RCMA Christmas Cards
Christmas produce. Holiday palm trees. Children from RCMA draw colorful Christmas scenes that are converted into holiday greeting cards for sale in an annual fundraiser.
When you buy a $15 box of cards, you entitle RCMA to $240 in matching funds from the state.
We offer four selections:
- General cards, for individual purchases. We offer three choices, plus a variety pack.
- Exclusive cards, for companies and other large buyers desiring their own unique card. This year, we widened the selection to 40 from 30. Minimum order: 100 cards.
- Note cards, with non-holiday content, appropriate year-round. These include thank-you, note and birthday cards.
- Stationery, versatile all year.
This project began in 1998 at the suggestion and direction of A. Duda & Sons, a grower based in Oviedo. Every year since then, Duda has donated countless hours and expertise in organizing the fund-raiser and contributing financially to its success. The fund-raiser has been extremely popular with Florida growers as well as the general public.
As part of the effort, RCMA also relies on "Print Angels" to contribute $500 each to help offset printing costs. Nineteen companies are Print Angels. Additionally, Florida's Natural Growers Foundation contributed a $3,000 grant.
The brochure featuring annual designs is published early fall. The deadline to order exclusive cards is Dec. 15th to ensure delivery before Christmas.
