Our greeting cards serve as a platform to showcase the artistic talents of those involved in and around the prison system.  We would like to create opportunity for artists to share their work and point of view.  Please contact us if you are interested in the work of any particular artist(s) featured on our cards. 

It is easy to respect a person's place in this world when things are comfortable and pleasant, but how does society feel about someone who has lost their way?  Coping, healing and accepting circumstances surrounding a loved one who is incarcerated can be emotionally draining.  Maintaining heartfelt communication can have a tremendously positive impact on all relationships affected by the absence of a loved one.  Perhaps you want to write, but you may not know where to begin when you put pen to paper.  Our greetings are written from a place of understanding of the emotional process.  If our cards help to capture a thought, we can only hope it will serve as a means to convey your message.  Simply sending a written message can profoundly transform the day of someone who matters to you. 

Write to Matter started in our hearts and was ushered into existence by the universal love that connects us all. Driven by our life experiences and vision for social change we started this project.  With humble hearts we began our work bringing our vision to life in 2011. Write to Matter is our response to the mass incarceration crisis in our country that results in tremendous wasted human potential.  As teachers and mothers we know that it is misguided to define people by the error of their ways for the rest of their lives.  We believe the essence of every human being is valuable and people have a right to matter. Rather than perpetuate suffering, we hope to inspire peace.  As Write to Matter continues to grow and evolve, rather than fear the unknown, we are propelled by what lies ahead.  We strive to embrace every moment on this journey.  

In unity,

Delores & Mary Joyce
