“Friends and family won’t remember what you said…they only remember how you made them feel…”

“Karing Cards by Katie make your family and friends feel loved…”

“My hand crafted, custom designed cards are unlike any card you’ve given. They are specially designed to touch the deepest emotions of the ones you love…”

Dear Friends…

My name is Katie Philip, I am 20 years old and have Cerebral Palsy. In the summer of 2007 some very important people in my life started me on stamping.

I live in Victoria BC, on the West Coast of Canada. I went to Salt Spring Island for the day with my Teaching Assistants, my Twin Sister and my Mom when we came across a vendor in the country market who was doing a demonstration with stamps. My Mom claims that I was smiling from ear to ear and laughing as I watched.

For my birthday everyone I knew bought me different stamps. Although I don’t have very good control over my arms, I am able to concentrate and relax when I have a stamp in my hand. My Mom has to be patient with me as I choose each stamp, ink color and paper design. My Mom places her hand over mine, and together we create beautiful cards.

I can’t do it alone…

My family helps me make my Karing Cards. My 13 year old Sister Molly and my Twin Sister Sara help me by cutting and coloring the cards. This is a family effort and time together which I enjoy, but I need your help too.

When you purchase one of my Karing Cards you are doing more than just giving a card. Not only are you conveying emotion but you are helping me make others happy too!

Helping others makes me very happy.

Katie donates $1835.00 to Can Assist and is featured on their website

The engineers at Can Assist created a head control stamping machine which allows me to stamp the images with a hit of a switch. As a result of this amazing machine I am able to create wonderful cards for you which is something I love to do.
