Anthony Crawford (Washington, DC)


Regular price $6.00

This card is handmade by Anthony Crawford of Washington, DC. The Tree of Life is one of his favorite cards. Anthony uses embossing techniques to raise the texture of the letters and give it an elegant touch. You'll have to trust us that it looks better in person, we're lousy photographers. 

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 and Second Story Cards donates an additional 10% to a charity of the cardmaker's choice. Anthony has chosen Street Sense for this card.
