Greeting Cards Showcase Work of Individuals with Autism, Special Needs

The greetings cards feature 12 unique drawings and paintings by individuals with autism, down syndrome and other developmental delays.

Sunflower Hill, an East Bay non-profit seeking to create an intentional community for individuals with special needs, has launched their first micro-business featuring artwork of its members. 

The Sunflower Hill greetings cards feature twelve unique drawings and paintings of sunflowers - all captured and imagined by individuals with autism, down syndrome and other developmental delays.  

"We felt this was a great first micro-business to launch," said Lynn Monica, a Sunflower Hill board member who served as the project manager.  "These cards depict the spirit of our organization. Each card and flower design is unique, just as our children are."   

The cards are packaged in sets of 12 and are available for $20 on the Sunflower Hill website (www.sunflowerhill.org) or via mail at P.O. Box 11436, Pleasanton, CA 94588. 

"Sunflower Hill is a volunteer run organization so all proceeds go directly to our vision of a special needs community." said Monica.  "We think they make perfect holiday gifts!"

Thanks to a grant from the Livermore Valley Rotary Club, Sunflower Hill will be launching its second micro-business in early Spring 2014.  The Rotary Club funded a garden project which will allow Sunflower Hill members the opportunity to grow and sell sunflower plants, flowers and seeds.  

Sunflower Hill seeks to change the paradigm of both institutional and home living options for individuals with special needs  by creating an intentional community that supports a sustainable, warm and productive quality of life.
