Share Joy Campaign
With the recent launch of our new web store, we here at Taylored Expressions have had time to reflect upon the creative journey that has brought us here. From Taylor's first cupcake-inspired stamp set, to the introduction of Taylored Dies, to the creation of our Stamp of the Month program, it has been a wonderful adventure.
At the heart of Taylored Expressions is a mission to share joy by helping our customers live creatively. This is by no means an original idea. Since the first greeting cards were made and exchanged back in the 15th century, the making and giving of handmade cards has been the mission of a long line of creative people who intentionally share joy through the creation of these little bits of happiness.
Taylored Expressions is proud to introduce our
Share Joy Campaign.
We'd like to invite you to join us as we return to our roots to rediscover the joys card-making can give and we welcome you to send us your handmade cards.
Several times a year, Taylored Expressions will work with a carefully chosen charitable organization to receive your creations so that we can all share the simple joy of card-making.
To kick off our Share Joy Campaign, Taylored Expressions will help to provide handmade cards to hospital chaplains across the country. From the challenges of long-term illness, to the grief of passing, to the joys of birth, hospital chaplains are a stalwart source of comfort and guidance for patients and family members undergoing life's myriad experiences. As Taylor's own father served as a hospital chaplain, and Jon counts several among his friends, this first Share Joy charitable organization is one that holds special significance for the Taylored Expressions family.
