Anthony Crawford (Washington, DC)


Regular price $22.00

This set of 6 cards is handmade by Anthony Crawford of Washington, DC. He loves Christmas and can sometimes be spotted around town wearing his bright red Santa Clause hat. "There is something magical about the holidays. People are friendlier, even strangers who might normally walk by me with their head down greet me with a smile." After being homeless for nearly 20 years, Anthony got the keys to his own apartment on July 15, 2013. Today he earns enough money to pay his rent by selling the Street Sense newspaper at the corner of 19th & M – just a block away from where he used to sleep on the street. Although he experienced some setbacks in 2016 after suffering a stroke, Anthony says that he is thankful to have a safe place to sleep and the opportunity to work.

Anthony receives 15% of the sales from this card. Second Story Cards donates an additional 10% to a charity of the cardmaker's choice. Anthony has chosen Pathways to Housing for this card. 

This set of 6 cards comes in a plastic box. If you'd prefer to reduce your environmental impact and receive the cards without the box, please let us know in the comments of your order.
