Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.

Quote from Mary Jean Iron. Card by a friend who is putting some of the income to relief efforts. Posted by Picasa

The Community Artisans' Bazaar is starting to heat up with talents and efforts for those in the wake of the storm down south. Louisa Wimberger, creative force behind weehah! cards from Charlottesville, VA, was inspired by Amy Carol Webb's recent donation idea and designed this quotation card.
I find the quote SO relevant right now, when I am feeling grateful for even being able to buy a loaf of bread at the store, drink tap water, walk down a street, or pick up a phone and talk to friends/family.

My oldest childhood friend has lived in New Orleans for almost 15 years, and she and her husband just finally bought a house right in the city two years ago. All gone now, as you know. I can't get her off my mind, and feel quite helpless. So, here's my little effort from Charlottesville on a beautiful and sunny day.

The cards are $3.00 each, or a pack of 8 for $18.00. For the month of September and perhaps beyond, she will give half the proceeds of this particular card to the American Red Cross. Her donor plan allows her to cover the necessary costs but still set aside a substantial amount to donate to the relief efforts. She accepts orders via phone (434.923.0561). Cards can be sent for a minimal postage fee.
