After Hurricane Katrina hit, a bunch of us in one of my Yahoo groups decided that we wanted to do something creative to make some money to donate to the victims. We came up with the idea of making a deck of cards and any sales from them would go to the victims. These five cards were my contributions. We named the deck 'Wings of Hope' and we sent the original deck to 'Oprah' to see if she would be interested in helping us with our mission. We did hear back, but not with the news we wanted to hear. Unfortunately, nothing has been done with these cards since and I would love to do something about it. Does anyone know where we can get these original cards made into decks of playing cards? I know a lot of people who would love to see this happen! Any info would be very helpful and appreciated!

good luck on finding someone to print these , they're really cool. Your daughters are so cute together in that shot but I can't believe you get as much done as you do with two of them!

I remember working on these! I hope you can find a source for printing. I would certainly be willing to pay for a deck!!!! I'll look around and see what I can find!
Love the darling picture of your girls below!
