We have been stocking Message Mark cards for a few weeks & they are just the bees knees, I want to tell everyone just how much I love this range & company! Message Mark cards are all made to order in New Zealand, they are printed on 100% recycled card and they are really cute. Like really, really cute! Kyrie Kohlhagen who started Message Mark has an inspiring story too-
"At the age of 30 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. During my illness I quickly realised that small acts of kindness can make a big difference.
As I went through the different stages of my Cancer treatment, I made thank you cards to give to everyone that helped me along the way - doctors, nurses, specialists, volunteers, family, friends etc. It was my way of showing my appreciation and to say thank you.
I saw the impact that a small gesture like this made to a person’s day. It encouraged them and simply made them feel appreciated and this also made me feel good inside.
Six months later when my treatment was complete I ventured back to work, but within a few weeks I suddenly felt that what I was doing in my day-to-day job felt really meaningless. I just new I had to make some significant changes in my life and it was time to fulfil some of my personal life goals.
So I made the big move, quit my job and found a job working 3 days a week so I had 2 days to develop my goals -
-Make a difference in the community by supporting various charities
-Teach and show people the benefits of giving to one another
-Create a spirited, supportive and caring online community
-Utilise my creative, marketing and technical abilities"
Love your work Kyrie! X
