“Wonder what will happen this time!” That’s what our founder thought as he boarded his EXTREMELY delayed flight back to Michigan. This was sparked because during a recent flight from Toronto the airline was having problems with a lot of their flights. They ALL were delayed hours. During this wait, he sparked a conversation with a couple consultants from Duke University. When he responded “I started a non-profit” after their standard “What do you do?” question, they immediately desired to learn more. Soon after, one of the two ladies had already started planning out when and where they’d start to introduce Cardz for Kidz!.
Now what makes this a bit more exciting is another story about Minnesota State University. They first heard about Cardz for Kidz! during a prior trip to the airport. The founder stepped into a conversation after he heard they worked with students. They began talking about how their students had made cards in the past and would like to make some again. As of April 6, 2016, Minnesota State has made a total of 438 cards; of the 80+ participants they’re one of the Top 10 groups.
Now, if he could just make conversations on the train or bus lead to mass amounts of cards then we wouldn’t have any shortages in Q3!! J …so if you meet someone who might be interested in Cardz for Kidz!, don’t hesitate to let them know. We appreciate all the help we can get! It’s been through word-of-mouth marketing that our organization has been able to TAKE OFF.
