Special Artist Donates Card Proceeds to MGMF


We are touched and honored that Lauren Marsh, a cognitively challenged and gifted young artist, chose the Mary Grace Memorial Foundation to be the recipient of proceeds from the sale of her handmade cards. Lauren was on hand at the 2014 Race with Grace selling her cards. She sold 53 cards and donated 100% of the proceeds ($160) to the foundation. 

Lauren wanted to make a contribution to the community in which she lives and to make beautiful art that people can enjoy! So, one by one, she created a series of butterfly monoprints on card stock. She then added a little bit of "sparkley" and turned them into greeting cards to carry a hopeful, cheerful, thoughtful, joyful message to someone. Every card is hand printed one at a time by Lauren, so each card has its own unique “personality!”

Even though the race is over, you can still purchase the cards. They are $3.50 each, or 5 for $15 and come packaged in a plastic sleeve. In addition to sending someone a heartfelt message with Lauren's cards, you'll be giving back because  a portion of Lauren's proceeds will be donated to the Mary Grace Memorial Foundation.

You can purchase cards by emailing anitra@zoominternet.net.
