If you've read our last blog entry (see below), you already are familiar with how My Good Greetings worked with Linda Lee to create custom notecards featuring the artwork by children in the Cambodian orphanage. What I didn't mention, when I wrote that entry, was that the reason the drawings were outlined and not colored in was because the children at the orphanage did not have any colored markers. When I learned this, it broke my heart. Being a graphic designer in the US- and someone who takes so much prosperity for granted, my heart ached when I learned that these children with their big, bright smiles, didn't have colors for their wonderful artwork. I immediately decided that I would put together a care package of colored markers and my assistant Dawn added loads of colored pencils and sharpeners. We boxed it all up and mailed it off to the orphanage with a friendly note. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to receive these wonderful photos back in return. Just look at these darling kids. I wish them many happy drawings!

Recently I was contacted by a very nice woman named Linda Lee who had a wonderful idea to raise money for an orphanage in Cambodia. She explained that she would like to print note cards with hand-drawn pictures on the front of the card- drawn by the orphans themselves and a photo and hand-written letter on the back of each card. As she told me more about her project and about the orphanage, I knew immediately that I wanted to help out however I could. As I received each hand-drawing, photo and hand-written note, I fell in love with project even more. Linda is a wonderful person and she is sending 100% of the proceeds of the sales of these cards directly to the Chres Village School and Orphanage in the Bakong District of Siem Reap, Cambodia.
These cards, which are blank inside, make wonderful thank you notes. I'm going to use them for my own children's thank you notes. The illustrations are not colored in and my boys are looking forward to coloring them before they send them out. I think it's a wonderful way for my young boys to make a connection with those that are not as fortunate. It beats sending a Mickey Mouse or Spongebob thank you note anyday!
To purchase your own set of Thank You notes and make a donation to the Orphanage in Cambodia, please visit Linda's website at http://kocalee.wordpress.com/

I think we can all agree that making green choices isn't always easy- or the most convenient. Sure, it's easier to shoot off to the grocery store without a care in the world, and say "paper or plastic"- then remembering to bring your reusable bags. Sure it's easier to throw your empty aluminum cans and plastic milk containers right into the kitchen garbage can- then walking the few extra steps to the garage and the recycling bin. Sure it's easier to let the water run the entire time you brush your teeth- then remembering to shut the faucet off while you brush. Sure it's easier to buy a plastic bottle of water with your to-go lunch- then remembering to bring your reusable steel water bottle. Life is definitely more convenient, and completely mindless to take the non-green route. But is it better in the long-run? Is easier and convenient always better?
At My Good Greetings, we believe that the extra effort to make mindful, conscious, green decisions- even small little green decisions- add up to make a BIG difference in the long run. That's why in addition to making green choices in our every day life, we strive to make green decisions with our products and how we ship our products. Sure it's easier (and cheaper) to shrink wrap our cards in plastic and fill the box with packing peanuts or sealed plastic air. But what will that do to the environment in the long run? That shrink wrap and those packing peanuts would go right in the garbage- to lie for an eternity in landfill without ever decomposting. We believe that easier isn't always better so we choose to wrap our cards in 100% recycled, FSC Certifed paper and seal the wrap with a 100% recycled sticker and place it in a recycled cardboard box with recycled kraft paper stuffing- all of which will decompose quite nicely and quickly. Thank you very much! And we think it looks a lot cuter than plastic shrink wrap- I bet mother nature would think so too!
