How One Woman with Down Syndrome is Spreading Joy
One Creative Card at a Time
When was the last time you received a card in the mail that warmed your heart? This month let someone know you care with an artful greeting card, while also empowering those with disabilities to share their talents and abilities. Open your heart and send someone a card from Laura’s Greetings in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day March 21. A portion of your purchase covers the adoption fees of a child with special needs.
For birthdays, thank yous, congrats, well wishes and holidays, these one-of-a-kind cards were the starting creation of Laura, a 41-year-old artist with Down syndrome. Every Laura’s Greetings card is designed by an individual with an intellectual disability like Down syndrome or autism.
Card snobs will love the high-end cardstock and witty puns that accompany Laura’s artwork. Also, you’re sure to score some brownie points somewhere for slipping a card (or two) in the snail mail. Cards are sold individually and in convenient packs and Laura has a card club subscription so you can share some new puns each month!

Laura Barrett is the 41-year-old artist with down syndrome behind Laura’s Greetings. Painting has been a passion of hers since childhood and with the help of her aid Hannah Lee and Lee’s husband, Laura transformed her art into clever greeting cards. Those who know Laura feel she has one other interest that rivals art: Zac Efron. She has posters of him everywhere in her room including a life-sized cardboard cutout. She often goes about her day wearing a lanyard with his picture in it! Laura’s other favorite things include dogs and ice cream cake.
