San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 7, 2006
Roman holidays, Paris in the snow, Yellowstone wildlife, the serenity of Machu Picchu -- it's all a click away this holiday season with Here Comes the Card an online card service launched today by two sisters who share a passion for photography and travel. With 25% of Here Comes the Card membership fees ($4/month or $24/year) being donated to charity, you can spread good cheer and goodwill, too.
"Email is a great way to stay in touch, but finding online cards with personality is not easy," said Maura Kendrick Allen, one of the two sisters behind the new venture. "Here Comes the Card lets you pick from 500+ original black and white photographs taken around the world. Now you can stay in touch in style, and help great organizations do great work."
Here Comes the Card will donate 25% of membership fees generated now through February 28, 2007 to the following charitable organizations:
- CARE for empowering women to help their families and entire communities escape poverty
- Girl Scouts of the USA for helping girls build confidence, leadership skills and life-long friendships
- Sierra Club for raising awareness about the environment and what consumers can do to protect it
Internet users can send their first five cards free, reaching up to 50 friends and family members. Registration as a monthly or annual member provides unlimited card sending capabilities in an ad-free environment.
Here Comes the Card features the photographs of Kathleen Kendrick and Maura Kendrick Allen, two sisters from a San Francisco Bay Area family of eight who share a passion for photography and travel. The site's 500+ photographs are arranged in easy to navigate portfolios, including Art/Architecture, Travel, Nature and Slice of Life, as well as a Happy Holidays portfolio for sending seasonal cards.
A search engine makes finding images by location, theme or subject easy. The two sisters will post new photographs monthly. Next stops: Yellowstone and Thailand.
"We've been photographing and traveling together since we were teenagers and are still amazed at how we see the same things differently," said Kathleen Kendrick, co-founder of Here Comes the Card.
Cards sent from Here Come the Card arrive from the sender's personal email address, and appear with the selected photograph and personal message in full view. The site's "My Cards" feature allows members to track and resend card images and messages. The site was developed by Emeryville, California-based Turing Studio.
