The Card Project
The Card Project provides an opportunity to showcase and sell artists' creations while providing a safe and supportive environment to be expressive.
Women who participate create handmade note cards and receive $1.50 for each of their cards that is sold. Cards are sold at The Gathering Place for $2, and are also carried at several retail outlets around Denver.
The importance of The Card Project to the artists cannot be overstated: one in eight is currently homeless. The financial benefits are underscored by more intangible benefits such as increased self-esteem, the opportunity to be part of a caring community, and the chance to engage in creative self-expression.
Businesses and families often place orders for their holiday greeting cards, and thousands of cards are sold at arts and craft fairs each year. Special orders also may be placed for wedding invitations, birth announcements, or for cards for other occasions.
**Please note that we will begin accepting 2013 holiday orders on August 19. All large orders of 200+ cards should be placed by mid-November to allow time for production.

We are looking for volunteers to staff tables to sell our cards at craft fairs this year. If you are interested in helping, contact Andy at the email address or phone number above.
