your holiday hosts and hostesses who put a lot of time and effort into making sure everyone’s bellies are full and happy!

My goal is to provide 500 lbs of fresh fruit and vegetables this Thanksgiving–I hope you will join me in reaching this and making sure families and seniors in Southern California have access to healthy and fresh food!
