2. What is this for? Who am I supporting?
Blossom Ireland is an Irish charity supporting young people with intellectual disabilities (ID) and their families. For over a decade, we have been tirelessly supporting this community, providing learnings, resources and supports to families across the country. In 2020, we introduced My Blossom Channel, our online learning platform for young people with ID. This platform is Ireland’s first and only fully-accessible blended learning platform for our community!
3. How long do the cards take to arrive?
We endeavour to post all cards within two business days, following the order being placed. If you have any concerns around timing, please get in touch!
4. Can I have the cards sent to family & friends outside Ireland?
Of course! However, we ask that you cover the costs of postage internationally (we ship within Ireland for free). If you’re ordering international cards, please drop us a message at email@example.com. Alternatively, you can order a card to be posted directly to you, which you can then post on internationally.
5. How are the cards personalised?
On the back of the card, we’ll add the recipient’s name at the top and mark which giving level you have chosen.
6. What are the cards made from?
Our cards are printed on 200gsm seeded paper – it’s infused with a mix of summer flower seeds and it’s 100% biodegradable! The cards are also printed in the EU, in an effort to further reduce our environmental impact.
7. How do I plant my cards?
You can plant them in the same way you’d plant any other seeds! Just pop the card into a hole in your garden, add some water and let nature do the rest.
8. I want to order cards in bulk.
That’s great news! Our order form can take orders of up to 5 cards, so if you’d like to buy more than that, just drop us a message and we’d be delighted to organise that.
9. How is payment taken?
Payment is taken directly via our order form and is processed by Stripe. Blossom Ireland does not receive, process or store any card information.
