10th Birthday Share Joy Campaign

Share Joy Badge

At the heart of Taylored Expressions is our mission to share joy through the gift of handmade cards. We believe the simple gesture of creating and sending a handmade card carries extraordinary potential to make the world a more joyful and hopeful place. Doing this by ourselves is not nearly as fun as seeing hundreds of card makers around the world join together to bring joy to thousands of people. So as TE turns 10 we're launching a new Share Joy Campaign and we want you to participate!

The focus of our new Share Joy Campaign is on creating and distributing birthday cards to retirement communities, long-term care facilities, and nursing homes across the United States. We currently have 8 organizations that will accept cards, and we’re looking for more. The cards you make will be used in at least two ways:

• For residents to send to loved ones for their birthdays

• For staff members to celebrate resident’s birthdays

In these ways we hope to make thousands of people feel special on their birthday, because they are!

Will you join with us in sharing joy through the gift of handmade birthday cards? By participating you will be entered in a drawing for one of ten $25 gift cards to the TE web store. To enter, your package of cards must be postmarked by October 15th. For each card donated you will receive one entry into the random drawing, so the more cards you send the greater your chance of winning! Winners will be announced on the TE blog on October 30th

As you think about joining in this campaign there are some guidelines to be aware of:
