Support The Arts

Our adult artists have worked to create a greeting card boxed set to coordinate with the doTERRA Introductory Kit. These artists generate much-needed income from selling their artwork through our Art Initiative Program. Each set contains one of each card; lavender, lemon, and peppermint. The reverse side contains a subtle yet convenient QR code to help educate your card’s recipient about our Art Initiative Program, the artist who created their card, and the Easterseals doTERRA shopping opportunity.

Greeting Card Details

Each card in this set of three is 4″ x 6″ in size, blank inside, and comes with an envelope. The set costs $10. The original paintings were made in our art studio by the three artists pictured above; Jason, Wanda, and Ana. All three artists have been attending our Adult Day Training program for many years and have worked hard to grow and develop their artistic skills with the help of our Art Initiative Program instructors.

This card set would make an excellent gift for someone special. To purchase a set of cards, email Mary Little at mlittle@easterseals-swfl.org.

Make it an extra special gift by including a matching set of essential oils, called The Introductory Essential Oils Kit. You can purchase this set and other doTERRA products through our Easterseals’ doTERRA link. Your purchase of products using this link helps support Easterseals Southwest Florida.
