How do I get cards to distribute?
- Use the contact form at the bottom of this page, to make your request.
- Choose how you will partner with us to expand the reach of the Art Card Charity and the We Remember You Walk.
- Locate the donation chart below to calculate shipping cost.
- Donate appropriate amount using the ‘Donate’ button on the upper right margin of this page (the orange paypal button).
Please be sure to verify that you already have permission if you are planning on distributing through a Hospital, Dr’s Office or ministry. While the cards are a FREE gift you will need to pay the shipping and handling fees and partner with us in some way to expand the reach of the art cards.
Is there a limit of Art Cards I may request? Currently, no. However we do ask that you give thought to how you will be using them.
How are Art Cards funded? 100% donations. Once a year ~ as a part of International Infant Loss and Remembrance Day (Oct 15th) ~ I organize a social media campaign to raise funds for Art Cards. When donations are totaled I am able to announce the amount of Art Cards that will be printed and shared the next year on March 11th (the day may daughter Amelia was stillborn).
How many Art Cards have been donated to date? I am so proud to say that we have shared over 32,000 Art Cards worldwide in both English and Spanish translation!
Is the Art Card Charity a non-profit organization? No. I currently do not have a 501c3 status. It is my hope and goal to have Art Cards become a separate non-profit in the future, however my immediate focus is to use all donations to print and share the Art Cards.
I heard that Art Cards are now gone (distributed)? Unfortunately, once they are printed and announced online as available, they go quickly. If you are in need of Art Cards, you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You or your organization may decide to fund a small batch of Art Cards for your needs.
What exactly do you mean by “partnering” with you? Sadly, every day thousands of women will lose a child. Thousands of families will experience the life-changing grief that accompanies it. Far, far too many of those women and families feel alone in their loss. We ask that you partner with us when you request Art Cards because for every woman who receives this precious keepsake to remember her child by, for every family that gets this small reminder that they are not alone in their grief, there are so many who will not. Our heart is to change that but we can not do it alone. We are just two mothers trying to turn the tide of grief one card at a time and in order to expand the reach of these cards we need your help, your influence, your reach. By sharing with your Social Media, or adding information about the cards to your newsletter, or adding us to your resource page you stand with us and break the silence surrounding loss.
Do I have to have a paypal account? No, paypal is simply a tool that also accepts major credit cards and allows me to invoice when needed.
Why does it cost money to get these cards, I thought it was a free gift? It takes a tremendous amount of effort to raise the funds to have the cards printed, I simply can not cover the costs related to packaging, shipping, paypal, and endless trips to the post office. I am also a mom on a budget and these little increments of cost add up quickly!
How much will it cost to have the quantity of Art Cards I request shipped? I have weighed the cards in batches of 50 and formulated a basic chart for the cost to ship in the continental USA. Shipping to Canada or Overseas will be calculated differently. I plan on sending these media mail and first class international, so if you need them FASTER, please contact me so we can arrange it. If you would like a different quantity I am happy to send you an invoice. There is currently NO LIMIT to the amount of cards you request. I just ask that you have the means and plan to distribute them. So, that means if you need 600+, then ask for them!
If the quantity you would like is listed below, please send along a payment by using the ‘Donate’ button on the Right side of this page. This is an approximation only, if there is a giant discrepancy, I will email you requesting the difference. Once your donation is received, I will ship out your Art Cards!
