When it comes to gift giving we all know it has to come in pretty paper. As my brother use to say, it doesn’t matter what you put inside the box if it looks pretty on the outside. The problem with that thinking, you can spend more money and time on the outside than you planned.
This year why not make the outside count and use wrapping paper that does double duty. It looks pretty awesome AND it helps to save lives. I’m talking about the American Cancer Society’s More Birthday’s campaign with custom designed wrapping paper.
While this paper doesn’t look like your typical Santa Claus, angel or snowmen Christmas paper be assured that each design was inspired by and tells a story. In addition to wrapping your gifts in love you’ll be helping to further fight and hopefully find a permanent cure for cancer.
The gift wrap is 24″ x 36″ and prices are around $15 for 4 sheets. Not only can you purchase the artwork of your choice in the form of gift wrap but also as posters and limited edition prints.
Go to www.morebirthdays.com to pick out the design(s) of your choice. In addition you can create your own Birthday Page to share with family and friends to help raise money for cancer research and send birthday greetings by various celebrities via video or phone to your favorite family members and friends. I just sent a birthday greeting to my favorite cousin and the calls are free. I chose Keith Urban and recorded a personal greeting to be played before the song. As I said you can do this for free BUT you can also make a donation (minimum $5) when the call is sent. How neat is that you can send a personalized birthday wish that’s even better than a card (at least in my opinion).
So when you’re looking for the perfect gift or gift presentation go no further than www.morebirthdays.com where you’ll also be helping to save lives.
