Brenner Children’s Offering Annual ‘Footprint’ Holiday Card

November 24, 2015

Since 1998, the Brenner Holiday Card Project has offered a festive opportunity to send holiday greetings to loved ones while supporting Brenner Children's Hospital, part of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. 

The 2015 annual Brenner Children’s footprint card illustrates a Christmas tree designed from infant Ruth Lupita Cristobal’s footprints. Ruth was born earlier this year weighing less than two pounds; she is now home with family after an extensive stay in the Brenner neonatal intensive care unit.  All proceeds from this card go toward Brenner Children’s.

Ten cards and envelopes are included in a set and sell for $10 a pack or $8 a pack if more than ten packs are purchased. The inside of the card reads, “Wishing you all the joys of the holiday season.” 

In addition to the Brenner Children’s footprint card, another card option created by Elkin artist, John Furches, and titled “Candle Light” is available for purchase. Furches’ card displays a Moravian candle and snow scene that features the same holiday greeting inside as the footprint card. This is the 17th consecutive year he has donated artwork to the Brenner Children’s card project.

Cards can be purchased by phone at (336) 716-7987. Cards are also available for purchase from local store partners: Golden Apple, Mainstream Boutique, Southern Home and Kitchen, Bevello, Rosie’s Hallmark, Monkees of The Village and Accessorize This.
