Tiny Pine Press Gratitude Cards from the Joyful Heart Foundation. Set of 6 for $24.
A practical gift this time of year. These sweet cards feature the word “Gratitute” and a single Swarovski crystal on the front and the mission of the Joyful Heart Foundation on the back. The Joyful Heart Foundation is an organization that aims to heal, empower, and educate survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. It was started by actress Mariska Hargitay who plays Detective Olivia Benson on the popular television show Law & Order SVU. 100% of the proceeds of this card go to Joyful Heart. Purchase here.
Finally, no matter what you buy, if it can be bought through Amazon.com, Ebay.com, or a whole host of major online retailers, it can be purchased in such a way that a small portion of the proceeds go to RAINN. You can click links to those websites or download an app that will automatically route you through their system at this link.
Thanks so much for shopping to support these important groups, and from all of us at SACS, have a wonderful winter break and a safe and happy holiday!
