Founded in 2011 by best friends and business partners Derek Sparta and Emil Jorge, Cardraising is a personalized greeting card business that donates 30 percent of every purchase to the school, charity or cause of the customer's choice. With Cardraising, customers can give back to their local animal shelter or child's elementary school while purchasing a product they will actually use. This holiday season, and every season to come, Cardraising is the smart choice for personalized cards.

How to Order Holiday Cards That Make a Difference:

  1. Visit www.cardraising.com and choose a cause that will receive 30 percent of the purchase. From the American Red Cross to Will Rogers Elementary, hundreds of schools and charities are available with more being added each day.
    Note: If a cause is not currently listed, choose "add a cause" at the bottom of the page to submit the organization's information.
  2. Find a favorite template from the hundreds of designs and upload an image through the user-friendly program.  Add a warm, personal message to friends and family.
  3. Select the desired card size and quantity and continue to purchase. A box in the top right corner of the screen will show how much will be donated to the chosen cause as a result of the purchase.
  4. Enjoy the holiday season knowing that ordering from Cardraising is a simple decision that can have a big impact.

Tip: Get ahead of the holiday craze and order cards early. As a special bonus this holiday season, all orders placed at www.cardraising.com before December 15 are automatically entered to win a $2,000 cash prize.

In addition to donations raised on an individual-by-individual basis, Cardraising is ideal as a school or charity fundraiser. Cardraising removes the stress and hassle typically associated with traditional fundraising programs, like cookie dough or chocolate sales, by handling every step – from orders to production and distribution. All the organization needs to do is encourage their supporters to select their cause when purchasing from Cardraising.com. For all orders placed by December 21, Cardraising will even cut and send a check for 30 percent of purchases attributed to that school or charity by the end of the calendar year.

"Cardraising taps into the already-popular personalized greeting card market with the goal of funneling money back into local communities," said Emil Jorge, co-creator of Cardraising. "Thirty percent of every purchase, even beyond the holiday season, is donated to the cause that is closest to our customer's hearts."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
