I have launched a #sendacard campaign on Trademe.
I have A LOT of card stock currently in the studio due to most of my normal stockist currently still being shut or having quite limited trading.


Its very simple.... if you would like to send a card to someone you love right now I can help you with that!

Just browse my Trademe listings to see all the different card designs I currently have in the studio and if you see a card there that you like buy it ❤

Then you can e-mail me the message you would like written in your card and I will do so and post it on your behalf.
Check out all my listings here... there is currently 37 different designs so hopefully you can find something you like :)

I have also added some original art work and some limited edition prints.
www.trademe.co.nz...

I have set my auctions up with free shipping nation wide as that seemed like the simplest hassle free way to do it but please note - postage to Australia or world wide is not problem at all.... it will simply cost additional $1.30 per stamp for any extra stamps needed.

Price: $8

What is the mission or goal of your organisation/group? Our aim is to keep the members of our community with disabilities working and engaged in their community. As a not-for-profit Trust, one of the ways we do this is by providing employment and work-experience opportunities for people who live with special needs and disabilities.

What do your volunteers do? We have a great team of volunteers who do nursery work,weeding, bagging plants, pruning, watering, back filling stock, and supporting our workers.

How does your organisation’s/group’s work help/support/develop the community? We are one of very few businesses that support people with disabilities in work.

Are you currently recruiting volunteers or will you be doing so when the government restrictions are reduced? We will be seeking new volunteers when we are out of COVID levels. We will be looking for a range of skills including customer service and maintenance.
