Cards for a Cause

Mandala by Heather Hawk Maxwell

Cards for a Cause, a new Create Thrive Grow greeting card series, raises money for organizations promoting justice, dignity and compassion for all beings. When you purchase a card in the Cards for a Cause series, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the organization to which the card is dedicated.

The first card in the Cards for a Cause series is titled ‘You Are Loved’. I created this card in Skylar Lee’s memory (read more about Skylar’s story here). Skylar was a committed LGBT advocate, so I have chosen to dedicate a portion of sale proceeds from this card to GSAFE.

GSAFE, as described on their website, increases the capacity of LGBTQ students, educators, and families to create schools in Wisconsin where all youth thrive.  They do this by:

  • Developing the leadership of LGBTQ students,
  • Supporting Gay-Straight Alliances,
  • Training educational staff on creating safe and supportive school communities,
  • Advancing educational justice, and
  • Deepening racial, gender, trans, and social justice.

The ‘You are Loved’ card is a 5×7 blank artisan quality greeting card packaged with a colored envelope in a clear cellophane envelope.

Cards are available individually for $4, 5 for $18 or 10 for $34.

We will have these cards available at upcoming Create Thrive Grow events – check out the events page on my website. They will also be available through our Etsy shop when we get that set up. Alternatively, to purchase cards or to inquire about selling cards through your organization or store, contact Heather at
