Throughout the year, we work with several organizations to ensure that the people they work with are being validated as often as possible! We believe that everyone deserves to be met right where they're at, and to be reminded that they're loved. We are happy to work with organizations of all kinds to ensure that as many people as possible are given words of encouragement and validation. The organizations we regularly partner with are listed below. If you have any questions, or are interested in having Compassion Cards supply cards & letters of encouragement for your own organization, please send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you!
All Worthy of Love is a justice focused nonprofit organization in Detroit, MI, Austin TX, and Indianapolis, IN, that reaches out to men and women enslaved by street-prostitution. They partner with Compassion Cards to ensure that the people they encounter in their outreach efforts are met with an inspiring and encouraging word. Together, we believe that people need to know what’s right with them, not what’s wrong with them. AWOL utilizes Compassion Cards to do just that.
