Fishbowl Greeting Cards

Posted Jul 15 2009 8:07pm 1 Comment

There's a new greeting card company which now offers cards featuring people with disabilities -- Fishbowl Cards, Inc.

I'm not sure how I feel about the idea. Of course, there seem to be greeting cards for almost every occasion -- divorce, for example -- and I do understand the impetus for dolls and other toys to be offered that reflect the identity of the buyer.

But, the ugly truth be told -- and despite nearly 50-years riding around boob-high to the world -- I would not put disability as the first element of that which makes up Gary.

The card designs are interesting, and fill a niche, all the same, and I wouldn't be offended if someone thought to send me one.

Hi Gary, I came across your post and was very interested in what you said. You are spot on when you say Fishbowl Cards is filling a niche, one that has been completely ignored, until now. I am using my 30 plus years in the social expressions industry to try and make a difference. The feedback that I'm getting is imperative to the growth of Fishbowl Cards. If you have any ideas for a card I would truly like to hear them. My goal is to bring autonomy to those with a disability and to educate those without. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much. Tina Finn, President, Fishbowl Cards.
