Fighting fire with Halloween cards

Halloween cards - proceeds benefit San Bruno fire victims When an enormous fire roared across San Bruno, California, on September 9, it destroyed homes and uprooted hundreds of people. Scary–unbelievably scary. But it couldn’t have been more terrifying for anyone than the children and families whose lives were suddenly changed forever. 

So as Halloween slinks into view and we start planning parties and costumes for out little ghosts and ghouls (and–sigh–wannabe Lady Gagas), here’s a good way to help those in San Bruno who have had to face real-life scary stuff.

Paper Culture, a Cool Mom Picks favorite, is donating 100 percent of proceeds from its amazing Halloween party invitations and cards
to support the San Bruno community. Really: every penny spent on these
so-stylish-you-want-to-throw-a-party -just-so-you-can-send-out-invites cards
goes to San Bruno.
I love so many of them it’s hard to even pick which one I’d recommend first.

Oh, and Paper Culture also plants a tree with every order
of its recycled paper cards. No trick there. This deal is
made entirely of treat. —Lexi

    oh how awesome! my dad actually lives only a few streets away from where the blast happened. he was evacuated for the night, and then was able to go back home the next day. i’m located on the east coast, so you can imagine the scare i received when i saw the news! my heart truly goes out to all the victims out there. such a horrible tragedy.
