It’s that time of year when we all focus our energy on giving. Personally, I enjoy finding ways I can help my fellow Chicagoans. It’s such an amazing city but there’s a lot of heartache and hardship too. Inspiration Corporation is an organization that focuses on helping people affected by homelessness and poverty by increasing their self-sufficiency as a “catalyst for self-reliance.” They offer social services, employment training and placement and they are committed to improving people’s lives.
I heard about Inspiration Corporation from my friends at hāzel, as they are very active with their fundraising efforts. Every year Inspiration Corporation asks an artist to design a holiday card for them to sell to raise funding. hāzel asked if I would be interested in designing a card for IC’s annual holiday card fundraiser. For me it seemed like a small but important way for me to give back to our community. That was in 2012 and I am honored to say, they have asked me to design every year since. Below is our 2016 design available now.
If you would like to support this wonderful cause by purchasing holiday cards, you can order them here. 100% of the profits go to a wonderful cause that directly improves the community and your purchase is 100% tax-deductible. Inspiration Corporation gives people an opportunity to reach their potential while positively impacting the health of our community. They’re truly the definition of giving-back.
