Collection “My Friend” supports animal shelter
This time, we have chosen to talk about a social issue - people attitude towards animals. We believe that with a postcard you can not only excite somebody, but also educate and make people think. With a collection of postcards “My Friend” we call for people to be observant in their attitude towards animals, and more appreciate the work that animal shelters do. It is important to understand that the animal is not a thing or an accessory, but a friend, a member of the family, who must be treated in the same way as any living being, the same as you want to be treated - with care and love. Half of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to an animal shelter “Astes un Ūsas” the shelter will celebrate its 10-year birthday in August, 2021.
Postcards with value!
It is wonderful, thanks to your support through purchases or entrusted photographs, to create motivational events for people with disabilities. However, it is a drop in the sea, when you really can't know where and when it will create an echo, pulse, movement... And because of that, even more wonderful, it is to provide support for a particular person. For person who does - because he knows, everything starts with himself. Who creates - to support himself, rather than living from state benefits. Who promotes positivity and love. We are excited that we can offer you the new postcards. These are very special postcards, because they have been created in cooperation with a strong man in spirit, the painter Mareks Odumiņš. You've had a chance to get introduction to him in one of our articles. His paintings have come as our postcard reproductions. Half of revenue from this postcard collection will be directed to Mareks, to serve as a small support pillow for everyday life.
