Honor Loved Ones with Better Basics Holiday Cards

Are you looking for a way to honor friends and family this holiday season, but you don’t know what to get them? Nothing could be more simple than sending Better Basics’ holiday honor cards. For only $10 per card, you can honor a friend with a donation in his or her name.  To acknowledge the donation, we will send a wonderful card announcing your gift.  The inside of the card provides a description of Better Basics and reads, “A donation has been made in your honor by:__________.”  The holiday elves at Better Basics will address and mail a card to each person you honor, or we will mail the cards directly to you so you may send them.

This year, students at Minor Elementary, Greensboro Elementary, Huffman Academy, and Barrett Elementary created the fabulous pieces of art that are featured on the cards as a part of the annual Better Basics Holiday Card Contest. All eight winning cards are featured below.

To send cards to your friends, simply send us your holiday list via email to sblank@betterbasics.org.  Make sure to let us know which card design you would like to send. Then you may make a donation of $10 per card through Paypal by clicking this link, or you may mail a check to Better Basics at 211 Summit Parkway, Suite 108,  Birmingham, AL  35209.  These cards are a great way to honor your friends and family, and support at-risk students in our community during the holiday season!
