The only thing that should be separated by color is laundry
I was delighted to be sent some greetings cards by Color Blind Cards. As part of a mixed family myself, I had already noticed the lack of cards that depicted non white children and adults. I am not sure my son has even noticed that he is any different from me, apart from his dark eyes and curly hair (we have the same legs and feet and head shape and smile), but I am still, like Jessica of Color Blind Cards, very eager for him to grow up seeing positive images of people of all skin tones, and yet in many ways our diverse society is not reflected in the products we buy.
These cards are a refreshing change and are beautifully crafted and come with a range of similar gifts such as bags, mugs, wrapping paper, magnets and clocks. They can be personalised, though I had a bit of trouble doing this and could not seem to do it on my tablet at all. There is a great accompanying blog, and I would love to see an email subscribe option for this. I’d also like to see a facebook and twitter link on the website too, so that I can easily follow them. The cards are sent for next day delivery if they are ordered before 3pm – perfect for last minute panickers like me!
They produce cards principally for black and mixed race families and I’d also love to see some mixed ‘other’ people too – my son’s friends include mixed Singaporean and Filipeno (they would make gorgeous models too, as would the Cub, with his cheeky cute grin, hint hint!).
I will definitely be buying from them in the future, they are fabulous cards for any person, and if your child is from any background, the message remains the same: be fabulous, and be you.
The prize they are offering is 12 assorted cards, a notepad and a fridge magnet.
The competion will be open to UK & Ireland and run until the 22nd October.
