Greeting Card Campaign: 11-15 National Philanthropy Day

November 15 is National Philanthropy Day, a day to honor the contributions of the nation's many philanthropists to those in need, and to worthy causes.The official National Philanthropy Day website states that the day is set aside to "recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy – and those people active in the philanthropic community – have made to our lives, our communities and our world." The day was established by Association of Fundraising Professionals in 1985.

Tell your little giver how much you appreciate her generosity to you with this free downloadable, printable National Philanthropy Day cardJust click on the caption below the picture of philanthropist Andrew Carnegie - the great builder of public libraries in the late 19th and early 20th century. The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a top fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "portrait" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This also flips the inside upside down from the outside when you print in portrait mode, so that, when you fold it over, the inside comes out right side up.  If you're confused, I encourage you to give it a try with a practice sheet.
