The card collection for dads who are no longer with us, created by thortful.com for Father’s Day
- 100% of profit will be donated to Life for a Life, supporting the creation of Starling Wood, a memorial forest in the UK
This father’s day thortful.com are working with Cards to Heaven, created to honour Fathers who are no longer with us.
Founder Vyvyan Greenall explains the concept: ‘I thought about creating Cards to Heaven after losing my Dad. His loss was so painful, and I felt it so much during special times like birthdays, anniversaries and especially on Father’s Day. I wanted to write a card to my Dad and had nowhere to send it. It saddened me to send a card which I then put on a grave, to see it destroyed by the rain before being removed. I didn’t think I’d be alone feeling like this and Cards to Heaven was created. The Facebook page is a visual memorial to remember these very special Dads, where you can send a physical card and have the message to your Dad displayed.’ Vyvyan goes on to say ‘death feels so final, but this allows a small comfort and a way to express your feelings telling Dad how much you love him.’
The new Starling Wood will be created by planting 8000 trees, creating a bio-diverse woodland which will become a home for many species of birds and other wildlife as well a place of refuge for the local community. We don’t aim to stop there, as the project will go even further than just creating a new woodland. On target completion of the project will lead to the raising of £90,000 that will be donated to hospices and health related organisations that support those in the community.
Deputy CEO Emma Scott from Life for a Life said ‘Working with thortful and Cards to Heaven has given the Starling Wood restoration even greater meaning, helping to turn the pain of loss into something positive, especially on a special but sometimes difficult day like Father’s Day’.
100% of the profits from this collection will be donated to this very special charity.
