really awesome
VW cards
(not my words!)

I designed these greeting cards for the Buses by the Beach raffle and silent auction
in 2006. When people described them as "really awesome," I thought I'd make them available more widely.

Click on the images below to see larger versions of each card. There is no message inside. Unless otherwise indicated, all photos are by Joy Hecht, and are copyrighted.

The price for the ten cards is $20, which includes shipping to the US or Canada.

Buses by the Beach is a fund-raiser for the Phoenix Society, an organization that helps burn survivors cope with life after the hospital has healed their physical injuries. The price of each pack of cards includes a $5.00 contribution to help continue their work. These contributions will be matched 2-to-1 by Todd Olsen's company, XTRA Lease, Inc., so your purchase provides $15 to the Phoenix Society.

To order cards, I'm afraid you'll have to go through two steps. First, please send me an email with your name and address and how many packs you'd like to order. Second, please click on the "buy now" link below to make your payment through paypal. Since I am on the road, paypal is the only payment option I can accept. When I've gotten your email and the message from paypal indicating your payment, I'll send the cards out right away. But if I'm overseas (it happens, I have to work sometimes!), I won't be able to send them till I return. In that case I'll let you know that there's going to be a delay.

If there's enough demand for cards to make this into a more professional operation, I promise I'll come up with a better system! But for now, I'm running pretty small scale (and definitely not making any money on these cards), so this will have to do.
