A New Line for a New Year!

Happy New Year, Creative Changers! As promised in my previous post, Creative Change has come out with a NEW line, the Milestones pack. Just think of how many milestones will happen this year - engagements, births, weddings, graduations, mother's day, valentine's day, birthdays, and many more! Thinking about all the cards you will need to buy for these milestones can be overwhelming, especially when cards usually cost from $3-4 per card - how expensive!

Here's where the Creative Change Milestones pack comes in: for only $14, you get a pack of 8 milestones cards and envelopes. That's only $1.75 per card - what a deal! Each Milestone card has a special feature such as textured paper, embellishments, or 3-Dimensional components, giving each card a unique look.

Please check out the pictures of sample Milestone cards below. Each pack will include an assortment of cards from the following list: mother's day, congratulations, love, baby, inspirational, valentine's day, father's day, wedding, graduation, thank you, quotes, just because, thinking of you, or birthday. Special requests are available (for example, 4 graduation cards and 4 thank you cards).

Just think how thankful you'll be as milestones arise and you already have the PERFECT card to give to a loved one - no trip to Hallmark necessary!

All proceeds from the January sales of Milestone packs will go to Shared Hope International, a group working to end human trafficking.

Happy New Year!

Thanks to many generous Christmas shoppers, Creative Change raised nearly $400 for Shared Hope International! I've been reading more about the human trafficking industry (in a book called Not for Sale), and am continually shocked at the atrocities that are committed daily around the world. Our New Years campaign will continue to support Shared Hope International. I'm excited for this new line of cards - it's a perfect start to the New Year! (More details will be posted at the end of the week).

I hope to see an end to human trafficking in my lifetime, and I'm so thankful that we can make a small difference through Creative Change.

Thanks for your support!

The AUAP Makes a Creative Change!

While WWU students were off enjoying the snow (and a break from school!), Japanese students from the Asia University America Program gathered to assemble cards for Creative Change! It was the first time volunteers assembled all of the materials I prepared (usually I overshoot it by quite a bit)! We had a great time listening to Christmas music, eating cookies, and, most importantly, putting over 400 beautiful cards together. Thanks to all who participated in our LARGEST card making party ever!
