I checked my inbox this morning to find that one of my greeting card designs is being featured in an Etsy Treasury today for The Killian Mansfield Foundation. My letterpress printed “String of Cranes” card is the left most item in the third row. Click on the link if you want to check it out for yourself.
Killian is a 16-year-old boy in upstate New York who is suffering from a rare form of cancer. Killian’s favorite story is the Japanese tale of Sadako and her 1,000 paper cranes. If you haven’t ever heard of the story, you should read more about it here. Killian is also apparently a very talented Ukulele player and you can purchase a CD of his music from the treasury by clicking on the link at the top. All of the proceeds from sales of the CD benefit his foundation. Go check it out!
