Cincinnati Children’s and Kolar Design Raise Over $76,000 with Valentine’s Card Campaign

(March 7, 2023) Cincinnati, OHIO – Cincinnati Children’s partnered with Kolar Design to invite friends from near and far to send Valentine’s Day cards to patients, utilizing curated card designs from artists Helen Wells, Cedric Cox, and Lindsay Nehls and printing services from RPI Graphic Data Solutions.

Those interested in sending cards simply chose one of six designs through an easy online form and then the cards were printed and delivered accordingly. The campaign also sought to raise money for the hospital, with Kolar Design matching up to $20,000 toward the effort.

Through the campaign, Cincinnati Children’s was able to raise $76,500, including Kolar’s full $20,000 match amount. More than 245,000 cards were sent to patients, from 49 different countries and all 50 states in the U.S.

“We’re honored to be able to support this cause year after year, and we’re overjoyed to see such fantastic results from the campaign this year. It’s an honor to give back to Cincinnati Children’s, an organization so near and dear to our hearts,” said Kelly Kolar, President & Founder of Kolar Design.
