To all of my fellow Phish fans, and supporters of The Mockingbird Foundation, I am thrilled to announce the first offering of Mockingbird Holiday cards and ornaments found here: http://mbird.org/2017-holiday/.
During this season of giving, there is no better way to show your support for music education for children than customizing your own Holiday cards. These cards are created in conjunction with Picaboo Cards for various causes: https://www.picaboo.com/cards-for-causes/the-mockingbird-foundation/.
You will have a choice of creating a custom collage of your pictures from 2017, utilizing one picture that sums up the year, or simply creating your own design. The back of the card provides an inspirational message from The Mockingbird Foundation that speaks in the one language that truly unites us all: sweet, sweet music.
The ornaments are available at http://www.cafepress.com/themockingbirdfoundation, and there are three to choose from. Each contains a different special message to decorate your home or tree with cheer, love and light through the season. We hope you enjoy them. Designs were created by Annie Nicholson and Elayne Best, featuring the Foundation logo designed by Heather Hanly.
The Mockingbird Foundation greatly appreciates your continued support. As we are run entirely by volunteers – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are very low, so nearly every penny of your donations ultimately supports music education programs for children. So far, the Foundation has distributed over $1.1M to the cause of music education for children – 348 grants in all 50 states, with more on the way. Your support will ensure further grant opportunities while bringing holiday cheer to all. Thank you!

The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
