Hope For Women Giveaway

I want to share a very favorite product of mine - handcrafted notecards from Hope for Women. These notecards are probably my favorite gift to give, and I keep my gift closet stocked with extras. Not only are they exquisitely beautiful, but the cards are handmade by women in India who may not otherwise have a way to help support their families. (I met many women in similar circumstances during my time in India to study nursing. You didn't know I was in India? I'll blog about it soon) Of coure, I like that the flowers used to make the notecards are grown in organic gardens, and Hope for Women is also a member of the Fair Trade Federation. Read more on the Hope for Women Blog.
Hope for Women is giving one reader a set of 4 notecards. To enter, visit the Hope for Women website and then leave a comment on this post telling me which collection of notecards is your favorite. Entries will be accepted until Friday, Dec 21st. I'll randomly pick and announce the winner that weekend.

If you can't wait to win the giveaway or want to use the notecards as a stocking stuffer, you can find Hope for Women notecards on their website or find them in a store near you.

They are all so beautiful! I think the valley collection is my favorite, but only by a very small margin. Definitely cards worthy of framing.

I would frame the mountain collection. I love the cards and the whole idea behind them. They're beautiful.

I love the Meadow collection. I wish there was a store near me (or even within 100 miles) that sold them. I didn't see an option to buy online either - but I am oblivious sometimes and don't see things right in my face.
